Exhibitor hereby covenants, agrees and undertakes to defend, indemnify and hold harmless, Conference Organizer, the Conference Venue and their respective officers, staff, volunteers, representatives and agents of each of these entities from, against and with respect to any and all special, indirect, incidental, or consequential loss or damage, costs, liabilities, claims, damages, and expenses (including, without limitation, reasonable legal fees and disbursements) directly or indirectly including but not limited to personal injury, death, property damage or any other damage or injury to any of the persons or property of Exhibitor, resulting from any theft, robbery, fire, accidents, loss or damage from any cause whatsoever, that may occur to Exhibitor or to Exhibitor’s employees, invitees, licensees, or guests, or their property.

Exhibitor acknowledges that the risk allocations of this Section are reasonable based on the understanding that Exhibitor shall obtain, at its own expense, adequate insurance against any such injury, loss, or damage. Conference Organizer shall not be liable for failure to perform its obligations under this Agreement as a result of strikes, riots, acts of God, or any other cause beyond its control. Anyone visiting, viewing, or otherwise participating in Exhibitor’s exhibit space is deemed to be the invitee, licensee, or guest of Exhibitor, and not the invitee, licensee, or guest of Conference Organizer. Exhibitor assumes full responsibility and liability for the actions of its agents, employees, independent contractors, or representatives, whether acting within or without the scope of their authority. Exhibitor acknowledges that neither the Conference Organizer nor the venue which the conference takes place maintains insurance covering Exhibitor’s property and that it is the sole responsibility of the Exhibitor to obtain business interruption and property damage insurance covering such losses by the Exhibitor.


Exhibitor is required to obtain comprehensive Commercial General Liability and Property insurance coverage commencing on the first move-in date and terminating on the last move-out date for its own exhibit, personnel, display and materials from any bodily injury, death or property damage or loss through theft, fire, accident or other cause and personal injury to others and accepts all risks associated with the use of the exhibit space and its environs. Such insurance shall also provide coverage for Exhibitor’s contractual obligations to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless, as stated in this Agreement. The Exhibitor agrees to have insurance naming Conference Organizer (DigiMarCon, LLC) and the Conference Venue (‘Royal Caribbean International’ as additional named insured (with no limitations) for comprehensive general liability coverage of not less than $1,000,000 for each separate occurrence/$2,000,000 aggregate coverage (for personal injury and property damage), and for theft and fire insurance for all property brought into or used in the Exhibition Hall. The Exhibitor must provide to the Conference Organizer prior to commencing its Exhibit Installation a copy of its public liability insurance certificate. At the request of the Conference Organizer, Exhibitor agrees to provide Conference Organizer a suitable certificate verifying that the required insurance is and will remain in force for the duration of the Exhibition. Exhibitor shall indemnify and defend Conference Organizer for any claim where Exhibitor failed to acquire or provide the requested insurance coverage.

The Exhibitor shall not make any claim or demand or take any legal action, whatsoever, against Conference Organizer, it parent corporation, subsidiaries, all affiliated companies, and/or the Conference Sponsors, for any loss, damage or injury howsoever caused, to the Exhibitor, its officers, directors, agents, representatives, and employees or their respective property.

Code of Conduct

The Conference Organizer reserves the right to regulate any activity on the part of any Exhibitor that may cause annoyance to other exhibitors or visitors to the Event. This includes excessive noise from working exhibits or sound equipment. Harassment of attendees or other exhibitors will result in dismissal of the Exhibitor from the Conference, closure of the exhibitor’s display and possible forfeiture of exhibitor’s ability to attend future Conference Organizer events.

Exhibitors shall be responsible for maintaining reasonable and appropriate noise levels as solely determined by the Conference Organizer so as not to interfere with the normal display and conversation of other exhibitors. Conference Organizer reserves the right to restrict exhibits which because of noise, method of operation or any other reason become objectionable. Exhibits, which in the opinion of Conference Organizer, detract from the general character of the Exhibition Hall as a whole will be prohibited. This reservation includes persons, things, conduct, printed matter or anything of a character that Conference Organizer determines is objectionable. In the event of eviction, Conference Organizer is not liable for refunds.
