    The Event Organizer reserves its right to handle incoming sponsorship requests for DigiMarCon Events on a first-come, first-served basis.

Time shall be of the essence for the execution of this Agreement.

    The Sponsor acknowledges and accepts that compliance with the deadlines detailed in Schedule A is a legitimate expectation of the Event Organizer and an obligation of the Sponsor. The deadlines in Schedule A have been implemented by the Event Organizer to allow for quality assurance and proper review.

    5. THOUGHT LEADERSHIP SPONSORSHIP GUIDELINES

    In the event that the Sponsor elected a Thought Leadership Sponsorship and that such has been approved by the Event Organizer, the Sponsor agrees to be bound by the terms and conditions detailed in Schedule B of this Agreement (available to view and download at https://digimarcon.com/schedules/DigiMarCon Speaker Guidelines.pdf)..

    Further, the Sponsor shall grant the Event Organizer the following intellectual property rights:

    (a) A non-exclusive, perpetual, worldwide license, irrevocable right and permission to record, audiotape, videotape, photograph, use, alter, reproduce, publish, sell and distribute the Sponsor’s presentation and handout materials (collectively “Sponsor Property”) in any medium at the Event Organizer’s discretion. This right shall survive the termination of this Agreement and shall include but shall not be limited to, the right to reproduce, publish, and sell the Sponsor Property at the Event Organizer’s discretion. The Sponsor waives all claims and rights to any portion of any monies accruing from the Event Organizer’s use of the Sponsor Property as described in this section.

    (b) A non-exclusive, perpetual, worldwide license, irrevocable right and permission to use, reproduce or otherwise distribute the Sponsor’s name, likeness, voice, photograph and/or other data in any publicity or promotional materials created or distributed by the Event Organizer, including rebroadcasts on a ‘virtual’ basis.

    (c) A non-exclusive, perpetual, worldwide license, irrevocable right and permission to broadcast the Sponsor’s presentation live over the Internet using any streaming media. The Event Organizer shall also be granted the right to disseminate rebroadcasts and reproductions of the broadcasts, in whole or in part, transcripts or summaries thereof in the Event Organizer’s print and online publications, and in any of the Event Organizer’s other product or service. The Sponsor further grants the Event Organizer the right to disseminate or authorize the dissemination of the broadcasts of the Presentation using any medium and to grant this right to all third-party licensees and to permit such licensees to use the broadcasts in English or in the language of their choice.

    6. LICENSES GRANTED

    Each party shall grant the other party a limited, non-exclusive license to use each other’s name, logo, and/or other service marks and trademarks in any software, application, content, feature, email newsletter, social media site, marketing material, press release and website for marketing, promotional, research and/or educational purposes.

    The Sponsor shall be authorized to reproduce the following tagline in its promotional material: Official Sponsor of DigiMarCon.

    7. PAYMENT TERMS

    Upon acceptance of the Sponsor’s Application by the Event Organizer, the Event Organizer shall send an invoice to the Sponsor for the sponsorship preference selected by the Event Organizer (the “Total Sponsorship Fees”). The Event Organizer shall use reasonable efforts to ensure the Sponsor receives its requested sponsorship preference.

    The Total Sponsorship Fees shall be invoiced and payable in United States Dollars (USD) by way of bank transfer to the Event Organizer’s designated bank account or by credit card (Note: credit/debit card payments Incur and additional 3% Processing Fee). The Total Sponsorship Fees shall be payable by the Sponsor within 30 days of the agreement signature date, unless set forth otherwise on the invoice sent to Sponsor.

    The Sponsor acknowledges and agrees that delays in payment may result in missed marketing deadlines and the Sponsor’s exclusion from marketing campaigns and advertis¬ing opportunities.

    8. CANCELLATION POLICY

    All cancellations must be in writing by email to sponsors@digimarcon.com and shall become effective when received by the Event Organizer. Both the Sponsor and the Event Organizer acknowledge that Event Organizer will sustain substantial losses if the Sponsor cancels this contract. Even though the Event Organizer will exercise its best efforts to mitigate the damages associated with the Sponsor’s cancellation, the parties agree that the Event Organizer will nevertheless incur substantial losses that cannot be precisely determined.

    Accordingly, Sponsor agrees to waive any and all related future claims and to pay the Event Organizer the following fee as liquidated damages, and not as a penalty:

    • Sponsor shall be liable for a non-refundable fee of 50% of the contracted Sponsorship Fee when written cancellation notice is received on or prior to January 31st, 2024.
    • Sponsor shall be liable for a non-refundable fee of 75% of the contracted sponsorship cost when written cancellation notice is received by Event Organizer between February 1st, 2024 and February 29th, 2024.
    • Sponsor shall be liable for a non-refundable fee of 100% of the contracted sponsorship cost when written cancellation notice is received by the Event Organizer after February 29th, 2024.

    Liquidated damages collected and/or retained by the Event Organizer, shall be considered fully earned by the Event Organizer and non-refundable. This amount is considered to be liquidated and agreed upon damages, for the injuries the Event Organizer will suffer as a result of Sponsor’s cancellation. This provision for liquidated and agreed upon damages is a bona fide provision and not a penalty. The parties understand that the withdrawal of the sponsorship reserved from availability at a time when other parties would be interested in applying for it, will cause injuries the Event Organizer to sustain damages. In this situation, injuries the Event Organizer’s damages will be substantial, but they will not be capable to determine with mathematical precision. Therefore, the provisions for liquidated and agreed upon damages have been incorporated into this Agreement as a valid pre-estimate of these damages.

    The Event Organizer may elect to cancel any event, in whole or in part, at its sole discretion; and may, at its sole discretion, modify event dates. If the Event Organizer elects to cancel any event the Sponsor can either transfer the Sponsorship Fees paid towards another DigiMarCon event, to be used with 12 months of the original event date, or request a refund.

    9. RULES APPLICABLE TO EXHIBITORS

    In the event that the Sponsor elected an Exhibiting Sponsorship and that such has been approved by the Event Organizer, the Sponsor agrees to be bound by the terms and conditions detailed in Schedule C of this Agreement (available to view and download at https://digimarcon.com/schedules/DigiMarCon Exhibitor Rules and Regulations.pdf).

    10. HOTEL ACCOMMODATION

    Event Organizer has contracted a limited discount group block of rooms in each Event City Venue for use for Speakers, Exhibitors, Staff and Attendees. If the Sponsor requires accommodation in the Event City specific Hotel Booking Instructions are available in Schedule D of this Agreement (available to view and download at https://digimarcon.com/schedules/DigiMarCon Hotel Accommodation.pdf). Available rooms in Event Organizer discount group block are limited and will be filled on a first-serve basis.
