RMG reserves the right to rearrange the layout of unoccupied areas, and to alter entrances and exits to and from the exhibition space, halls, cafe and aisles. Exhibitor may not display art or position tables, chairs or other furniture outside its booth. In order to maintain uniformity of the Show space, Exhibitor may not alter or paint the walls or signage without RMG’s prior approval.

Booth Sharing

No Exhibitor may share or sublet a booth either partially or entirely without written permission of RMG Management. Decisions regarding the approval of shared booths rest solely with RMG.

Conditions of Payment

Payment of the total booth rental must be made in two installments; 30% of the booth rental is due within 15 days of invoice date (issued by RMG upon receipt of signed contract from Exhibitor). The remaining balance (70%) is payable on or before June 15th, 2015. A finance charge of 1.5% monthly (18% annually) will be charged to any payments not received by the due dates published on the invoices. If the first payment is not received within 15 days of the invoice date, RMG may offer the booth to another gallery. If Exhibitor’s invoices are not paid by the due dates, or if Exhibitor’s Booth(s) costs have not been paid in full 28 days before the Show’s opening day, RMG reserves the right to impose a late charge of up to 10% of the balance due. Nonpayment of invoices will constitute a breach of the Exhibitor’s agreement with RMG and in such event RMG has the right to cancel Exhibitor’s Agreement, reallocate Exhibitor’s Booth(s) and retain all of Exhibitor’s payments made to that date with Exhibitor remaining liable for all unpaid invoices.
