WYWF does not assume responsibility for any additional costs, charges, or expenses; to include, charges made for travel and lodging.
If the Festival organizers decide to postpone the August Physical Event due to Force Majeure, partners will still receive exposure via the Virtual events, and, if included in the original sponsorship agreement, the Kroger In-Store program. Sponsors will have the option to roll the agreed activation fees into the rescheduled in-person event in 2021 or receive a 30% refund on their activation fees and forego their activation at the rescheduled 2021 in-person event.

This Sponsorship Agreement may not be changed or modified, or any covenant or provision hereof waived, except by an agreement in writing.
11.4. Governing Law; Exclusive Jurisdiction. This Sponsorship Agreement will be construed in all respects in accordance with the laws of the State of California applicable to agreements entered into and to be wholly performed therein.

The award of the arbitrator will be final and binding and may be entered for judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction in Los Angeles County. Any dispute or portion thereof, or any claim for a particular form of relief (not otherwise precluded by any other provision of this Sponsorship Agreement), if any, that may not be arbitrated pursuant to applicable state or federal law may be heard only in a court of competent jurisdiction in Los Angeles County.

These Additional Terms and Conditions supplement the terms and conditions set forth in the exhibit space contract executed by Organizer. Any sponsorship opportunity contracted for by exhibitor in connection with the Festival is governed by the Sponsorship and Event Marketing Terms and Conditions.
1. ELIGIBLE EXHIBITS. Organizer reserves the right to determine whether any company or product is eligible for inclusion in the Festival. This determination may be made at any time before or after the start of the Festival. Exhibitor or its agent/agency must have no outstanding past due invoices with Organizer or its affiliates. Past due invoices billed to the exhibitor or its agent/agency must be paid before exhibitor will be allowed access to the Festival.
2. FLOOR PLAN. The floor plan for the Festival will be maintained as originally presented, wherever practicable. However, Organizer reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to modify the floor plan to the extent necessary for the best interests of the Festival, the exhibitors, and the industry. All measurements shown on the floor plan are approximate, and Organizer reserves the right to make such modifications as may be deemed necessary, making equitable adjustment for any exhibitor thereby affected.
3. EXHIBIT SPACE ASSIGNMENT. Space assignment will be indicated on the confirmation of acceptance of the exhibit space contract by Organizer. Exhibitor may have an opportunity to be placed on a Wait List for an alternative location on the Festival floor. All requests must be made through an Account Manager. Exhibitor must have space contracted and appropriate payment received to be moved in accordance with the Wait List request. Exhibitor must rent sufficient space to contain its exhibit completely within the confines of the booth lines. Equipment may not extend into the aisles, over the aisles, or across exhibitor’s purchased booth line. Heights and depths specified in applicable Exhibitor agreement must be observed. Organizer reserves the right to relocate exhibitor in comparable space for the best interest of the Festival. In the event of relocation, exhibitor will be advised in writing and given the option of selecting another location with an equivalent value. If for any reason, an alternative location cannot be provided, exhibitor’s sole and exclusive remedy shall be a refund of the unearned portion of the rental fee; provided, however, that Organizer’s liability for any error or failure to provide the exhibit space shall in no event exceed a refund of the amounts actually paid by exhibitor hereunder.
4. SHARING/SUBLETTING SPACE. Exhibitor shall not assign, sublet, subcontract or apportion the whole or any part of the space allotted, and may not share exhibit space or allow representatives, equipment, or materials from any subsidiary, division, or any other company or entity in exhibitor’s space without including the name(s) of such subsidiary, division or other company or entity on the exhibit space contract and obtaining the prior written consent of Organizer. Should exhibitor decide to cancel, the exhibit space reverts back to Organizer.
5. EXHIBITOR SHOW BOOK AND FESTIVAL POLICIES. A Festival Show Book containing detailed information will be available and provided to Exhibitor by TWE selected third party exhibition vendor. The Festival Show Book will contain, among other things, information regarding shipment, labor, electrical service, rental items and exhibit hours. All services, such as furniture, carpeting, labor, cleaning, storage of boxes and crates, shipping and other special services must be arranged through the official TWE exhibit services contractor. Exhibitor must abide by the regulations and guidelines included in the Festival Show Book. Organizer shall have sole control over the official Festival policies applicable to attendees, which will be available on the Festival website.
