Each time after the end of a year, the amount on which the interest is calculated is increased by the interest owed over that year. If the exhibitor is in default towards the organiser, he is obliged to fully reimburse the organiser for the extrajudicial and judicial costs. The extrajudicial costs to be reimbursed by the exhibitor will amount to at least 15% of the unpaid amount, with a minimum of € 200. This provision may also be invoked in the event that the organiser has sent or caused to be sent only one reminder, notice of default and/or demand for payment.

Article 12 - Liability of the Organiser

Article 13 - Liability of the Exhibitor

The exhibitor also indemnifies the organiser against all claims of third parties, under whatever heading, with regard to loss, theft or decrease in value of goods and/or damage and/or injury inflicted upon persons, which are connected with the exhibition.

Article 15 - Force majeure

In the event that the organiser is unable to meet its obligations towards the exhibitor due to a non-attributable failure, the fulfilment of those obligations will be suspended for the duration of the force majeure situation. Force majeure is in any case understood to mean any circumstance beyond the control of the organiser, as a result of which the fulfilment of its obligation towards the exhibitor is fully or partially impeded, or as a result of which the fulfilment of its obligations cannot reasonably be required from the organiser, regardless of whether the circumstances were foreseeable at the time of concluding the Agreement. Such circumstances will in any case include: states of emergency (such as extreme weather conditions, fire and lightning strikes), strikes, diseases, epidemics and pandemics, non-performance by suppliers on whom the organiser depends for the implementation of the Agreement (including the operator of the exhibition space and the stand construction company), break-ins, telecommunication malfunctions and/or in connection with any instruction by the competent authorities. If the force majeure situation lasts longer than thirteen months, both parties are entitled to dissolve the Agreement entirely or partially by registered letter, insofar as the force majeure situation justifies this.

Article 16 - Insurance

Materials of the exhibitor and third parties, as well as transport, delay, loss, theft, damage and depreciation thereof, personal injury and consequential damage are not covered by the insurance of the organiser and the organiser is not liable for this. The organiser explicitly advises the exhibitor to take out the necessary insurance himself.

Article 17 - Default / dissolution

If the exhibitor does not properly or timely comply with any obligation arising for him from the contract, he is without notice in default and the organiser is entitled to suspend the performance of the contract until compliance by the exhibitor is sufficiently guaranteed; and/or to terminate the contract partially or entirely without refunding certain invoices.

This applies to any party visibly present with a logo or other name statement and other presence in the broadest sense of the word. The organiser reserves the right to assess per party whether permission will be granted. This will be made known in writing in advance. If the exhibitor does not request permission from the organiser for participating parties in advance, the exhibitor risks having these parties removed from the stand.

Article 6. Right of withdrawal

6.1 This article shall apply only if Customer is a natural person not acting in the exercise of his profession or business. Business Customers are therefore not entitled to a right of withdrawal.

6.2 The Customer is entitled to cancel the remotely concluded Agreement with MASTERS HQ BV within the consideration period of fourteen (14) calendar days without giving any reason, unless the product is excluded from the right of withdrawal according to paragraph 11 of this article.

6.3 The Customer may exercise his right of withdrawal by sending MASTERS HQ BV an unequivocal statement within the withdrawal period. The Customer may use the model withdrawal form.

In the case of a Subscription, the cooling-off period starts the day after the Customer has received the first edition of the Magazine.

6.5 During the reflection period, Customer must treat what he has received under the Agreement with care. Customer shall only open the packaging and use the product insofar as this is necessary to inspect the nature, characteristics and operation of the products. The basic principle in this respect is that this inspection may not go any further than what the Customer would be able to do in a physical shop. In the event that Customer goes beyond what is necessary to assess the product during the inspection, Customer is responsible for the resulting reduction in value.

This is only different in case the Subscriber agrees to a proposal by MASTERS HQ BV to set off the value of the received magazine against the amount to be returned to the Subscriber according to the next paragraph.

