The signed reservation form and this Agreement constitute a contract between Exhibitor and IPCS. This Agreement governs the space(s) licensed by Exhibitor at the Event, according to the number designated on the reservation form. Spaces are partitioned into approximately ten-foot square (10’ x 10’) blocks, with a maximum of four blocks allocated to any single exhibitor. Spaces are reserved on a first come, first serve basis, and IPCS will use reasonable efforts to assign Exhibitor a booth apart from its designated competitors. Notwithstanding the foregoing, booth spaces will be assigned to locations at the Event in the sole discretion of IPCS reserves the right to change Exhibitor’s assigned location at any time for any reason whatsoever. IPCS does not guarantee Event attendance numbers, foot traffic to Exhibitor’s booth space, or revenue to Exhibitor. The reservation form must be completed in its entirety and accompanied by the total booth fee for the number of spaces requested before it will be processed, or space assigned. Booth space unclaimed by the end of the opening hour is subject to reassignment.
The content and materials displayed at the Event must relate or contribute to the permanent makeup industry, and the professional development of attendees. IPCS reserves the right to refuse any application for exhibit space or curtail or cancel any exhibit that in its sole judgment are not consistent with the advancement of the permanent makeup industry and professional development of permanent makeup artists.

Booth spaces cannot be used for politically or ideologically partisan purposes and are subject to the approval of the Event executive director or its designee. IPCS further reserves the right to decline, prohibit, or expel any exhibit, exhibitor, or attendee which in its judgment is out of keeping with the theme, character, and general well-being of the Event, this reservation being all inclusive as to person, companies, things, printed matter, product, conduct, etc.
Exhibitor may cancel or downsize its booth space subject to the following conditions and restrictions. Refunds will be made according to the following schedule:
Cancellations must be made, in writing to IPCS. Exhibitor recognizes and agrees that the success of Event depends on commitment from exhibitors, and IPCS will sustain losses if Exhibitor fails to provide timely written notice of cancellation. Because such losses cannot be precisely measured but include the costs associated with the inability to replace a canceling exhibitor, advertising, credibility, redesigning of floor space, and the like, Exhibitor agrees that unrefunded portions of the booth space fee are in the nature of liquidated damages which are specifically designed to compensate IPCS for losses and do not constitute a penalty.
All Exhibitor personnel staffing exhibit booths will be required to register for general admission to the Event. The fee for booth space includes four (4) general admissions to the Event for the first block, and an additional two (2) general admissions for each additional block, up to a total of six (6) general admissions if the maximum booth space is rented. Badges must be worn at all times for admission to the Event. A list of Exhibitor’s personnel must be received on or before June 1, 2020.
