Force Majeure

It may be necessary for reasons beyond our reasonable control to alter the advertised content, timing and/or location of the conference or the advertised speakers. We reserve the right to make changes at any time. 

Where we alter the time and/or location of the conference, we will provide delegates with written notice and offer you the choice of either a credit for a future event of your choice (up to the value of sums paid by you in respect of the conference) or the opportunity to attend the conference as revised.

Notwithstanding the previous paragraph, Benchmark may terminate this agreement for any reason upon providing notice of such termination to Delegate. Additionally, Benchmark may terminate this Agreement if Benchmark deems Delegates conduct to reflect poorly on Benchmark.

If the performance by either party of any non-monetary obligation under this Agreement is delayed or prevented in whole or in part by any cause not reasonably within its control Benchmark will treat every situation on a case by case basis.



Delegates and their vendors and sub-contractors each agree to obtain and maintain appropriate commercial liability insurance for the Event to cover equipment, staff and any damage or injuries that may occur involving Delegates exhibits and property.