6. INSTALLATION AND DISMANTLING OF EXHIBITS. Delivery of freight and installation of exhibits will take place on the dates and at the times specified on your Eventival Visitor Page portal. Organizer reserves the right to resell the exhibit space if the exhibitor booth is not set up by the date and time specified in the Eventival Visitor Page preceding Festival floor opening. Organizer reserves the right to have the official exhibit services contractor install the exhibit or remove unopened freight at the expense of the exhibitor. Exhibitor accepts full and sole responsibility for any injury or damage to persons or property resulting from failure to distribute the placement of its exhibit material in accordance with the floor loading specifications. Dismantling may not begin until the close of the Festival on the final day of the Festival. Goods and materials used in any display shall not be removed from the festival grounds until the Festival has officially closed. Any exception to this rule must have the written approval of Organizer. Dismantling must be completed and all exhibit materials removed by the final move-out date and hour set forth in the Festival Show Book. Exhibitor is advised to remove small, portable items immediately upon conclusion of the Festival.
7. DISPLAYS AND ATTIRE. It is exhibitor’s responsibility to create an attractive display area that is in good taste (as determined by Organizer) and enhances the overall appearance of the Festival and is a credit to the industry. Organizer reserves the right to approve the character of the display and to prohibit any display which, because of noise or other objectionable features, detracts from the general character of the Festival. Any part of an exhibit space which does not reflect the purpose of the Festival must be corrected at the exhibitor’s expense. Organizer reserves the unilateral right to correct any unsightly exhibit, and exhibitor agrees to pay for expenses incurred in making the necessary alterations. If corrections cannot be made, the exhibit shall be removed at exhibitor’s cost, with no liability accruing to Organizer.
Exhibit Design. All booth furnishings, including audio and video, should be appropriate for a general audience and should not be offensive or violate common decency. In the event of a complaint about a booth’s content, Organizer will investigate. If content is determined to be offensive or inappropriate, the exhibitor must cease use of such content.
Attire. Organizer reserves the right to determine appropriate exhibitor/presenter attire and manner. Exhibitors and their personnel should present a professional image and appearance. If for any reason the attire of exhibitor’s personnel is deemed inappropriate by Organizer, the exhibitor may be asked to make suitable changes to the attire of its employees, exhibit staff and/or models. If necessary, the exhibitor may be asked to remove individual(s) wearing the inappropriate attire in question at exhibitor’s sole expense. Exhibitors with questions about compliance with these guidelines should consult Organizer in advance of the Festival.
8. DEMONSTRATIONS. Exhibitor shall observe the “good neighbor” policy at all times and not intrude upon or disrupt other exhibitors while they are conducting business on the Festival floor. Exhibits should be conducted in a manner not objectionable or offensive to neighboring booths. All demonstrations and the use of photographers, musicians, entertainers, loud speakers, sound system equipment and noise-making devices must be restricted to within the exhibitor’s booth, unless it has express prior written authorization. Entertaining attendees in booths must be arranged so that exhibitor’s personnel and attendees do not block aisles or overlap into neighboring exhibits. Operation of any equipment for demonstration purposes must be pre-approved in writing by Organizer. Organizer reserves the right to determine when any demonstrations become objectionable or interfere with adjacent exhibit spaces and may, if necessary, require that they be discontinued.
9. SOUND. Disruption or noise level from any demonstration or sound system must be kept to a minimum and may not interfere with others. The use of devices for mechanical reproduction of sound or music is permitted (up to 85 decibels), but must be controlled and not be projected outside the confines of the exhibit booth. No noise makers or anything not in keeping with the character and high standards of the Festival may be distributed or used by exhibitor in the exhibit area. Organizer reserves the right to determine at what point a disruption or sound level constitutes interference with other exhibits and must be discontinued.
10. PHOTOS AND VIDEOS. Exhibitor may take photos or videos of its displays; however, exhibitor is not permitted to directly take pictures of any other display or instruct others to take such pictures without written permission of Organizer and the exhibitor whose display is being photographed. Notwithstanding the foregoing, exhibitor authorizes Organizer and its Representatives (as defined in Section 19 below) to photograph and/or record all or any part of the Festival (including, without limitation, exhibitor’s exhibit space and personnel), and exhibitor hereby grants Organizer the worldwide, perpetual, royalty free right and license to reproduce, distribute, transmit, publicly perform and publicly display all such photographs and recordings (and any derivative works thereof) in any medium (now existing or hereafter developed).
11. SAMPLES, PUBLICATIONS, PRIZES, LIST ACCESS. Samples, giveaways, catalogues, pamphlets, souvenirs, industry publications and printed matter or promotional material of any kind may be distributed by exhibitor and its representatives (including hosts and hostesses) only within the confines of its booth, with the exception only of designated sponsorships and marketing opportunities for which exhibitor has contracted with Organizer. Exhibitor may not conduct any prize drawings or awards for signing of names and addresses without the prior written approval of Organizer. Organizer reserves the right to limit access to lists of attendees and exhibitors and any other list or information gathered by Organizer or its contractors.
