The terms and conditions below are understood and accepted as part of the Agreement between The Stitches Roadshow and those attending or renting booth space at The Stitches Roadshow. For specific dates, times and locations, refer to the current Stitches Roadshow Space Reservation Agreement.
Exhibitor Rules: Exhibitor’s table space may not be re-sold, transferred or assigned. Only the company completing the front of this form may show the products it sells to distributors in your space. You may only exhibit your products and services. You agree that Show in its sole
discretion will assign you your space. You agree that Show in its sole discretion may change your assigned space at any time.
Solicitation of employees/consultants/contractors during the Roadshow hours is prohibited. Your display must be for the sole purpose of promoting Your supplier business.
Insurance: You are completely and solely responsible for Your table space, the materials that You ship to and from the show, and the material in your space whether shipped by Show or a Third-party. Consequently, You should have appropriate insurance.
The ASI Show (“Show”) reserves the rights to reject, eject, or prohibit any exhibit in whole or part, with or without giving cause. Show liability for rejection without giving cause shall be limited to a refund to You of the amount of fees unearned at the time of ejection. However, if You or Your exhibit is ejected for violation of these rules or any other stated reason (with cause), no return of fees will be made.
Table Space Fees: Agreements without payment will not be processed,
without exception. Methods of payment include Visa, MasterCard,
American Express or check.
Additional table space will be at the then current price. Any reduction in

There are no refunds for cancellations for the Roadshow. All cancellations must be made in writing to show management.
Cancellation of Table Space: Any exhibitor who has reserved a table and does not attend the show without notifying show management in writing a minimum of 60 days before the show will be charged the full, non-discounted fee for table space. Exhibitors who notify show management in writing of table cancellation 60 days prior to show week will receive full credit less deposit. All amounts forfeited are considered to be liquidated and agreed upon damages for injuries that Show will suffer as a result of Your cancellation. This provision for liquidated and agreed upon damages is a bona fide provision and not a penalty. The parties understand that the withdrawal of the space reserved from the availability at a time when other parties would be interested in applying for it will cause Show to sustain damages. In this situation, Show damages will be substantial, but they will not be capable of determination with mathematical precision. Therefore, the provisions for liquidated and agreed upon damages have been incorporated into this Agreement as a valid pre-estimate of these damages. The date of cancellation shall be the date Show receives the written notice. Regardless of when Your cancellation is received, You remain responsible for the full contract amount.
Listings and Promotional Materials: By exhibiting at the Show, You grant to Show or its affiliates a fully paid, perpetual non-exclusive license to use, display and reproduce Your name, trade names and product names in any directory (print, electronic or other media) listing Your Company at the Show and to use such name in Show or its affiliates promotional materials. Show shall not be liable for any errors in any listing or descriptions, or for omitting You from the show program or other lists or materials. Companies not current with payment to the Show or one of its affiliates will not be included in the show program.
Assumption of Risks; Releases: You expressly assume all risks associated with, resulting from or arising in connection with Your participation at the traveling show including, without limitation, all risks of theft, loss, harm, damage or injury to the person (including death), property, business or profits of exhibitor, whether caused by negligence, intentional act, accident, act of God or otherwise. You have sole responsibility for Your property or any theft, damage or other loss to such property (whether or not stored in any courtesy storage area), including any subrogation claims by Your insurer. Neither Show or the exhibit facility accepts responsibility, nor is a bailment created for property delivered by or to You. Neither Show or the exhibit facility shall be liable for, and You hereby release all of them from and covenants not to sue any of them with respect to any and all risks, losses, damages and liabilities described in this paragraph.
Indemnification: You shall indemnify, defend (with legal counsel
satisfactory to Show), and hold Show, its affiliates, and the exhibit
facility harmless from any claims, demands, suits, liabilities, damages, losses, costs, reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses which result from, or arise out of or in connection with: (a) Your participation or presence at the traveling show, (b) any breach by You of any agreements, covenants, promises or other obligations under this contract: (c) any matter for which You are otherwise responsible under the terms of this contract: (d) any violation or infringement (or claim of violation or infringement) of any law or ordinance or the rights of any party under any patent, copyright, trademark, trade secret, or other proprietary right: (e) any libel, slander, defamation or similar claims resulting from Your actions; (f) harm or injury (including death) to You; and (g) loss of or damage to Your property, Your business, or Your profits, whether caused by negligence, intentional act, accident, act of God, theft, mysterious disappearance or otherwise.
Cancellation by Show: If You fail to make a payment required by this contract in a timely manner, Show may terminate this contract (and Your participation in the show) without further notice and without obligation to refund monies previously paid. Show reserves the right to refuse You permission to move in and set up an exhibit if You are in arrears of a payment due to Show or one of its affiliates. Show is expressly authorized (but has no obligation) to occupy or dispose of any space vacated or made available by reason of action taken under this paragraph in such manner as it may deem best, and without releasing You from any liability hereunder. Show may also terminate this contract, effective upon written notice of termination, if You breach any of Your obligations under this contract, without any obligation on the part of Show to refund any payments previously made and without releasing You from any liability arising as a result of, or in connection with such breach.
Cancellation of the Show: If Show cancels the Roadshow due to
circumstances beyond its reasonable control (for example: acts of God,
acts of war, act of terrorism, earthquake, government emergency, or
government actions, labor actions or unavailability of the Exhibit Facility), Show shall refund to each Exhibitor its exhibit space rental payment previously paid, minus a share of costs and expenses incurred, in full satisfaction of all liabilities of Show to Exhibitor. Show reserves the right to cancel, re-name or relocate Show or change the dates of the Roadshow that are not more than 90 days earlier or 90 days later than the dates on which the Roadshow was originally scheduled to be held. If Show should take such action, no refund will be due to the Exhibitor, but Show shall assign to the Exhibitor, in lieu of the original space, such other space as Show deems appropriate and the Exhibitor agrees to use such space under the terms of this contract. If Show removes or restricts an exhibit which it considers objectionable or inappropriate, no refund will be due to the Exhibitor. If Show elects to cancel the Roadshow other than for such a reason previously described in this paragraph, Show shall refund to each Exhibitor its entire table space rental payment previously paid, in full satisfaction of all liabilities of Show to Exhibitor.

Additional Terms and Conditions: Show has sole control over attendance policies. Except as provided to the contrary in this contract, all monies paid by You shall be deemed fully earned and non-refundable at the time of payment. You shall conduct yourself at all times in accordance with normal standards of decorum and good taste. In addition to its right to close an exhibit and withdraw acceptance of the contract, Show, in its sole judgement, may refuse to consider You for participation in future Shows if You violate or fail to abide by the contract and any of the accompanying rules and regulations. Any amendment to this contract must be in writing and signed by an authorized representative of Show. You may not assign this contract or any right hereunder, nor may You sublet or license all or any portion of Your table space.
