II - GENERAL PROVISIONS
The participant in the Event, whether as exhibitor, exhibitor’s staff, participant, speaker, guest, etc. (the “Participant”) formally undertakes to comply with these RULES and to comply in all respects with the applicable regulations in the scope of its participation to the Event, notably related, when applicable, to the stand’s tenure or events held on the stand. It undertakes furthermore to take note of and to accept without reservation the instructions laid down by the Management of the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès de Cannes, (hereinafter “Palais des Festivals”) or of other venues, where the Event(s) is/are held particularly as regards health and safety regulations, these latter documents being communicated to it, in particular, in the “Technical Manual” relating to the event. Access to the premises is prohibited for children under the age of 16 years old. Access could be refused or withdrawn to any person for the Event(s) and/or for any future events organised by Reed MIDEM should the need arise, who is not correctly and appropriately dressed, and, more generally, whose behaviour, demeanour and/or dress could interfere with the image of the Event, its serenity, decorum or professional environment.
More generally, each Participant hereby guarantees that its offer of products and / or services does not contravene public order and the applicable regulations. Notably, each Participant acknowledges that it is strictly forbidden to exhibit products and/or services that are illicit or result from illicit activities and that it is also strictly forbidden to non authorised parties to propose products and/or services which result from regulated activities. In this respect, in case of infringement of the applicable regulations, participants may face legal proceedings, without prejudice to any measures that the Organiser reserve to take in order to put an end to the trouble.
1 - Organiser’s obligations and rights
The Organiser undertakes to ensure that the Event is properly conducted in Cannes (France) on the dates indicated in this contract, and every day from 9.00 am to 7.00 pm except on the final day, when it will close at 6.00 p.m.
The dates may however be changed by the Organiser, in addition to an unforeseen circumstance or force majeure, without the participant being able to object to this or to claim any compensation, if it was in the interest itself of the event, in view of its purpose and its international character, that such a change should take place, with the Organiser being responsible for notifying the Participant of such in writing as soon as possible in the light of the circumstances.
In the case of non-availability of the premises planned for running the event in Cannes, France, for reasons outside the Organiser’s control (such as administrative measures, unilateral decisions of the Cannes Town Hall [“Mairie”], etc.) or in the case of force majeure, the Organiser, after notifying the Participant of such and without the other conditions of its undertaking of participation being changed, in particular as regards the amount of such, may organise the said event in another town or city or another country, if needed, that is able to accommodate such an event of an international character, provided premises could be made available to it of the same standing and conditions of accommodation.
Failing this, the Organiser may cancel the Event outright after notifying the Participant of such; in this case, the participation contract with or without letting of stands will be terminated as of right. The sums still available from the amount of the participations, after paying all the expenses incurred by the Organiser, will be divided among the Participants pro rata to the sums paid by them, without them being able to bring any proceedings on any count and for any reason whatsoever against the Organiser, which each Participant expressly agrees to, this being an essential and determinant condition of its adhesion to this participation contract with or without letting of stand.
THE ORGANISER IS EXEMPT FROM ANY LIABILITY FOR ANY OR LOSS, DAMAGE, INJURY, COSTS AND EXPENSES GENERALLY (INCLUDING INTERFERENCE WITH POSSESSION OR QUIET ENJOYMENT AND ANY COMMERCIAL HARM OR LOSS) THAT MIGHT BE SUFFERED BY THE PARTICIPANTS FOR ANY REASON WHATSOEVER, AND IN PARTICULAR FOR DELAY IN OPENING, PREMATURE SHUTDOWN OF THE EVENT, CLOSURE OR DESTRUCTION OF STANDS, FIRE AND ANY ACCIDENT, ETC.

3.4 - use of audio equipment
The Participant expressly undertakes to use the audio equipment located on its office/stand only at an acoustic level that does not exceed as a maximum 60 decibels at the outer limit of the stand and so as not to spoil the proper enjoyment of the occupation of the other offices/stands and more generally the proper conduct of the Event.

The Participant is likewise obliged scrupulously to comply with the internal order measures inside the event or any policing measures prescribed not only by the Organiser, but also by any competent authority.
6 - advertising - distribution of documents or items or objects of any kind
Any form of advertising other than that using the media made available to the participant by the Organiser, and for which the fees for insertion or display have been paid beforehand in accordance with the rates in force, is strictly forbidden within the Event venue and its immediate surroundings. Any authorised advertorial-type advertising within the Event venue must carry the banner “PUBLICITÉ” [ADVERTISEMENT]. For example, the use of self-adhesive advertisements or advertising materials not specifically authorised by the Organiser is strictly forbidden. Furthermore, the distribution of prospectuses, brochures, leaflets or documents of any kind as a promotional item is strictly limited within the Event venue and its immediate surroundings, and is subject to the organiser’s prior permission.
