Terms of Service
Last update: October 27, 2019
Notice: It is the client’s responsibility to review the Terms of Service on a regular basis, not only for updates, but also to be familiar with their rights and responsibilities.
The following terms of service constitute a contract (“Contract”) between EventZen Events Inc. (“EventZen” and/or “US” and/or “WE”) and all signatories of proposals set forth by EventZen (“CLIENT” and/or “YOU”) concerning services to be provided by EventZen and any other related products or services (“Service” or “Services”).
BY USING EventZen’s SERVICES, YOU DECLARE THAT YOU ARE OF LEGAL AGE TO PARTICIPATE IN THIS CONTRACT AND THAT YOU HAVE READ AND UNDERSTOOD, IN ITS ENTIRETY, THE TERMS OF SERVICE LISTED IN THIS DOCUMENT.
CLIENT has agreed to engage EventZen to perform pre-registration, registration, and show management and consulting services as described in the present proposal (“Proposal”).
The Proposal will indicate the number of events or years the Contract will cover.
The project(s) assigned to EventZen is subject to the terms and conditions contained in the present Agreement and Schedule.
CLIENT’s tradeshow or conference shall be referred to as the Event in this Agreement and associated Proposal. The CLIENT warrants that it legally has the right to represent and put on this Event under the terms of an agreement between the CLIENT and the rightful Event owner.
The CLIENT further represents that any and all activity associated with the Event is legal, and that by EventZen associating themselves with the CLIENT, EventZen is not aiding and abetting any illegal activities.
Both the CLIENT and EventZen agree to inform each other and the Event owner of any wrongdoing or illegal activity if found out during the course of the Event.
4. MULTIPLE EVENTS.
Should this Agreement represent multiple events awarded to EventZen by the CLIENT each EVENT will be clearly identified. The final pricing and commitments by both EventZen and the CLIENT will be defined in the Proposal.
In the eventuality that the CLIENT has awarded to EventZen multiple Events that cannot or are not delivered to EventZen within the terms of this Contract, the CLIENT will be considered in default, and as such will forfeit any cost savings benefited by the CLIENT. EventZen will then invoice the CLIENT for the balance of the cost savings already given to the CLIENT in any previous invoices covered by the terms of this Contract and the Proposal. These invoices will be due upon receipt.
5. REQUIREMENTS & SERVICES.
The CLIENT agrees to provide EventZen with a statement of work, in writing, and all other supporting documentation needed to start the project, in addition to a deposit as specified in the Proposal, before EventZen begins work on the project.
The CLIENT agrees to exclusively use EventZen for all aspects of the solution described in the Proposal(s). The solution provided by EventZen as described in the Proposal must be delivered by EventZen. Should the CLIENT require any other registration, reporting, show coordination, or data management solutions the CLIENT agrees to request such work from EventZen.
The CLIENT has arranged for EventZen to directly speak to the venue contact to make arrangements for EventZen’s arrival, solution setup, and solution removal.
The CLIENT warrants that they have provided EventZen with sufficient contact information for all contacts. If the client has not provided EventZen with direct contact information for all people, the CLIENT must do so on or by sixty (60) calendar days before the Event.
8. CREDIT CARD PROCESSING & HOLD BACKS.
The CLIENT acknowledges and agrees that EventZen retains the right to hold 100% of funds collected, if processing through EventZen’s processor, until the first day of the Event. EventZen must ensure to registrants that the Event will occur with 100% certitude, or be able to refund all paid registrants in full if it does not occur. EventZen further reserves the right to hold back up to 20% of all transactions for sixty (60) to ninety (90) calendar days after the Event concludes to cover any potential returns or charge backs. The exact period will be determined depending on the number of charge-backs received in the first sixty (60) calendar days after the conclusion of the event. EventZen shall then release the 20% hold back to the CLIENT less any contestations, refunds, and/or additional credit card processing fees that may have been incurred during that period.
The CLIENT further acknowledges and agrees that transaction fee rates charged by EventZen are charged against the total gross amount charged through the credit card processor, and not per credit card number or per transaction.
EventZen will provide to the CLIENT with a report detailing any monies removed from the 20% hold back for the disbursements made during a particular period. Similar collection reports shall be delivered to the client with the remaining 80%.
Funds will be distributed to unpaid invoices prior to being distributed to the CLIENT.
As a preventative measure against fraud, EventZen reserves the right to block payments originating from certain countries until further review has been made on a case by case basis. EventZen also reserves the right to refund any transaction that it suspects to be fraudulent.

The CLIENT is responsible for the replacement of all equipment that is stolen or damaged by anyone passing through the CLIENT’s Event venue space during the period defined by the Proposal and this Contract, not directly related to EventZen or EventZen’s direct representatives. The CLIENT is further responsible for the loss of data, data integrity, EventZen proprietary systems, and EventZen intellectual property during the period defined in this section.

10. TRANSPORTATION OF EQUIPMENT.
EventZen shall arrange the transportation of their equipment to the venue location at the cost of the CLIENT. EventZen shall endeavour to have the lowest price for quality service available for transportation. EventZen shall present the CLIENT to locate similar or better transportation services of their choosing; however EventZen reserves the right to approve said transportation company.

EventZen shall arrange the travel & accommodations for their personnel to and from the venue location for shows outside of Montreal; however the CLIENT shall be responsible for the payment of travel, accommodations and meal expenses incurred during the event and include travel dates.
Alternatively, the CLIENT can provide travel, accommodation and meals, if they feel they can obtain better rates. The provided travel, accommodation and meals cannot be inferior to that which EventZen personnel are accustomed to on a regular daily basis.
If the Proposal and/or Contract specifically state conditions to travel, accommodation and meals which contradict this clause, the Proposal and/or Contract overrules this clause.
The CLIENT must provide electrical power for the entire duration of the Event, and EventZen must be able to power their equipment from Setup Date to Tear-Down Date. The electrical requirement is detailed in the associated Proposal to this Contract.

The CLIENT shall be responsible for providing Internet access for all aspects of the registration area regardless of how many locations or stations for the entire period from Setup Date to Tear-Down Date.

Failure to remit said fine before the Setup Date will result in EventZen’s inability to deliver any aspect of this Contract and associated Proposal on time and on schedule.
EventZen provides, to the best of their ability, a Solution to meet the CLIENT’s needs as defined in the Proposal. This solution can be made up of software, tools, utilities, applications, hardware, and personnel.
