Booking Terms & Conditions
The SPONSOR / EXHIBITOR agrees to be bound by these Terms of Acceptance with respect to support for GAPC 2023 and further agrees that it shall be bound by the rates, submission deadlines, cancellation deadlines, and cancellation conditions outlined below.

  1. All participation is subject to the approval of GAPC who also reserves the right to decline or cancel exhibitors due to non-performance.
  2. No responsibility will be accepted by GAPC for loss arising from non-adherence to deadlines of whatsoever nature which, once provided to the sponsor or expo partner, immediately come into effect and form part of this contract.
  3. GAPC will use its best endeavors to deliver on its obligations to the sponsor / exhibition partners correctly but will not be liable for any loss of profits or damages suffered by the participant as a result of the participant’s failure to do so and any failure in this regard will not entitle the advertiser to withhold payment of the account rendered in any respect.
  4. GAPC shall be exempt from any liability arising from force majeure or where performance of its obligations is prevented by circumstances outside its control.
  5. Verbal cancellation will not be valid; only a written cancellation via an email or faxed letter, with an acknowledged response from GAPC, will be accepted by GAPC and will serve as notice. No refunds for cancellations will be granted after 18 August 2023.
  6. All amounts payable are due simultaneously by the date mentioned on this document as “payment date”, save where GAPC has approved, in writing, an extension of the payment deadline in which event, GAPC reserves the right to suspend services if payment is not received on the due date.
  7. Nothing herein contained shall be interpreted as obliging GAPC to afford the participant any indulgence to effect payment after due date.
  8. In the event of GAPC instructing its attorneys to collect any amounts, all legal fees and collection charges, determined as the maximum permitted fees and charges in terms of the NCA and its regulations, a commission of 20% (twenty percent) of the amount outstanding, and legal fees as between attorney and participant shall be borne by the participant.

  10. This agreement is governed by South African Law and is subject to the jurisdiction of the South African courts. GAPC is allowed to institute legal proceedings for the recovery of any amount owing hereunder in the Magistrate’s Court of any district which by virtue of Section 28 of the Magistrate’s Court Act has jurisdiction over the advertiser, but this does not preclude GAPC at its own discretion from instituting legal proceedings in the Supreme Court of South Africa which has jurisdiction over the participant.
  11. All terms and conditions relating to the services are set out herein. All other terms and conditions are excluded unless agreed to in writing by GAPC, and no other conditions, warranties or representations, whether oral or written, express or implied by statute or otherwise, shall apply hereto.
  12. No concession, latitude or indulgence allowed by GAPC to the participant shall be construed as a waiver or abandonment of any of GAPC rights hereunder.
  13. In the event that any of the terms of these Terms of Acceptance are found to be invalid, unlawful or unenforceable, such terms will be severable from the remaining terms, which will continue to be valid and enforceable.
