1. Selection criteria for Institutions
In order to be eligible to exhibit at any of the Events, the institutions must:
Event registration is done online through the website www.studyineuropefairs.eu. Exhibitors accept to participate on the exhibition date in Uzbekistan. The registration is binding. Once the exhibitor has submitted the registration, they cannot be discharged from their contractual duties. The online registration serves as a contract upon submission and acceptance by the Organisers. It becomes binding for both parties upon acceptance by the Organisers, in the form of a separate confirmation sent in writing (e-mail).
3. Quota system
One exhibition booth will be offered free of charge to each Erasmus+ programme country – this will be offered to the national agency in charge of higher education promotion or to the respective Embassy. Places for Higher Education Institutions will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis per country. If after the deadline, certain places have not been taken up, these will be evenly reallocated amongst countries with additional applicants based on the date and time of the registration. If the number of applications exceeds the number of booths available, eligible institutions will be placed on a waiting list according to the date and time of their registration.
Consortia will be treated as one institution – e.g. only one exhibition booth, one entry in the exhibition leaflet, one name on the fascia board, one listing on the website and in all fair material. Consortia are requested to nominate a representative who will accept the responsibility and liability of the group.
5. Payment schedule
British Council – on behalf of the Organisers – will aim to invoice Exhibitors for the Event before the Event takes place (in accordance with the British law). British Council will invoice the Exhibitor not more than six weeks prior to the Event for the fees payable for the participation. All invoices shall be paid within 30 days of the invoice date. In the event of late payment, the British Council reserves the right to charge interest at three per cent per annum above the UK base lending rate of HSBC Bank PLC from the date on which the invoice has become due until the date of payment, calculated on a daily basis. Terms of payment and deadlines will be stated on the invoice and must be respected in order for the Exhibitor to be able to take part in the Event. The Organisers reserve the right to cancel the contract and otherwise use the space reserved if payments are not remitted on time. In such an event, the Organisers shall not be liable for any resulting costs, damages and/or losses charged to the Exhibitor. If on the instructions of the Exhibitor, invoices are made out to a third party; the Exhibitor continues to be liable for all charges.
The exhibitor shall pay the fees for participation in the Event as published in the Event profile. Unless otherwise stated, all fees published in the Event Profile are exclusive of VAT, which the exhibitor shall, where applicable, pay in addition.