6.9 Amounts already paid by Customer (in advance) will be refunded to Customer as soon as possible, but no later than fourteen (14) days after dissolution of the Agreement, in the same way as Customer paid for the order. Any shipping and payment costs paid by Customer will be refunded to Customer upon return of the entire order. If the Customer chooses a more expensive method of delivery than the cheapest standard delivery, MASTERS HQ BV is not obliged to refund the additional costs of the more expensive method. Unless MASTERS HQ BV offers to pick up the product itself, MASTERS HQ BV may delay repayment until MASTERS HQ BV has received the product or until the Customer demonstrates that he/she has returned the product, whichever is earlier.

6.10 The right of withdrawal does not apply to:

  1. (a) products which are delivered sealed for reasons of hygiene or health protection and of which

Customer has broken the seal after delivery;

  1. b) products manufactured in accordance with Customer's specifications (custom-made products);
  2. (c) the supply of single issues of a magazine;
  3. (d) the supply of products which spoil quickly or have a limited shelf life;
  4. e) the supply of audio and video recordings and computer software on physical media, the seals of which have been broken after delivery.

 

Article 7. Compensation and payment

7.1 Customer shall pay MASTERS HQ BV according to the payment method chosen in the order procedure. The available payment methods depend on the product or Subscription selected by Customer. MASTERS HQ BV is free in its choice of payment methods and these may change from time to time.

7.2 The Customer authorizes MASTERS HQ BV or a third party engaged by MASTERS HQ BV to collect the subscription fees by direct debit. The Customer shall ensure that the direct debit can be executed at the time of collection. Suspension of the collected amount shall in no case relieve the Customer from his payment duties towards MASTERS HQ BV.

7.5 If the Customer does not fulfill his payment obligations in time MASTERS HQ BV is entitled to suspend the execution of the Agreement until the Customer has fulfilled his payment obligations.

7.6 If the Customer fails to perform his duties on time, the Customer shall, after being notified by MASTERS HQ BV of the delay and MASTERS HQ BV has granted the Customer a term of fourteen (14) days to perform his duties, If the Customer fails to pay within this 14-day term, MASTERS HQ BV shall be liable for legal interest on the outstanding amount and MASTERS HQ BV shall be entitled to charge the Customer extrajudicial collection costs in accordance with the Besluit vergoeding buitengerechtelijke incassokosten (BIK) (Decree on Extrajudicial Collection Costs).

7.7 MASTERS HQ BV reserves the right to modify the Subscription fees for both existing Subscriptions and Subscriptions which have been tacitly renewed. MASTERS HQ BV may adjust subscription fees in accordance with the applicable consumer price index. In case of a price change within three (3) months after entering into the Agreement, the Customer shall be entitled to dissolve the Agreement.

 

Article 8. Guarantee and conformity

8.1 MASTERS HQ BV shall ensure that the products are in conformity with the Agreement, the specifications mentioned in the offer, the reasonable requirements of reliability and/or usefulness and the statutory provisions and/or government regulations in force at the time of the conclusion of the Agreement. If specifically agreed, MASTERS HQ BV shall also ensure that the product is suitable for other than normal use.

In the event of cancellation, the Organiser will not refund the participation fees already paid by the Exhibitor at the time of the cancellation. In the event of force majeure, the provisions of Article 15 apply and the Exhibitor cannot claim a refund of the participation fees already paid. The Organiser advises the Exhibitor to ensure that a cancellation clause is included in its own insurance policy. In case of cancellation, the Exhibitor's participation in the EXPO will be converted into a participation in MASTERS EXPO 2021.

 

Article 9 - Cancellation by the Exhibitor

The Exhibitor has the right to cancel his participation in the VERNISSAGE, giving specific reasons, unless otherwise agreed in writing. In this case, 125% of the total participation fee must be paid by the Exhibitor to the Organiser. The 125% cancellation fee represents the costs already incurred by the Organiser and the costs still to be incurred as a result of the cancellation. The cancellation fee must be paid immediately with a maximum payment period of 14 days.