The Organiser, in particular in its capacity as publisher of the various catalogues, newspapers and websites (hereafter individually “Medium” or collectively “Media”) specific to the Event is the person responsible for their publication, will have a right of control over all advertising wordings or announcements posted on Medias for the purposes of complying with applicable laws, ensuring the proper conduct and unity of the event and more generally the interests of all of the Participants. In this respect, it may inter alia remove any references that may attract directly or indirectly any participant outside the confines of the Event, such as a reference to a hotel or to any premises outside the said Event.
Furthermore, it is specified that the Organiser is the sole holder of the rights to publish and to distribute Medias. It may grant all or part of such rights. The information necessary for the drafting of Medias is provided by the participant on his/her/its own responsibility. The Organiser will not be liable for omissions, errors of reproduction, composition, etc., that may occur.
IIn the case that a Participant who/which has placed an order for advertising on a Medium has not forwarded to the Organiser the documents and information necessary for its publication in the allowed time determined by the Organiser, in particular, by three weeks before the opening of the Event (for catalogues), and twenty-four hours before their publication (for newspapers), the Organiser reserves the right to print on the site adopted the words: “Site reserved for…”, followed by just the Participant’s name, and the latter will be unable to demand reimbursement of its order or any compensation whatsoever.
The documents used for the publication of such advertising will be returned to the Participant or its agent only at their request.
As the Organiser is obliged to keep them for only one year, it may destroy them once this time-limit has passed. Because of technical requirements, preferential spaces cannot be guaranteed.
One copy of each advertisement for the record will be sent after publication to the Participant or to its agent. Insofar as the organiser, because of non-conformity of the material delivered, has to design and produce the advertisements, the Participant will be obliged to pay it for the relevant works of design, composition and execution.
Any Participant in the main event will be able to sponsor one or more of the side¬events or publications organised in connection with the main event, subject to complying with all of the provisions of the RULES. The Organiser will allocate the right to sponsor each of the side-events to the first participant who has applied to do so and has forwarded to the Organiser payment of the sums owned for such sponsoring on the date of signature of said participation contract. The right to sponsor includes visibility at the side-events referred to in the Advertising /Sponsoring contract. The terms for sponsoring will be specified in an annex to the contract. The Organiser, in particular in its capacity as publisher of the various catalogues and daily newspapers specific to the main event and the person responsible for their publication, will determine the spaces available in connection with the sponsoring and will have a right to check, on each of the media, the contents reflecting the sponsoring of the event in question. The intellectual property rights relating to the contents issued at the events will remain the property of Reed MIDEM and/or of their authors. A Participant’s application to sponsor a side-event will be final and irrevocable. In the event of withdrawal at any time whatsoever and on any grounds whatsoever, except in the case of force majeure, the Participant concerned will remain liable for the full amount owing under this provision and for any invoice relating to such, except in the case of force majeure, notwithstanding the Organiser’s right to substitute for the Participant in default any other sponsor of its choice. The Organiser will not under any circumstances be held liable for the statements or other information provided by the sponsor, who warrants that the said information is not contrary to public policy; that he/she/it is the owner, as the case may be, of all the intellectual property rights or other rights relating to the said content or information; that such content or information may be freely used and reproduced and that no third party has any ownership or other property rights over such content or information. The sponsor undertakes to indemnify and compensate the Organiser in respect of any third-party claim relating to the contents or information provided by him/her/it, the subject of the sponsoring.
7 - hotel
As the Organiser may have entered into agreements with the Hoteliers of Cannes and its surrounding area, in order to be able to provide, as far as possible and on the best terms, accommodation for MIPIM Participants, without it however being liable in particular in respect of the reservation of the hotel chosen, each Participant formally undertakes throughout the event not to install in the rooms or the suites of the hotels any electro-acoustic or video reproduction equipment that is not in accordance with the intended purpose of the premises, on pain of being required by the Hotel Management to remove such equipment forthwith.
8 - exclusivity of the Participant’s activities within the confines of the event
The Participant will expressly refrain from engaging outside the Palais des Festivals as well as any other exhibition area, as determined by the Organiser from time to time, in activities identical or similar to those exercised within the confines of the event during such and in particular on premises such as a hotel or any other premises outside the said event.

9 - photographers and cameramen
Photographers and cameramen may be allowed, with the Organiser’s written permission, to operate within the confines of the event. A print of all the photographs taken or a copy of the audio or video recordings so made must be delivered to the Organiser within fifteen days after the close of the event. Such permission maybe withdrawn at any time. The taking of photographs by participants may be banned by the Organiser.

10 - information technology and civil liberties
Personal information, including photographs, that is requested from the Participant is essential for entering into this contract and for access to the Event. It is the object of a processing which has been declared to the French Data Protection Authority. It is forwarded to third parties, including those companies of the Reed Elsevier group, with whom the Organiser has contracted for the purposes of implementing this contract and other Participants registered to the Event, which are located all over the world for purposes of organising their participation to the Event. Information may be used, in this regard, on any media for dissemination relating to the Event in question, including on the Internet, unless, in this latter case, there is an objection from the Participant concerning photographs.
