Theft insurance will cover only instances of theft occurring outside opening hours; security over the plot and/or tent will be the responsibility of each exhibitor during opening hours. In order to be fully covered by this insurance policy, exhibitors must provide a full inventory of all products and equipment to be exhibited, together with the value thereof, before 30th April.

ART. 6. SAFETY REGULATIONS.-

6.1.- Fire Prevention. No fires allowed within the exhibition grounds. Disposal of waste fluids such as fuel, oil, etc. is strictly forbidden. Exhibitors carrying out machinery demonstrations must be equipped with fire extinguishers.

6.2.- Safety. The exhibition of any products which might pose a threat to the safety of visitors, staff or exhibitors is strictly forbidden. Any exhibitors wishing to carry out demonstrations must have the necessary safety systems in place for protection of the public. Exhibitors will be responsible for any harm or damages caused to visitors, the organisation or other exhibitors, especially within their own demonstration plot, due to fault or negligence. Exhibitors must have their own safety staff, and a liability insurance with a minimum cover of 150,253.03 Euros. For safety reasons, the tents (Jaimas) and electricity supply will be provided exclusively by the Asturforesta Organisation.

6.3.- Inspection. Asturforesta nevertheless reserves the right to inspect exhibitor stands and demonstration plots at any time, and to require exhibitors to either withdraw certain products or put in place any safety measures as the organisation may see fit.

ART. 7. ADMISSION AND PAYMENT.- The procedure to be followed by exhibitors for renting a plot and/or stand and any additional services will be as follows: An official application form will be issued by the fair organisation to all those interested in participating. The application must be duly filled in and sent back to the Organising Committee by 30 APRIL 2019. Once the organisation receives the application form, it will act as follows (Local Regulation NF 400):

A) Payment will be due once the application for rental of the relevant stand is approved. The application must specify a bank account number, from which payment will be taken. Failure to specify such bank account number on the application form will mean that the application will not be processed. Once the application is approved, the applicant will be informed and an invoice and payment request will be sent to the bank account specified by the applicant. Failure by the bank to release funds in payment of the relevant invoice and request will be taken to mean that the applicant no longer wishes to take part in the fair.

B) Once the plot and/or stand has been assigned and payment made, if the applicant were to withdraw from participating in the fair or was unable to attend for reasons pertaining to the applicant, a refund may be issued in the amounts specified in the mentioned Local Regulation NF 400.

C) If participation in the fair were to be cancelled for reasons NOT attributable to the exhibitor, a full refund of the amount paid will be given, subject to submission of the relevant documents supporting such non-participation.

ART. 8. TRANSFER OR SUBLETTING. Partial or total transfer or subletting of the stand and requested services to a company other than the registered participating company is strictly forbidden. Nevertheless, in the event of similar or complementary activities, ASTURFORESTA may, upon request of the registered party, authorise partial or total transfer of the contracted plot or stand.

 ART. 9. SETTING UP OF THE STAND. Participants may start setting up their stands from 08:00 onwards on 10 June 2019. Setting up times are from 08:00 to 22:00, and no materials or equipment will be allowed on site outwith these times.

 ART. 10. WITHDRAWAL OF PRODUCTS AND EQUIPMENT. Withdrawal of exhibition materials cannot be carried out before 21:00 on Saturday 22 June 2019. Breach of this condition will mean that the company in question will not be allowed to participate in subsequent editions of the fair.

 ART. 11. SECURITY SERVICES. The Organising Committee will provide security services from the moment setting up can first be started and until all plots and stands have been taken down, to ensure the safety of materials and items at the site. The cost of such security services will be borne by the organising committee. This service will provide security during times when the fair grounds are closed to the public, and it will be the responsibility of each exhibitor to guarantee the security of their own plot and/or tent during opening times. For the duration of the fair, and during opening times, security services will be available in common areas and for the purposes of maintaining law and order. The organising committee will likewise bear the cost of such services.

 ART. 12. TELEPHONE SERVICES. The Organising Committee will make available telephone and photocopy services for all exhibitors.