12. ORDERS. No direct/retail selling is permitted on the Festival floor. Attendees may place orders with exhibitors for products/services at the Festival, but the product or service ordered/purchased must be delivered to the attendee after the close of the Festival. No soliciting of attendees shall be permitted in the aisles or in other exhibitors’ booths. Signs showing the prices of items must not be displayed.
13. FOOD AND BEVERAGES. Food and/or beverages may only be supplied by exhibitor with the prior written consent of Organizer and the Festival facility.
14. EXHIBITOR REPRESENTATIVE. Exhibitor must name at least one person (including hotel and local phone number) to be its representative with primary responsibility on the floor for the exhibitor’s display (including installation, operation and removal of the exhibit). Such representative shall be authorized to make decisions and enter into service contracts that may be necessary (or as requested by Organizer onsite or in the case of an emergency) and for which the exhibitor shall be responsible.
15. EXHIBITOR PERSONNEL. Exhibitor will furnish Organizer, in advance, the names of those persons who will staff the booth. Representatives manning the exhibit will be owners, employees or agents of exhibitor, and such representatives will wear proper badge identification furnished by Organizer. Supplying personnel badges to current or prospective customers by exhibitor is expressly forbidden. If such use of exhibitors’ badges is made, individuals wearing the badges will be removed from the premises and the badges will be confiscated.
16. DISPLAYS AND EXHIBITS OUTSIDE FESTIVAL. Exhibitor agrees that, outside of its own designated exhibit space at the Festival in accordance with the Agreement, it will not (nor will it permit its agents or distributors to) conduct any display or exhibit or distribute publications or any product bearing its trademark within a three mile radius of the Festival or the Festival’s officially designated hotels during the dates of the Festival. This limitation does not apply to participation in other trade association exhibitions which may coincidentally be ongoing in the same city or to exhibitor’s regular place of business or Festival room. Violation of this provision by exhibitor will constitute a material breach of the Agreement, and Organizer may, in its sole discretion, cancel the Agreement. Upon cancellation, exhibitor will remove its display and any equipment contained on the festival grounds and forfeit all payments made pursuant to the Agreement.
17. SOCIAL FUNCTIONS/SPECIAL EVENTS. Hospitality functions (including meetings, unless approved by Organizer) are not permitted during Festival hours or Festival sponsored events. Any social function or special event during the dates of the Festival in the host city is reserved for exhibiting companies and must be approved by Organizer.
18. COMPLIANCE WITH LAWS/STANDARDS. Exhibitor shall comply with all federal, state, and local laws, rules, standards, regulations and ordinances (“Laws”), including but not limited to copyright laws, the Americans with Disabilities Act (if applicable), and all Laws pertaining to business licenses, health, fire prevention and public safety, and all Organizer and Festival facility rules and regulations. Exhibitor shall be solely responsible for obtaining any necessary tax identification numbers and any licenses, permits or approvals required under any Law and for paying all taxes (including all sales taxes), license fees, use fees, or other fees, charges, levies or penalties that may become due to any governmental authority in connection with its participation in the Festival. All amounts due from exhibitor to Organizer are exclusive of VAT or other similar taxes, which amounts shall be invoiced to and borne exclusively by exhibitor. Subject to applicable Laws, all amounts due from exhibitor to Organizer shall be paid in full in U.S. dollars (unless a different currency is specified on the exhibit space contract) without reduction for withholding or other taxes, deductions or offsets of any kind. If applicable, (i) exhibitor shall pay the cost of conversion to U.S. dollars, and (ii) any required withholdings or taxes will be paid by exhibitor to the appropriate third party. Exhibitor must comply with union work rules if union labor will be made available. If Organizer becomes aware of exhibitor’s failure to comply with any applicable Law, such failure to comply shall be cause for rejection or removal of exhibitor and its exhibit from the Festival. All property of exhibitor is understood to remain in exhibitor’s possession, custody and control in transit to, from, or within the confines of the festival grounds, and is subject to the rules and regulations of the Festival.
Fire & Safety Laws. Federal, state and local fire and safety Laws must be strictly observed. Flammable or hazardous fluids, substances, or materials of any nature are prohibited in the booth and in the storage area behind the booth. No decorations of paper, pine boughs, leafy decorations, tree branches or other flammable materials are allowed. All decorative materials, including cloth decorations, must be flame-proofed and comply with local fire regulations. Transferring of flammable liquids while in the festival grounds is expressly prohibited. Electrical equipment and wiring must comply with fire department and underwriter rules and meet all safety codes. Smoking at the Festival is forbidden. Crowding will be restricted. Aisles and fire exits cannot be blocked by exhibits.

