These regulations define the terms and conditions under which the City of Tallinn (hereinafter the “Organizer”) organizes the event.
They are supplemented by the internal regulations enforced by the exhibition organizer, as well as the “safety specifications” and the “Exhibitor technical guide” issued by the organizer. The organizer sends all of these documents to the Exhibitors prior to the event. By finishing the registration and payment process, the Exhibitor accepts the unreserved application of the terms and conditions of these regulations and, where applicable, the event regulations enforced by the organizer. The organizer cannot be held liable if it enforces the provisions of these general terms. The organizer is solely responsible for arranging the event, particularly the opening date, its duration, the exhibition site, the opening and closing times, and the entrance fee. The organizer can modify these at any time, at its sole discretion. Access to the event is limited to professionals with entrance and exhibitor passes.
REGISTRATION AND ADMISSION
The organizer determines the criteria and the categories of Exhibitors allowed to participate. Unless previously agreed in writing by the organizer, the Exhibitor may not present equipment, products or services at their stand other than those listed in their application.
An application is made by completing a form created for this purpose which can be found on the official homepage of the event. By filling out the application form, an Exhibitor is requesting participation. Filling out the form can not guarantee participation in the event.
By submitting an application, the Exhibitor must only present products and equipment which comply with the event and international regulations regarding products, services and processes intended to be used in Estonia and overseas. Exhibitors must take great care to provide the public with honest information regarding the properties, prices, conditions of sale and warranties of their products or services in a complete, objective manner which complies with regulations. They must not publish any advertising or carry out any activity which is likely to mislead or constitute unfair competition.
The organizer examines the applications and rules on admissions and refusals. The participation of the applied company is decided by the committee, which includes representatives of Cleantech Estonia and the organizer. The selection of participants takes into account the general selection criteria, the suitability of the company to our event vision and the number of already registered participants in the respective topics. After making its decision, the exhibitor will receive a confirmation letter regarding participation in NEXPO Tallinn.
For registration, the exhibitor will receive an email with the link to carry on the registration process, including signing up for the digiexpo platform and payment process for a specific expo stand. Finishing the payment for the expo stand constitutes as a definitive confirmation of admission and establishes the Exhibition stand rental contract, provided that the fee is paid by the indicated deadline.
Moreover, the organizers reserve the right to request any additional information in relation to the application at any time and, where applicable, to change its admission decision if the original decision was made on the basis of misleading, incorrect or inaccurate information.
Similarly, if the Exhibitor does not pay, the organizer is no longer required to make the stand available, and it can allocate it to another Exhibitor. Moreover, the organizers reserve the right to pursue payment for the entire fee which is due.
The right to admission is personal and cannot be transferred to a third party.
If the Exhibitor does not occupy their stand on November 12th, they are considered to have withdrawn from the Exhibition.
Without prejudice to other measures taken, the organizers can recover the stand from the defaulting Exhibitor at the Exhibitor’s own risk. This Exhibitor cannot claim any refund or compensation, even if the stand is allocated to another Exhibitor. In this case, the full stand rental fee, including VAT, is due to the organizers for stand rental, even if allocated to another Exhibitor.
REGISTRATION AND PARTICIPATION FEES PAYMENT
Participation fees include application fees, stand fees, cost of cleaning, electricity, booth lighting and heating.
These fees are determined by the organizers and can be revised if the constituent elements change, particularly if the cost of materials, labour, transport and services change, as well as tax and social provisions.
Participation fees are paid based on the deadlines and arrangements determined by the organizers and sent to the Exhibitor in the event kit. The total sum, including VAT, is fixed by the organizers on booking, and the balance is paid by the Exhibitor at the latest by the date indicated by the organizer. In any event, the total invoice amount must be paid in full by the date indicated by the organizer, even if disputed and pending a decision. If the Exhibitor fails to pay, they are not authorized to take part in the Exhibition.
LOCATION AND INSTALLATION OF STANDS
The organizer creates the general layout map and distributes stands.
Unless otherwise stated, registration does not give the Exhibitor any right to receive a specific stand in the reserved zone.
The organizer reserves the right to modify the allocated stands at a later date. This modification does not permit the Exhibitor to unilaterally terminate their commitment to take part in the event.
The Exhibitor is informed of their stand location through a layout map. This map gives the most precise dimensions of the stand possible. The organizer cannot be held liable if there is a difference between the indicated dimensions and the stand’s actual dimensions. Unless otherwise agreed by the organizer, it is formally prohibited to assign, sublease or exchange all or part of the reserved stand for free or for payment.
