Terms and Conditions

 

From here within White Light Events (the Organiser) shall be referred to as WLE.

Stall holders shall be referred to as the Exhibitor.

 (1) Bookings

 1. Bookings are accepted on the basis of the description of products & services outlined on the booking form. Any deviation from the description must be with the approval and agreement of WLE. WLE reserves the right to ask the exhibitor to remove any items on display which have not been declared previously on the booking form or agreed with WLE prior to the Event.

2. Exhibition stands will be allocated by WLE in the interest of ensuring a well-balanced event and the requirements of any Covid 19 provision assessments.

3. Subletting or sharing a stand is not permitted unless with the approval and agreement of WLE at the time of booking: in the case of readers only 1 reader is permitted per reader stand: if an exhibitor requires a stand for retail & space for a reader then a reader/retail stand must be booked. The number of readers will be limited in the spirit of fairness to all.

4. WLE reserves the right to refuse any exhibitor without giving a reason.

5. Candles or any naked flames are not to be lit on any stand. The burning of incense is also prohibited.

6. No extensions or widening of stands is permitted – if a larger stand is required then this must be stated on the booking form: likewise, if a stand has a pull up display or banner then this must be declared at the time of booking. Charges may be made to the exhibitor if they go out of the paid for space.

7. No posters are to be attached to the fabric of the building by drawing pins, sticky tape or similar – blue tack is permitted with great care; any damage charged for by the venue will be passed on to the exhibitor. If in doubt, check with WLE staff.

8. Consideration should be given to fellow exhibitors and visitors in respect of playing music and stand display lighting.

9. WLE reserves the right to instruct an exhibitor to reposition their stand if upon inspection an issue is deemed possible with health and safety regulations or any Covid-19 requirements.

10. The exhibitor agrees to follow any Covid-19 rules and regulations, set out by the government, whilst within the event grounds at all times.

 

(2) Payments – Rolling Deposit Scheme

 

1. The price of the stand is outlined on the booking form for each event. An initial deposit of £50 for all exhibitors is required at the time of booking to secure a stand: deposits are non-refundable unless an event is cancelled by WLE. This deposit is a rolling deposit.

2. An invoice will be issued 8 weeks before each event and payment for that event must be made in full for the stand(s), and this is due no later than 6 weeks before each approaching event. Payment details will be on your invoice. Payment should be made by PayPal or BACS. Should you have reason to cancel your stand without the required 6 weeks’ notice then the deposit will be forfeited. Nonattendance at an event without payment will also need to be paid for in full if no cancellation has been made, in writing, with more than 6 week’s notice.

3. The deposit will then become the deposit for the next show booked. This will continue for all shows that are booked with us.

4. For the final event of the year you may use your deposit, or you may choose to roll your deposit forward to the following year.

5. 6 week’s notice must be given for cancellations. Stands cancelled with less than 6 weeks to go will still be required to be paid for in full.

6. If the event is cancelled due to covid-19 restrictions prior to an event and you have paid, then you will either be refunded, or your monies transferred to another event.

(3) Readers

 1. Reader stands are limited at each event; therefore, you must clearly state on your booking form if you wish to perform readings from your stand. If you do not state this on your booking form you will not be allowed to conduct readings on your stand.

2. Appropriate disclaimers are required to be on clear display at each reader stand.

3. WLE definition of Readers includes, but is not limited to: – Clairvoyants, mediums, psychics, Aura photographers, psychic artists, card readers.

4. No readings to any persons under the age of 18 will be permitted. If you are in doubt, please ask for proof of age.

5. WLE insist that all readers charge a minimum of £35 per reading. WLE are aware of readers that are charging small amounts for readings at events, and this is unfair to other readers. WLE want every reader to have a fair shot at earning at our events and we need to ensure there is a level playing field. WLE now require all readers to have a sign that clearly states their price on their table. If any reader is found to be offering readings at below the price of £35 then they will lose their place on WLE events.

6. If under Covid -19 rules, appointment sheets should not be handled by the public. You are welcome to have a sheet on your table, but it must clearly state that the public can not handle / fill in the sheet. Appointments must be made verbally or via text message to yourself. Reader then updates the appointment sheet yourself.

7. Readers are to follow any Covid-19 guidance set out for the beauty trade. Readers are in close contact with the public and therefore require the same level of PPE protection.

(4) Setting up & Closing down

 

(4.1) All Events

 

1. Set up details will be published within the exhibitor’s area on the WLE website. We will not email this information out.

If we need to change the details, times etc… then we will email all attending exhibitors.

2. When unloaded please move your vehicle away from the unloading area.

3. Be mindful of others around you when setting up. Do not block walkways with boxes, bags or trollies. Always ensure that others can pass you whilst keeping a social distance of 1mtr.

4. WLE reserves the right to ask you to move boxes etc… if walkways are blocked.

5. Stands must be ready by 9.45am of the opening day and all aisles must be clear, to enable the event to open at 10am. Failure to do so delays WLE final checks & puts the public at risk of accident.

6. No exhibitor is to clear away before the advertised end time of an event. There are a lot of exhibitors who respect this but there are also many that don't. It is unfair to exhibitors around you when you are clearing away, especially if there is somebody having a reading or therapy nearby. Visitors paying to enter an event expect to be able to purchase items up till the advertised time, which with WLE is always 5pm. When the show is being packed away a visitor feels like they have to rush, and they tend to leave the building. That leads to lost sales and is unfair to your fellow exhibitor. Moving around the exhibition hall with boxes, trolly’s, whilst the public is still in attendance invalidates the exhibitor’s public liability insurance.

7. Only bring your car to the loading doors when your stand is fully packed down and your ready to load out. Cars need to be moved from the doors as soon as possible.

 

(5) Insurances, Health & Safety, Security

1. It is the responsibility of every exhibitor & speaker to be aware of any current change in legislation that affects their activities & to comply with such legislation.

No responsibility will be accepted by WLE for claims made against any products, services or treatments, or for any loss or damage to exhibitor’s stock or equipment. Copies of current Insurance Certificates must be submitted to WLE once a booking form has been sent.

 

4. WLE make every effort to ensure that all venues are safe and secure overnight, but no responsibility will be accepted by us or the venue for exhibitors’ stock or equipment. It is the exhibitor’s responsibility to ensure that all monies, phones, card readers, laptops are removed from the venue overnight.

5. Readers, psychic mediums, psychic counsellors, psychic artists, aura photographers and spiritual therapists should have the appropriate professional indemnity insurance & appropriate disclaimer & send a copy of each with their bookings. It is also recommended that all readings be recorded for the professional care of the Visitor/Client & the Reader/Medium.

6. All exhibitors electrical equipment over 1 year old requires a PAT test certificate and be in good working condition. Please have the certificates to hand if WLE or venue staff asks to see them. WLE has the right to refuse the use of any electrical equipment which we see as not fit for use and would be a hazard to fellow exhibitors, visitors and the venues electrical system.

7. Exhibitors who require power must bring an extension lead (min 10mtr).