 

Article 10 - Prices

All prices and other rates of the organiser are expressed in euros and are exclusive of turnover tax (VAT). The participation fee includes the costs of the stand space, the rental of the exhibition space and extras agreed upon in writing. The participation fee does not include other costs such as transport, loading, unloading and placing of the exhibitor's materials; travel and accommodation costs of the stand crew; extra furnishing of the stand with for instance furniture, showcases, decorations and extra lighting. The Organiser is entitled to pass on increases in cost price factors to the exhibitor by means of a tariff increase. If such a rate increase is passed on within one month after the conclusion of an agreement, the exhibitor is entitled to terminate the agreement with immediate effect.

 

Article 11 - Payment

Together with the written confirmation of participation, the exhibitor will receive a written confirmation of the payment arrangements made. The Exhibitor shall emphatically comply with the arrangements made. At the latest fourteen weeks before the EXPO, or as much earlier as stipulated by the organiser, the Exhibitor will receive an invoice or final partial invoice for the total participation sum. This invoice must be paid within fourteen days after the invoice date. In the event of registration less than fourteen weeks before the opening of the EXPO, the exhibitor will receive an invoice for the total participation sum together with the written confirmation of participation. The participation fee has to be paid by the exhibitor within five days, whereby the participation fee has to be credited on the account of the organiser within five days.

 

If the full entry fee is not credited to the organiser's account one month before the start of the EXCHANGE, 7 June 2021, payment of 125% of the entry fee is still required and participation will be excluded.

 

All amounts owed to the organiser must be paid without discount, deduction or settlement. Furthermore, the exhibitor is not entitled to suspend any payment obligation towards the organiser. The organiser is entitled to deny the exhibitor access to the VERNISSAGE until full payment has been made by the exhibitor. By expiry of the payment term, the exhibitor is automatically in default. Exhibitor shall owe default interest of 1% per month on all amounts not paid at the latest one month, 7 June 2021, before the start of the construction of the VERNISSAGE, as from that day, to be calculated until the day of full payment, whereby a part of the month shall be calculated as a full month. Each time after the end of a year, the amount on which the interest is calculated is increased by the interest owed over that year. If the exhibitor is in default towards the organiser, he is obliged to fully reimburse the organiser for the extrajudicial and judicial costs. The extrajudicial costs to be reimbursed by the exhibitor will amount to at least 15% of the unpaid amount, with a minimum of €200. This provision may also be invoked in the event that the organiser has sent or caused to be sent only one reminder, notice of default and/or demand for payment.

 

Article 12 - Liability of the Organiser

The organiser accepts no liability for damage resulting in any way from any action or omission by the organiser and/or its subordinates or supervised third parties during the construction, dismantling and running of the VERNISSAGE, or which is otherwise connected to the VERNISSAGE. The aforementioned includes in particular loss, theft or damage to materials belonging to the exhibitor or third parties; damage as a result of power cuts, power fluctuations and interruptions in heating and lighting; any injury suffered by the exhibitor or third parties within the framework of the EXCHANGE; consequential damage suffered by the exhibitor or third parties, including damage caused by delay, loss of profits, financial loss and intangible loss. Neither is the organiser liable for the content of the message which is spread by the exhibitor during the VERNISSAGE. In the unlikely event that the organiser is held liable, then the liability of the organiser towards the exhibitor is at all times limited to a maximum of ten percent of the amount of the agreed participation fee.

 

Article 13 - Liability of the Exhibitor

The exhibitor is liable for all damage which in any way results from any action or omission by the exhibitor and/or his subordinates or third parties under his supervision during the construction, dismantling and running of the EXHIBITION, or which is otherwise connected with the EXHIBITION. The aforementioned includes in particular damage caused to stand materials and/or injury caused to persons during the said period in the exhibition space.

