ExpoForum introduces a simplified system of participation in its exhibitions

ExpoForum will use the contracts based on the offer, which will allow exhibitors to facilitate the paperwork.

The public offer of ExpoForum is a proposal to conclude a contract with a list of all the terms of the transaction such as the terms of providing event organising services,  the sublease of exhibition spaces. . If the terms are acceptable, a request to participate is send, and an invoice is waited for. Then the invoice is paid according to the rates and dates written in the Exhibitor’s Manual on the exhibition web-site. The pay of services is equal to the concluding the contract on the terms declared in the offer. Thus, the use of the offer eliminates the amount of time wasted while concluding a standard two-sided agreement.  The text of the offer can be found on the sites of exhibitions at any convenient time.

Now, all the actions necessary for participation will easily shape into five steps.

1) Fill out the application, print it.

2) Get it signed by the manager, the chief accountant and then set the seal.

3) Send the application via e-mail or fax to the exhibition organisers.

4) Get an invoice.

5) Pay the invoice due to the time frame.

For the first time, the offers will be used at the XXI International Agricultural exhibition Agrorus which will be held from August 27 to September, 2.