Exhibitor will not be permitted entry to the Festival unless full payment has been made of all outstanding past due invoices billed to exhibitor or its agent/agency. Any default by exhibitor under this Agreement shall constitute a default under any and all other agreements between Organizer and exhibitor including, but not limited to, all contracts relating to the Festival (e.g., sponsorship and event marketing contracts and other fee-based or barter activities; each an “Ancillary Contract”). In such event, Organizer, in its sole discretion, shall be entitled to apply any amounts deposited or paid by exhibitor under any Ancillary Contract to amounts due under this Agreement. If application of any such amount causes a default under an Ancillary Contract, Organizer shall be entitled to such remedies as may be provided in such Ancillary Contract. Similarly, any default under any Ancillary Contract shall constitute a default hereunder and shall entitle Organizer to its remedies hereunder. Exhibitor will be responsible for all expenses (including reasonable legal fees) incurred by Organizer in collecting amounts past due.

Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior or perceived harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately. Exhibitors in the expo hall, sponsor or vendor booths, or similar activities are also subject to the anti-harassment policy.
In particular, exhibitors should not use sexualized images, activities, or other material. Booth staff (including volunteers) should not use sexualized clothing/uniforms, or otherwise create a sexualized environment.

Our store collects data to operate effectively and provide you the best experiences with our services. You provide some of this data directly, such as when you create a personal account. We get some of it by recording how you interact with our services by, for example, using technologies like cookies, and receiving error reports or usage data from software running on your device. We also obtain data from third parties (including other companies). For example, we supplement the data we collect by purchasing demographic data from other companies. We also use services from other companies to help us determine a location based on your IP address in order to customize certain services to your location. The data we collect depends on the services and features you use.
Our web site uses the data we collect for three basic purposes: to operate our business and provide (including improving and personalizing) the services we offer, to send communications, including promotional communications, and to display advertising. In carrying out these purposes, we combine data we collect through the various web site services you use to give you a more seamless, consistent and personalized experience.

For example, companies we’ve hired to provide customer service support or assist in protecting and securing our systems and services may need access to personal data in order to provide those functions. In such cases, these companies must abide by our data privacy and security requirements and are not allowed to use personal data they receive from us for any other purpose. We may also disclose personal data as part of a corporate transaction such as a merger or sale of assets.
