Terms and Conditions
1. Definitions and Interpretation
2. Applications for Stand Space
Applications for space must be made in writing by completing the booking form in full. The Exhibitor agrees that the Organiser may complete a booking form on the verbal instructions of the Exhibitor. The Organiser may within 7 days of receipt of a booking form, request further information to enable the application to be considered and such further information should be provided within 7 days of request. The Organiser may ignore or refuse any application for stand space in its sole discretion and without providing any reason. Applications which have not been the subject of a confirmed reservation in accordance with clause 3 below or which are not the subject of a request for further information have not been accepted.
3. Reservation of and Payment for Stand Space
Stand space will be reserved for the Exhibitor upon receipt by the Organiser of a booking form which is acceptable to the Organiser and upon receipt of any additional information requested by the Organiser as set out above. The Organiser will issue an invoice to the Exhibitor within 7 days of reserving stand space. A 50% deposit is required to be paid within 24 hours of receipt of invoice and the balance is payable in full within 14 days. Any balance unpaid after 14 days will attract interest at 4% above bank base rate calculated on a daily basis. At any time prior to receipt of full payment the Organiser may in its absolute discretion cancel the reservation and may levy an administration fee of £50 if the reason for such cancellation is wholly or partly as a result of anything the Exhibitor has done or not done. Bookings made within two weeks prior to the show date will require immediate payment. Requests for specific locations cannot be guaranteed and the Organiser may reallocate or assign alternative stand space at any time. Requests for stand space made by means other than by on line booking forms may be accepted at the sole discretion of the Organiser.
4. Cancellation of Space
Exhibitors may cancel any reserved or allocated stand space at any time prior to 10 weeks before the date of the Wedding Show without penalty and the Organiser shall refund the price in full. If the Organiser receives a cancellation request more than 2 weeks before the date of the Wedding Show and less than 10 weeks before the date of the Wedding Show then the Organiser shall refund the value of the invoice for that booking after deducting an administration fee of £50.00. If the Organiser receives a cancellation request during the 2 weeks immediately before the date of the Wedding Show the Organiser shall use reasonable endeavours to resell the stand space once all other available stands for the Wedding Show have been sold. If the stand space can be resold the Organiser shall refund the value of the invoice for that booking after deducting an administration fee of £75.00. If the Organiser is unable to resell the stand space no refund shall be given.

Where space applied for and granted is not occupied by the Exhibitor one hour before commencement of the Wedding Show, the Organiser may in its absolute discretion
resell, re-allocate or otherwise deal with the stand space without refunding any money to the Exhibitor.
