Exhibitor agrees to obey all laws, ordinances and regulations governing the use of Horizon Events Center 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 bedriven into the walls or floors of Horizon Event Center. No tape,
adhesives or pressure-sensitive stickers may be placed on Horizon Events Center 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 Horizon Events Center 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 Horizon Events Center unless approval has been obtained from GREAT IOWA PET EXPO management. Failure to comply with any
show regulations may result in exhibitor not being invited to participate in future shows.
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 Horizon Event Center 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 inside their exhibit space. Standing in aisles to solicit customers or
walking throughout the show is strictly prohibited.
It is understood that Projects by Cathy Erickson is merely performing the function of obtaining a location for and promoting the GREAT
IOWA 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 event which are not otherwise restricted by this Contract shall be the sole responsibility of the Exhibitor.

Advertisement, exhibit, or promotion may include prices but shall not make price comparisons with competitive products.
6. REJECTION OF APPLICANTS AND EXHIBITORS The GREAT IOWA 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. 
The GREAT IOWA PET EXPO management reserves the right to make such booth changes as it deems necessary for the good of the show.
Show Management shall have sole control over admission policies.
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 IA. 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 IOWA PET
EXPO management and Horizon Event Center personnel will take reasonable precautions to safeguard exhibitor property; however,
neither GREAT IOWA PET EXPO management nor Horizon Event Center 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 IOWA PET EXPO management and Horizon Event Center, 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 Horizon Event Center 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 Horizon Event Center.
Projects by Cathy Erickson shall be the final arbiter of disputes
between Exhibitors and/or concessionaires.
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.
If Horizon Event Center should be destroyed by fire or if a strike makes it impossible for GREAT IOWA 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 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. 2020 CE