The stand installation is designed based on the general layout map established by the organizer and pursuant to the indications in the technical guide. A specific installation request must be sent to the organizer for any unstandardized modifications, as well as a report from an approved organisation confirming that the work is stable after assembly at the cost of the Exhibitor. The technical guide will be sent to the registered Exhibitors prior to the event.
The Exhibitor is responsible for installing the stand, and they must follow the instructions provided by the organizers. Materials used to install the stand and its electrical equipment must comply with the conditions imposed by the safety services included in the technical guide. For any reserved stand with 1, 2, 3 or 4 corners, it is strictly prohibited to close off the sides leading onto the aisles. The organizer will not be held liable for constructions or installations built by the Exhibitors. The Exhibitors receive the stands in the condition that they are found, and they must return them in the same condition. Any damage caused by an Exhibitor or by its installations, equipment or goods, particularly to the premises and installations where the exhibition is held, must be paid by this Exhibitor
The organizer reserves the right to remove or modify installations which detract from the overall appearance of the exhibition or inconvenience neighbouring exhibitors or the public, or do not correspond to the layout map and the mock-up previously submitted for approval. A mock-up of the special solutions booth must be sent to the organizers by November 1st, 2023, at the latest. The organizer can revoke its authorisation if neighbouring Exhibitors are inconvenienced or the general flow and operation of the exhibition are affected. Any audio is prohibited unless approved in writing by the organizer
The organizer can cancel or delay the event if it does not receive a sufficient number of applications. The Exhibitor assumes all risks linked to the possibility of the event not taking place, and it will pay all fees that it might have incurred in preparation for the event. The organizer can cancel or delay the event due to a case of force majeure. Cases of force majeure are the cases defined by the law and case law of Estonia as well as all-new, economic, political or social situations that cannot be reasonably predicted and that are beyond the control of the organizer, which makes it impossible to hold the event or poses a risk of unrest likely to significantly affect the operation of the exhibition. In the two previous cases, applications are cancelled, and the available sums, after expenses have been paid, are distributed between Exhibitors proportionally in accordance with the sums they have paid.
It is the responsibility of each Exhibitor to complete customs formalities for equipment and products from overseas. The organizer cannot be held liable for any difficulties which could arise as a result of these formalities.
EXHIBITION SPACE ASSEMBLY AND DISASSEMBLY PERIODS
The “technical guide” determines the time given to the Exhibitor to arrange their stand and install what is needed during the exhibition before the event opens. The organizer determines the schedule to assemble and install the exhibition spaces before the exhibition opens. It also determines the schedule to disassemble the exhibition space, remove equipment, materials and products, as well as tidy up after the event. In terms of disassembly, removal and tidying up, if the Exhibitor does not complete the required activities by the deadline, the organizers can have these activities carried out at the cost of the Exhibitor. Exhibitors must have completed their installation by the date and time indicated by the organizer. After this point, no packaging, equipment or transport vehicle can access or be held on-site for any reason, no matter how damaging this is for the Exhibitor. If the Exhibitor does not comply with the stand occupation deadline, the organizer is authorized to claim late penalties and damages and interest. The Exhibitor or their duly accredited representative is required to be present on the stand when disassembly starts and until the stand has been completely removed. Once the deadline indicated by the organizers has passed, can transport the remaining items to a storage location at the cost and risk of the Exhibitor. It cannot be held liable for any damage or loss caused.
Each Exhibitor is responsible for transporting and receiving their goods. They must adhere to the Co-organizers’ instructions regarding the regulation of goods deliveries and collections, particularly regarding vehicle traffic within the confines of the Exhibition. Each Exhibitor will provide transport for the receipt and shipment of packages, as well as recognition of their content. All goods packages must be unpacked on arrival. If the Exhibitors are not present to receive their packages, the organizers could store, unpack or reship them at the cost and risk of the Exhibitors.
Each exhibition space is cleaned in accordance with the terms and conditions and deadlines which the organizer indicates to the Exhibitors. Packaging, covers, staff lockers or any other object used during closing hours that are not used for the stand’s presentation must be kept out of view of visitors
EXHIBITOR ENTRY PASSES
Exhibitor passes providing access to the event are given to Exhibitors in the conditions determined by the organizer. Unused Exhibitor passes cannot be returned or refunded if the organizers issued them in return for payment. Only Exhibitor passes and entrance tickets issued by the organizer can provide access to the event. The distribution and/or sale of invites or passes issued by the organizer is strictly prohibited within the event and in the immediate surrounding area.
