TERMS OF CONTRACT
1. PAYMENTS AND TERMINATION OF CONTRACT.
If the terms of booth payment as set forth on this contract are not met,
the rights of exhibitor to the space shall cease and terminate. Space can

last 45 days before show opening, no refunds will be made for any

2. COMPLIANCE WITH LAWS AND REGULATIONS
Exhibitor agrees to obey all laws, ordinances and regulations governing
the use of BOONE COUNTY FAIRGROUNDS and to abide by the rules
and regulations of the City Fire and Police Departments, and such
other public officials whose duties may regulate exhibits. All decorative
materials used in displays must meet the flame-proofing regulations of
the Fire Department. No tacks, nails or screws may be driven into the
walls or floors of BOONE COUNTY FAIRGROUNDS. No tape, adhesives
or pressure-sensitive stickers may be placed on BOONE COUNTY
FAIRGROUNDS walls or pillars. No signs may be taped to walls. No sticker,
pressure adhesive, etc., or helium balloons may be distributed. The
playing, performing or other use of any copyrighted music in television
or radio transmission, video-tape, audiovisual material, or any other
work, whether live or recorded, by exhibitor or agents, representatives or
employees is expressly prohibited. Exhibitor agrees to indemnify
the BOONE COUNTY FAIRGROUNDS and Projects by Cathy Erickson (and
their respective officers, directors, owners, employees, insurers, agents,
representatives and assigns) against any and all claims and
costs of defense, or fees paid by Projects by Cathy Erickson arising
from any unauthorized use of any work by exhibitor or any of its agents,
representatives or employees. Exhibitors cannot distribute food, including
popcorn and beverages in BOONE COUNTY FAIRGROUNDS unless
approval has been obtained from GREAT INDY PET EXPO management.
Failure to comply with any show regulations may result in exhibitor not
being invited to participate in future shows.
3. BOOTH CONSTRUCTION AND EQUIPMENT
The GREAT INDY PET EXPO will provide an exhibitor identification
sign and number for each exhibit space and where applicable 8-foot back
drapes and 3-foot side drapes. Exhibits shall be arranged so as not to
obstruct the general view nor hide the exhibits of others. No signs,
apparatus, construction, etc. may extend more than 8 feet above the floor
in the exhibitor booth space. The exhibit may extend forward four feet
from the rear wall at the 8-foot height, but further extension must
be limited to a 3-foot height. Deviations from the 8 x 3 regulations
as outlined above may be permitted with GREAT INDY PET EXPO
management approval in cases where exhibit space constitutes a 4-booth
(or more) island. With prior approval of GREAT INDY PET EXPO
management, exhibitors with a 4-booth (or more) island may hang a
banner/sign with company name and/or logo to a maximum height of
16 feet. The banner/ sign may not be used to advertise sales, products or
services and must be set away from the back of the booth at a distance
equal to at least 25% of the booth width. The Exhibitor must finish or
drape the back of unfinished or unsightly structures at his/her own
expense. All tables must be professionally skirted. Exhibitors obtain
electricity, gas, water and special cleaning service for their booths at their
expense.
4. USE OF SPACE AND AISLES
Nothing may be stored behind back wall drapes. All aisles must be kept
clear. Interviews, demonstrations and distribution of literature must be
done inside the exhibitor booth space. Aisles will be cleaned each day
by BOONE COUNTY FAIRGROUNDS personnel. Exhibitors must keep their
own booth space clean and vacuumed. Exhibits must be attended during
all show hours. No loud speakers will be allowed on the exhibit floor.
Small sound amplification systems may be used, but the sound must be
inoffensive to neighboring exhibitors. The exhibitor may not assign this
contract nor permit any other company to share his/her exhibit space
without written permission from GREAT INDY PET EXPO management. No
company can exhibit, pass out literature or put up a sign unless he has a
contract for space with the GREAT INDY PET EXPO. Exhibitors must
conduct all business in- side their exhibit space. Standing in aisles to solicit
customers or walking throughout the Show is strictly prohibited.