Through the Organiser, and except where there is an objection by the Participant, the latter may receive commercial offers or proposals from the Organiser, from other companies that are contractually linked to the Organiser and from other Participants registered to the Event.
Upon registering to the Event, since the Participant’s personal data are accessible to all other Participants, the Participant acknowledges and accepts that the Organiser can not be held liable for the use that is made of those data by the other Participants or their partners, said Participants and partners being located in states that may not provide a sufficient level of protection equivalent to French law, and in particular French Data Processing, Data Files and Individual Liberties Law dated January 6th, 1978 as modified.
Pursuant to the said law the Participant may exercise, at the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org, a right of access, of rectification and of opposition or objection as regards the personal information concerning it that is present on the Organiser’s database(s).
All Participants undertake to use said data only for purposes of organising their participation in the Event. In particular, any prospecting for purposes other than the abovementioned is prohibited. The Organiser reserves the right to have any disturbances caused by any such prohibited use terminated by any means, including the disconnection of the Participant from the database. This is without prejudice to any legal action that the Organiser may take in order to exercise its rights and of any damages to which the Organiser may be entitled as a result of such breach of contractual provisions.
11 - penalties
Any breach by the Participant of the provisions of these RULES prescribed by:
- clause 2 concerning payment of the amount of the participation,
- clause 3.3 concerning the occupation of the offices/stands, and the ban on arranging public performances or concerts in the offices/stands, as well as the ban on sub-letting the said offices/stands,
- clause 7 concerning the ban on installing in hotel rooms and suites any equipment that is not in accordance with the intended purpose of the premises,
- clause 8 concerning the ban on engaging outside the Palais des Festivals in activities similar to those exercised within the confines of the event during such, will lead automatically and without prior notice, this being a breach of the essential and determining conditions of adhesion to this contract, to the immediate exclusion of the participant from the confines of the event and without reimbursement of the amount of the participation or of any sum paid by him/her/it, which will remain vested in the Organiser.
Any other breach by the Participant of the provisions of these RULES may lead to the same penalties but after prior notice to remedy such that has continued to have no effect for a period of 24 hours from receipt of such.
In addition, the Organiser reserves its right to unilaterally and ipso jure terminate the participation contract in case of any breach or non performance by the participant of the above-mentioned provisions of the Rules, without prejudice of any damages that the Organiser could claim because of such breach and/or of the non performance.
12 - miscellaneous provisions
The Participant by signing the participation contract with or without letting of stands agrees to the provisions of these RULES and, as the case may be, of the “Technical Manual”, as well as any further provisions that may be imposed by the circumstances and adopted in the interest of the event by the Organiser, which reserves the right to draw their attention to such, even verbally. Any mention or note made by the participant to the present Rules shall be considered as null and void. These Rules are subject to modifications and are deemed to have been accepted by the Participant(s) for itself and on behalf of its directors, employees, representatives, agents, suppliers and/or guests and prevail over any other terms and conditions.
THESE RULES AS WELL AS THE PARTICIPATION CONTRACT WITH OR WITHOUT LETTING OF STANDS, WHICH CONSTITUTES AN ADHESION CONTRACT, ARE GOVERNED BY FRENCH LAW, AND THE FRENCH VERSION OF SUCH, WHICH THE PARTICIPANT IN ANY CASE ACKNOWLEDGES HAVING TAKEN NOTE OF (ON THE WEBSITE www.mipim.com AND/OR UPON WRITTEN REQUEST BY HIM/HER/IT TO THE ORGANISER), WILL ALONE BIND THE PARTIES, WHICH THE LATTER EXPRESSLY RECOGNISE. IN THE CASE OF A DISPUTE RELATING TO THE INTERPRETATION OR THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THIS ADHESION CONTRACT, THE COURT OF THE PLACE OF THE ORGANISER’S REGISTERED OFFICE WILL HAVE SOLE JURISDICTION TO HEAR SUCH, WHICH THE PARTIES EXPRESSLY AGREE.
13 - Business code of conduct
MIPIM seeks to protect all clients by ensuring that business is conducted in the Palais des Festivals or in zones reserved exclusively for registered customers during market business hours.
Due to complaints from our valued clients, we thought it important to restate market policy. Any company, registered or unregistered at MIPIM, who carries out business related to MIPIM activities outside the designated exhibition areas (apartments, suites, hotels, restaurants) does so in violation of French Law as well as MIPIM tradeshow rules. The unfair practice of soliciting potential customers outside of the exhibition area infringes on the goodwill of participants who have legally and in good faith registered for these services.
Important facts to remember
- Any commercial activity related to MIPIM taking place outside of the specified trade show zones is forbidden by law during the market’s business hours.
- Presentations, sales meetings, flyer distribution, etc. qualify as commercial activity.
- MIPIM sales representative can help design the right set up for your specific needs within each market.
