Exhibitor agrees to indemnify the IOWA STATE 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 IOWA STATE FAIRGROUNDS unless approval has been obtained from GREAT IOWA PET EXPO management.

The GREAT IOWA 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 IOWA PET EXPO management approval in cases where exhibit space constitutes a 4-booth (or more) island. With prior approval of GREAT IOWA 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

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 IOWA STATE 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 IOWA 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 IOWA 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.

The exhibitor shall indemnify Projects by Cathy Erickson, GREAT IOWA PET EXPO management and IOWA STATE 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.

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.

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 IOWA 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. 2019 CE Enterprises
