Terms & Conditions
By submitting a completed Showcase Booking Form, you agree to be bound by these Terms & Conditions. Your attention is drawn to the provisions limiting or excluding our liability or providing for you to indemnify us which are highlighted in bold text in these Terms and Conditions.
In these Terms & Conditions, the term ‘Exhibitor’ or ‘you’ shall mean the person, firm or company named as such on the Showcase Booking Form and shall be deemed to include all employees, agents or representatives of such person, firm or company. The term “Showcase” shall mean any showcase event organised by Wedding Maker UK. “WMUK” shall mean Wedding Maker UK.
Application/Request to Exhibit
A Showcase Booking Form must be completed online via the WMUK website. WMUK reserve the right to accept or refuse any application for a booking without giving any reason. The Exhibitor is solely responsible for completing the Showcase Booking Form accurately and the Exhibitor warrants that the information entered by the Exhibitor into the Showcase Booking Form is true and correct.
A deposit as specified in the Showcase Booking Form must be paid at the time of booking (within 24 hours of submitting the Showcase Booking Form). However your booking will not be confirmed until we have received your completed online Showcase Booking Form and received either a deposit (or full payment if the Event is within one calendar month of the date of booking) and we have confirmed our acceptance of your booking in writing (which for this purpose shall include e-mail). The deposit is non-refundable unless we decline to accept your booking or you cancel the booking in accordance with the cancellation provisions set out below. Any balance payments must be made within the terms specified and no later than the date shown on our invoice. Failure to settle balance payments by the requested date will allow the Organiser to cancel your booking in its sole discretion and the Organiser will not be required to refund any deposit (including any full payment or balancing payment).
You may cancel a booking within 7 days of making said booking without charge (i.e. the Organiser receiving a completed Showcase Booking Form and the relevant payment) provided that your cancellation request is not made within 7 days of the relevant Event ‘Cancellation Period’. Any cancellation request must be notified by email with proof of delivery.
WMUK may cancel any booking at any given time without giving a reason and in such case the Exhibitor’s payment will be refunded to the Exhibitor in full.
Should WMUK need to cancel an Event due to circumstances beyond their control, then the Organiser shall issue a refund to the exhibitor.
WMUK accepts no responsibility for any costs incurred by the Exhibitor for staffing, travel, printing or any other related preparation expenses, if the Event does not take place for any reason.
Allocation of Exhibitor Space(s)
Stand space(s) will be allocated and although every effort will be made to accommodate an Exhibitors request(s) this cannot be guaranteed and WMUK reserves the right to assign space as they see beneficial to the Event, taking into consideration all other Exhibitors and their requirements, but particularly the impact any requests may make on the overall Event. By submitting an online Showcase Booking Form you are agreeing to a contract between the WMUK and you the Exhibitor, bound by these Terms & Conditions.
If an Exhibitor is not present at the Event within 15 minutes of the Event opening time, their space will be allocated to either neighbouring Exhibitors, or by an Exhibitor that WMUK selects to move from their existing space.
Exhibitors may only promote their own business as detailed on the Showcase Booking Form.