5. FUNCTIONS.
It is understood that Projects by Cathy Erickson is merely performing the
function of obtaining a location for and promoting the GREAT INDY PET EXPO.
Neither Projects by Cathy Erickson, nor any of its agents or employees has
made any representations to the Exhibitor beyond those specifically
contained in this Contract. All activities carried on by the Exhibitor or any
other party during the course of the Expo which are not otherwise restricted
by this Contract shall be the sole responsibility of the Exhibitor.
6. PRICE LIST
Advertisement, exhibit, or promotion may include prices but shall not make
price comparisons with competitive products.
7. REJECTION OF APPLICANTS AND EXHIBITORS
The GREAT INDY PET EXPO management reserves the right to reject any
applicant for space at any time and reserves the right to regain possession of
any space by refunding to the applicant or exhibitor the amount he/she has
paid for said space.
8. CHANGES IN BOOTH LOCATION
The GREAT INDY PET EXPO management reserves the right to make such
booth changes as it deems necessary for the good of the show.
9. ATTENDANCE
Show Management shall have sole control over admission policies.
10. LIABILITY INSURANCE
Exhibitor is held responsible to insure his/her own exhibit, personnel, display
and materials from any damage or loss through theft, fire, accident or other
cause. Exhibitor is charged to maintain liability insurance with respect to both
property damage and personal injury, doing business with companies of
sound responsibility authorized to do business in the state of IN. Insurance
certificate must be provided or Liability Waiver signed. Security guards will be
on hand during the show and move-in and move-out periods, and GREAT
INDY PET EXPO management and BOONE COUNTY FAIRGROUNDS personnel
will take reasonable precautions to safeguard exhibitor property; however,
neither GREAT INDY PET EXPO management nor INDIANA STATE
FAIRGROUNDS will assume liability for loss or damage, through any cause, of
equipment, products, goods, exhibits or other materials owned, rented or
leased by exhibitor. The exhibitor shall indemnify Projects by Cathy Erickson,
GREAT INDY PET EXPO management and BOONE COUNTY FAIRGROUNDS,
and hold them harmless from any complaints, suits or liabilities resulting from
negligence of the exhibitor in connection with the exhibitors use of exhibit
space. Exhibitors are responsible for damage they cause to BOONE COUNTY
FAIRGROUNDS walls and floors, including labor charges to remove stains and
adhesives from the walls or floors. Exhibitors will be billed for such damage
with the dollar amount determined by BOONE COUNTY FAIRGROUNDS.
11. DISPUTES.
Projects by Cathy Erickson shall be the final arbiter of disputes between
Exhibitors and/or concessionaires.
12. EXHIBITS WITH ANIMALS. Any exhibitor displaying animals must have all
licenses, permits and vaccinations required by City, State or Federal
government bodies with jurisdiction over the display, care and handling of
such animals. The Expo reserves the right to approve any animal or the
display of any animal at the Expo. Any animal that the Expo or its agents
deem unhealthy, not cared for, too dangerous or in any other way not
satisfactory for display at the Expo must be immediately removed from the
Expo by the Exhibitor upon notification. No animals may be sold. Exhibitors
are responsible for the removal of pet waste, food and other related materials
to the approved waste receptacles.
13. CANCELLATION OF SHOW
If BOONE COUNTY FAIRGROUNDS should be destroyed by fire or if a strike
makes it impossible for GREAT INDY PET EXPO management to permit an
exhibitor to occupy the premises, the exhibitor shall pay for the space only for
the period in which the space was occupied. Projects by Cathy Erickson is
released from any and all claims which might arise in consequence thereof. If
any other event or circumstance not caused by GREAT INDY PET EXPO
management prevents an exhibitor from erecting or staffing his exhibit for all
or any part of the show period, the contractual responsibility between the
exhibitor and Projects by Cathy Erickson shall be considered to be satisfied
and there shall be no refund to the exhibitor. 2020 CE Enterprises
