Terms and Conditions »

Public Liability Insurance

Partner and Sponsors are required to ensure that they are adequately covered for public liability insurance. This refers to damage or injury caused to third parties/visitors on or in the vicinity of an exhibition stand (where applicable). The Partner or Sponsor must take out adequate insurance in respect of all such claims.

The Organisers accept no liability for damage to exhibits by loss, damage, theft, fire, water, storms, strikes, riots or any cause whatsoever. Partners and Sponsors are advised to insure against such liability.

The Partner or Sponsor is responsible for all personal injury or damage to property arising in connection with the display area, howsoever caused. 

The Organisers reserve the right to change the venue and duration if exceptional circumstances demand. In the event of a change of venue and/or duration, the agreement to participate will remain in force so long as the Partners and Sponsors are informed at least one month before the changes.

For any sponsorship presence to be valid at the conference, all monies must be paid in full prior to the commencement of the event.

The Organisers will attempt to provide the best possible booth position where applicable, however they reserve the right to move booth positions in extreme cases provided the Partners and Sponsors concerned are informed at least one month prior to the event.

If deadlines are not adhered to with regard to supply of logos, profiles, artwork, etc., the Organiser reserves the right to proceed without said items.

Professional Courtesy

The Organisers of the Directions Events Series aim to ensure all Partner and Sponsors enjoy a rewarding experience. To this end, Partners and Sponsors are expected to conduct themselves in a fair, reasonable and respectful manner. For this reason, use of PA or AV systems must be approved by the event Organiser and all promotional activities are to be limited to each Partner and Sponsor's allocated area unless otherwise assigned.

Participation as a Partner or Sponsor is at the discretion of Esri Australia.

If your selected package is resold, a cancellation fee of 25% applies and a refund of any monies owed (less the 25%) will be forwarded after the Conference. Only once all other trade booths are sold is the resale option available. If the item cannot be resold you are liable for full payment.
