If Exhibitor is a “no show” without prior written notice to PBIDI, Exhibitor will forfeit all fees paid to PBIDI.
SYMPOSIUM CANCELLATION POLICY
In the event that the ID Symposium 2012: Progress and Controversies in Infectious Disease is abbreviated or canceled because of circumstances beyond PBIDI’s control, including, but not limited to, civil disturbance, earthquake, electrical outage, explosion, fire, freight embargo, strike or labor unrest, flood, hurricane, tornado or other acts of God, an act of war, terrorism, or any other causes that would prevent PBIDI from continuing the meeting, PBIDI reserves the right, at PBIDI’s sole discretion, to unilaterally terminate the agreement between PBIDI and the exhibitor. In these circumstances, the exhibitor expressly agrees to waive any claim the exhibitor/sponsor may have against PBIDI, including, but not limited to, those for fees paid by, or on behalf of, the exhibitor for booth spaces, registration, breakfast symposia, advertising, promotional opportunities, food and beverage, grants, audiovisual services, signage, housing, and travel. After considering expenses and obligations incurred by PBIDI up to the time of the symposium cancellation, PBIDI will issue a partial refund to sponsoring companies.
