All cancellations of participation must be in writing (return receipt required) and shall become effective when received by the Company. Both the Exhibitor and the Company acknowledge that the Company will sustain substantial losses if the Exhibitor cancels its Contract after it has been assigned space.

- If cancellation is made on or after July 1st, 2022, Exhibitor is liable for 100% of the total exhibit space.
All cancellation fee payments made or due to the Company shall be fully earned and non-refundable, in consideration for expenses incurred by the Company and its lost or deferred opportunity to provide exhibit space to others. The Exhibitor acknowledges all cancellation fees that may become due hereunder are liquidated damages and are not applicable toward any future produced shows, events or magazine advertising. The Company will invoice Exhibitor for cancellation fees in excess of payments, if any, already received from Exhibitor; invoices for cancellation fees are due upon receipt. Exhibitor’s space may be canceled by the Company for failure to make payments when due or failure to comply with Church Facilities Conference & Expo regulations. If space is canceled by the Company, Exhibitor will be notified in writing. It is further agreed that based on the timing of such cancellation, as evidenced by letter notification, the Exhibitor is liable for the same cancellation charges as stated herein for cancellation by the Exhibitor. Upon such cancellation, the Company may lease the cancelled space to another exhibitor at its discretion. In the event that the Company is unable to produce the Church Facilities Conference & Expo event due to restrictions imposed related to COVID-19, exhibiting companies will have the option of receiving a full refund or to move their deposits to a future event.
