If residual claims persist, they must be settled before the start-up, whereby a fee of 7.5% of the invoice amount is payable on-site.

The allocated booth space, including aisle space, must be strictly adhered to. Aisles and emergency exits must be kept clear at any time. The tables provided by the organisers are stable tables.
