Exhibition Regulations
The exhibition manager (the "Exhibition Manager"), acting under direction of the organising committee, has the final decision as to the acceptability of displays. Exhibitors are not allowed to share with others any space allotted to them without prior written consent by the Exhibition Manager. The Organiser reserves the right to alter the general layout or limit the space allotted to each Exhibitor, postpone the exhibition or transfer it to another site if unforeseen circumstances warrant such action. Should any contingency prevent the holding of the exhibition, the Organiser will not be held liable for any expenses incurred other than the cost of exhibit space rental fees. All exhibits are to be displayed so as to avoid blocking aisles, obstructing adjoining booths, damaging the premises or the leased equipment. The Exhibitor is kindly requested to allow sufficient see-through areas, which ensure clear views of surrounding exhibits. In standard booths, height is restricted to 246cm. Exhibitors are responsible for the cost and execution of the design, installation and delivery of their display to (and its removal from) the exhibition site. Flammable materials are not allowed to be utilized. Equipment displayed or demonstrated must be installed with strict adherence to safety measures. The Exhibitors undertake to observe the timetable designated for completion of their display before the exhibition opening and its dismantling at the close of the exhibition. No dismantling or packing of the display before the designated hour is allowed. It is the Exhibitor's responsibility to pack and remove or consign for shipment all items of value prior to leaving their exhibit unattended, otherwise the Organiser will arrange for their removal at the Exhibitor's risk and sole expenses. Exhibitors are obliged to ensure that their stands are permanently staffed during the exhibition opening hours. Payment is to be made in accordance with the conditions of payment listed in the prospectus or as shall be agreed in writing with the Organiser. Should the Exhibitor fail to make such payment on time, the Organiser shall be entitled to terminate the contract, withdraw confirmation of acceptance, make other arrangements for the space or seek compensation for nonfulfilment of contract. Participation by Exhibitor is dependent upon compliance with all rules, regulations and conditions stated herein. Access to the exhibition is authorised on presentation of a badge issued by the Organiser. Exhibitor's badges will not be mailed in advance and may be collected from the Exhibition Manager’s desk on the exhibition commencement date. The Organiser ensures daily cleaning of the aisles. Exhibitors are responsible for the cleaning of their stands. The provision of refreshments for the participants by Exhibitor is only permitted if the catering regulations of the exhibition building concerned are observed. Organiser is not liable or responsible for the quality and/or quantity of the Exhibitor’s refreshments. The Exhibitor shall fully indemnify, defend and hold harmless the Organiser, its shareholders, directors, employees, agents and representatives, from and against any and all liability, losses, claims, actions, proceedings, injuries, demands, fees, penalties, judgements, fines, damages, costs and/or expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs) sustained or incurred by any third party in connection with the use or consumption of the Exhibitor’s refreshments. All demonstrations or instructional activities must be confined to the limits of the exhibition stand, with prior consent from the Organiser. Advertising material and signs may not be distributed or displayed outside the exhibitor’s stands. Advertising panels and display are not permitted outside the exhibition areas allotted to the Exhibitors. Sound equipment must be regulated and directed into the stand so that it does not disturb neighbouring exhibits. The exhibition management reserves the right to require the Exhibitor to discontinue any activity, noise or music that is deemed objectionable. Exhibition areas and fittings made available to Exhibitor must be handed back in their original condition. In case of damage or loss of equipment provided, or damage to areas occupied, repair and replacement will be charged to the Exhibitor. Any special decoration or fittings must be submitted to the Organiser for prior authorisation. The Organiser will not approve stands, which do not comply with the accepted standards, until the necessary changes have been made.

Industry Code of Practice
It is the Exhibitor’s responsibility to comply with the local authority’s regulations, EFPIA (European Federation of Pharmaceuticals Industries & Associations), Eucomed (represents Medical Technology industry) and IFMPA (International Federation of Pharmaceutical Manufacturers & Associations) code of practice on the promotion of medicines. Failure to comply with these regulations may not be used as a ground to declare the contract void. Failure to comply with the rules and regulations will not expose the Organiser to any suits, demands by the Exhibitor or any other third party.

Absolutely no promotional activities will be permitted in the same room immediately prior to, during, or after a CME activity. Exhibit materials must be in a room or area separate from the education and the exhibits must not interfere, or in any way, compete with the learning experience. All promotional activities including interviews, demonstrations, and the distribution of literature or samples must be made within the Exhibitor's space only; canvassing or distributing promotional materials outside the Exhibitor's rented exhibit space is not permitted.
