Partners & Sponsors Terms and Conditions

PAYMENT CONDITIONS

An invoice from the Scale Organisation will be sent to the Partner.

General terms payment: 14 natural days from the invoice date

Updated Sponsorship rates available on the event dubai.scalerentals.show/partners-instructions. 

Payments are to be made in one single settlement, either by payment link, bank transfer or credit card (please ask the organisation). Split payments or postponed payments will not be permitted. 

The “sponsor package” is only confirmed when the Scale Organisation receives the full payment. To this end, the organisation may require additional documents crediting the payment of the requested amount.

Once payment has been received, the Partner will be entitled to choose their preferred booth space. 

INCLUSIONS

Partners are informed that all individual package inclusions are defined in our ‘Partnership and Sponsorship Opportunities’ document, available on the event website dubai.scalerentals.show/partners-instructions. 

The Partner must strictly adhere to the document mentioned above and pay particular attention to the duration of the event or events, and the number of exhibitor tickets included (including speakers).

Additional tickets may be purchased, following strict availability rules. Rates and further details are available on the event website dubai.scalerentals.show/partners-instructions. 

CANCELLATION & REFUND POLICY

The organisation will allow cancellations or changes to the sponsorship package previously booked, strictly under the following conditions:

Cancellation by Partner

If the sponsor wishes to cancel the present Agreement, up to 60 days before the event starts, the organisation will refund 50% of the amount paid by the sponsor (including VAT). This forfeits the sponsorship package as well as any other direct and indirect right connected to it (e.g. conference access, speaking opportunities, brand promotion).

For any cancellation made less than 30 days before the event starts, the organisation will retain the full amount paid by the sponsor (including VAT).

Cancellation or Postponement by the Organiser

The organiser reserves the right to change the schedule, postpone or cancel the event. In the event of a decision to postpone the event, the organisers will immediately contact the sponsor with the new date and will agree with the sponsor that the organiser should hold the sponsorship money against a future event.

The organisers reserve the right to relocate the event to another venue without changing the terms of sponsorship.

The sponsor does not have the authority to demand cancellation or schedule changes to the event.

In the event of cancellation with no new date rescheduled, the organisers will return sponsorship money in full.

If the event attracts fewer delegates than anticipated by the organisers, no refund will be given. 

Similarly, if the event attracts more delegates than anticipated by either the organisers or the sponsor, there will be no additional charge incurred by the sponsor.

INDEMNITY

The sponsor will indemnify, defend, and hold the organiser harmless from and against any claims relating directly or indirectly to or arising out of, content posted on the sponsor’s respective website, use of sponsor materials, or use of sponsor’s logos and trademarks.

The organiser will not be responsible for damage to or loss of property belonging to the sponsor, its employees, contractors, or agents or for personal injury to the sponsor’s employees, contractors, agents, directors, or invitees except to the extent that claims may be solely and directly attributed to wilful misconduct or gross negligence of the organiser and organiser’s employers, directors, or officers.

All items or property that are brought to, displayed at, and removed from, the event venue is at the sponsor’s own risk.

The sponsor shall take out and maintain at all times public liability and employee liability insurance against personal injury or death.

In no event shall either party be liable to the other party for any consequential, incidental, indirect, or punitive damages regardless of whether such liability results from a breach of contract, breach of warranties, tort, strict liability, or otherwise.

EXHIBITOR AREA

The Sponsor will be allowed to choose an exhibitor space from those available as described in our “Booth Setup” document, available on the event website dubai.scalerentals.show/partners-instructions.
