Contract for Space

The Exhibitor Booth Contract must be completed in its entirety and accompanied by the appropriate payment for the number of booths requested. No contracts will be processed or space assigned without booth payment. The signed contract and subsequent notice of assignment constitute a contract between the California Association for the Education of Young Children (hereinafter referred to as CAEYC) and the exhibitor. Any point not specifically covered in these regulations is subject to the decision of CAEYC, whose decision shall be final.

Refund and Cancellation Policy

Notice of cancellations must be made in writing (no exceptions) to CAEYC. Cancellations received on or prior to January 9, 2017 will result in CAEYC retaining 50% of the full rental cost of the booth space. No refunds for cancellations will be granted after January 9, 2017. CAEYC shall not be liable for any interest on the amount refunded.

Assignment of Space

Booth space will be assigned at the discretion of CAEYC with due regard to history of participation. 2015 and 2016 Exhibitors will be given first priority. Assignments will be made according to postmark date. Payments must be made before assignment of space.

CAEYC will attempt to assign requested spaces. However, exhibitors must be aware that other requests may have been made for the same booth space. The decision of CAEYC, with respect to booth space, will be final and binding upon all exhibitors.

CAEYC prohibits and enforces that exhibitors may not assign or sublet any part of their allotted exhibit space to another business or firm without the advance, written permission of CAEYC. Contracts for exhibit space are between CAEYC and each individual exhibitor, not between exhibiting companies. Therefore, the subletting of space is grounds for CAEYC’s termination of any contract that exists and all monies paid will be forfeited.
