Terms and Conditions and Disclaimer

Yaoi Expo Terms and Conditions for Exhibition Hall

If, in the judgment of Yaoi Expo, an exhibitor is operating contrary to the policies of the Association or the venue, Yaoi Expo may cancel the exhibitor’s space, and the exhibitor’s fee will be forfeited. Yaoi Expo reserves the right to change non rented spaces within the Yaoi Expo Exhibit Hall without notice to the exhibitors, vendors or artists.

  • Yaoi Expo will make every attempt to comply with requests for assignment of exhibit locations on a first-come, first-served basis. Location assignments will be made solely at the discretion of the Yaoi Expo Exhibit Hall manager. The Yaoi Expo Ex­hibit Hall manager reserves the right to reconfigure the show floor as it deems necessary in the best interest of the show or for logistical and safety reasons. This contract is for the use of the amount of space indicated and not for any specific location on the show floor.

  • There is no smoking allowed in the Yaoi Expo Exhibit Hall nor near any entrance to the facility, during the event, set-up, or tear-down.

  • Booths must be staffed during all show hours and until the official closing of the Yaoi Expo Exhibit Hall.

  • This contract provides for the use of exhibit space only. Furnishings (other than these included in the basic package), installation or removal labor, freight, drayage, phone, Internet access, and electric service are not included in these fees.

  • Each exhibitor is solely and fully responsible for its own material and should insure its exhibit against loss or damage from any cause whatsoever.

  • Exhibitors, vendors or artists must furnish Yaoi Expo with a list of items to be exhibited. Yaoi Expo reserves the right to accept or reject any exhibit that may detract from the general character of the display. Any food or beverage service from your exhibit booth must be coordinated with Yaoi Expo prior to the conference.

  • Display boards and other high exhibits must not be placed so as to interfere with other exhibits. Any construction in excess of 4’ in height must be kept within 3’ of the rear of the booth, and no construction can exceed 8’ in height. If your display exceeds these limits, contact Yaoi Expo, and an attempt will be made to locate your exhibit where it will not interfere with other booths.

  • If the operation of any equipment produces noise or odors annoying or inconvenient to exhibitors, vendors or artists or delegates, it will be necessary to discontinue such an operation. Sound may reach the immediate vicinity of the exhibitor’s area only, and it is urged that displays with sound be equipped with earphones.

  • All demonstrations, interviews, or other activities must be confined to the booth. Aisles must be kept clear, and exhibits must be arranged so that salespersons will be inside the rented space.

  • Exhibitors, vendors or artists may have drawings and award prizes or gifts in their own exhibit booths. There will be no exhibitor drawings or awarding of prizes at any conference function without prior approval from the Yaoi Expo Exhibit Hall manager.

  • Advertising and sales promotion materials may be distributed from booths only. No ma­terials may be left in public areas for distribution or placed on seats, attached to the walls, ceilings, and so forth of the venue.

  • No exhibitor or sponsor can exhibit or permit to be exhibited in the space allotted or as part of their sponsorship any company, organization, or products other than those specified in the application. Subletting or licensing of space or use of space not explic­itly authorized in writing by the Yaoi Expo Exhibit Hall manager is prohibited. Sharing of an exhibit by two or more companies is not permitted except as specifically arranged and approved by the Yaoi Expo Exhibit Hall manager in writing in advance.

  • Exhibitors, vendors or artists are asked to refrain from operating hospitality suites at times that conflict with events that are part of the official conference program. Hospitality functions should not encourage or permit alcohol abuse nor place emphasis on quantity and frequency of use of alcoholic beverages. Alternative beverages should always be avail­able. Hospitality suites must be open to all registered conference guests and Yaoi Expo staff.

  • Exhibits must comply with all union labor regulations. Rules and regulations for union labor are made by local unions and may be changed at any time.

  • Exhibitors, vendors or artists will be held responsible for any damage done to the venue property by the ex­hibitor or representatives of the exhibitor. No nails, tacks, screws, or other items can be driven into the walls or floor of the building.

  • A security officer will be on duty in the Yaoi Expo Exhibit Hall area while exhibits are closed. The officer’s presence does not constitute acceptance of any responsibility for se­curity of the exhibitors, vendors or artist’s products. Any items of value should be taken from the hall when booths are unattended. A Yaoi Expo staff member or volunteer member will be assigned to the entrance during the hours that the exhibit area is open.

  • Any grievances during the conference should be directed first to the Yaoi Expo Exhibit Hall manager.

Cancellation of Lease

Exhibitors, vendors, or artists will have the right to cancel this agreement at any time by written notice to Yaoi Expo, however refunds are subject to the following rules. In the event of such cancellation received up to 30 days prior to the Yaoi Expo Exhibit Hall, Yaoi Expo will refund the total booth space cost on cancellation notice. No refunds will be made on cancellations received after 4/01/2019.

Rules and Regulations

To ensure efficient and punctual set-up and tear-down, this show will conform to the rules and regulations formulated by the event and the venue. These rules specify exactly how an exhibitor may use the services of a firm other than the official contractor to install and dismantle exhibits in a show. Exhibitors, vendors or artists must notify the show manager at least 30 days in advance of the show that they will be using an outside contractor, supplying the name, address, and supervisor in attendance. Outside contractors must communicate to the show manager at least 30 days in advance of the show what exhibiting companies have requested work and whom the out­side contractor will employ. The contractor must supply appropriate insurance certificates.


Exhibitor assumes entire responsibility and hereby agrees to protect, indemnify, defend, and save Yaoi Expo and the venue and its employees and agents harmless against all claims, losses, and damages to persons or property, governmental charges or fines, and at­torney fees arising out of or caused by exhibitor’s installation, removal, maintenance, occu­pancy, or use of the exhibition premises or a part hereof, excluding any such liability caused by the sole negligence of the venue, its employees, and its agents.
