Terms & Conditions

1. AGREEMENT TO CONDITIONS - These terms and conditions are to be a part of all exhibit space contracts. Texas Association of Assessing Officers (TAAO) reserves the right to interpret them as well as make final decisions on all points, rules and regulations.

2. APPLICATIONS AND ELIGIBILITY - All exhibitors must submit an application for exhibit space executed by an individual who has authority to act for the applicant (exhibitor) containing all information requested and payment. Products and services to be exhibited must be listed on this application. TAAO reserves the right to determine the eligibility of any company, product, or part thereof. TAAO reserves the absolute right to reject any such application that in its opinion is not in keeping with the character and purpose of the TAAO Annual Conference.

3. ASSIGNMENT OF SPACE - Assignment of space will be determined by TAAO based on the character of the proposed exhibit, individual exhibitor requirements, and the exhibitor’s preference as to location. Every effort is made to assign booths according to the order in which applications are received. Once space has been confirmed by TAAO, space will not be reassigned except in the event that the show is not sold in full and floor plan reconfiguration is necessary. Reassignment will occur only upon mutual agreement between TAAO and the exhibitor.

4. PAYMENT - Payment of all outstanding balances is due no later than July 13, 2018.

5. INSURANCE - Insurance of the exhibitor’s property, business interruption insurance, and the exhibitors’ protection and insurance against any other liability or loss must be provided by the exhibitor and be at the exhibitor’s sole expense.

6. INCLUDED ITEMS - Each 8’ x 10’ booth will be set with 10’ high back drape, 3’ high divider drape, one 6’ table skirted, two side chairs, one wastebasket and one 7" x 44" booth identification sign. Any other additional items that may be required, such as electric service, phone service, internet service or additional furniture, shall be rented by the exhibitor directly from the hotel/exhibit facility and are not included in the rental fee paid to TAAO. Shipment/receipt, storage, and the installation/ dismantling of displays shall also be at the sole expense of the exhibitor.

7. USE OF SPACE - Sub-leasing, co-participation or display of information by another corporation, firm, or its representatives in space assigned to the original application is prohibited without prior written consent from TAAO. The exhibitor must, at own expense, maintain and keep in good order the space in which the exhibitor has contracted.

8. PROTECTION OF EXHIBIT FACILITY - Exhibitors are subject to all conditions, requirements and instructions set forth by TAAO and the hotel/exhibit facility. Nothing shall be attached to columns, walls, floors, or other parts of the exhibit hall without permission from TAAO.

No installation or dismantling of exhibits may take place during show hours.

10. DEFAULT OCCUPANCY - Any exhibitor failing to occupy space contracted for is not relieved of the obligation to pay for such space at the full rental price. TAAO shall have the right to use such space as it sees fit, provided such booth space is not occupied by one hour prior to the official show opening. Space not occupied by that time may be reassigned or used for other purposes deemed appropriate by TAAO.

11.