If an Exhibitor shows signs of having a cold or has a fever of up to 38 degrees Celsius, the Organiser is entitled to refuse the Exhibitor without consultation or to remove him from the VERNISSAGE.

 

Article 14 - Indemnification

The exhibitor indemnifies the organiser against claims from third parties for whatever reason, including compensation for damage, costs or interest. More specifically, the exhibitor indemnifies the organiser against all claims of third parties regarding the use by the organiser of text and/or visual material provided by the exhibitor, including claims of third parties regarding (alleged infringement of) intellectual property rights and/or regulations regarding advertising. The exhibitor also indemnifies the organiser against all claims of third parties, under whatever title, with regard to loss, theft or decrease in value of goods and/or damage and/or injury inflicted upon persons, which are connected with the VERNISSAGE.

 

Article 15 - Force majeure

In the event that the organiser is unable to meet its obligations towards the exhibitor due to a non-attributable failure, the fulfilment of those obligations will be suspended. Force majeure is in any case understood to mean any circumstance beyond the control of the organiser, as a result of which the fulfilment of its obligation towards the exhibitor is wholly or partly impeded, or as a result of which the fulfilment of its obligation cannot reasonably be required from the organiser, regardless of whether the circumstances were foreseeable at the time of concluding the Agreement. Such circumstances will in any case include: states of emergency (such as extreme weather conditions, fire and lightning strikes), strikes, diseases, epidemics and pandemics, non-performance by suppliers on whom the organiser depends for the implementation of the Agreement (including the operator of the exhibition space and the stand construction company), break-ins, telecommunication malfunctions and/or in connection with any instruction by the competent authorities. If the force majeure situation lasts longer than thirteen months, both parties are entitled to dissolve the Agreement entirely or partially by registered letter, insofar as the force majeure situation justifies this.

Article 16 - Insurance

Materials of the exhibitor and third parties, as well as transport, delay, loss, theft, damage and depreciation thereof, personal injury and consequential damage are not covered by the insurance of the organiser and the organiser is not liable for this. The organiser explicitly advises the exhibitor to take out the necessary insurance himself.

 

Article 17 - Default / dissolution

If the exhibitor does not properly or timely comply with any obligation arising for him from the contract, he is without notice in default and the organiser is entitled to suspend the performance of the contract until compliance by the exhibitor is sufficiently guaranteed; and/or to terminate the contract partially or entirely without refunding certain invoices. In case of (provisional) suspension of payment, bankruptcy, shutdown or dissolution of the business of the exhibitor, the contract with the exhibitor will be dissolved by operation of law.

 

Article 18 - Partners at the stand

The exhibitor must request prior written permission from the organiser for participating parties on the stand, including partners and suppliers. This applies to any party visibly present with a logo or other name statement and other presence in the broadest sense of the word. The organiser reserves the right to assess per party whether permission will be granted. This will be made known in writing in advance. If the exhibitor does not request permission from the organiser for participating parties in advance, the exhibitor risks having these parties removed from the stand. The exhibitor also risks a fine of € 1500,- per party that has not been reported. Without written permission from the organiser, participation of third parties unknown to the organiser is not allowed at all.

 

Exhibitor must purchase all food and beverage at Hotel Okura Amsterdam.

 

 

 

 

Article 19 - Amendments and supplements

Changes and additions to any provisions in an agreement and/or conditions will only apply if they are recorded in writing by organiser and only relate to the agreement in question.

 

Article 20 - Transfer of rights

The organiser is at all times permitted to transfer the rights arising from the agreement to third parties. The exhibitor is only entitled to do so with the prior written permission of the organiser.

 

Article 21 - Applicable law and competent court

Dutch law applies to these terms and conditions and to the agreement. All disputes that arise as a result of an agreement or these terms and conditions will be settled by the competent court in Amsterdam, unless the law prescribes otherwise.
