5.1.1. to cancel the event ("Cancellation") or 3.1.2. to postpone the event to another period ("Postponement") or 3.1.3. to shorten the event period ("Shortening") or 3.1.4. to terminate the event ("Termination") if the event had already started when such a situation arises.

5.2.A "justified exceptional situation" within the meaning of 3.1 is the existence of force majeure or another comparable event.

5.2.1. "Force Majeure" is an event with external influence, unforeseeable at the time of the conclusion of the exhibition contract, has no operational or personal connection or cannot be attributed to the sphere of one of the contractual parties and cannot be averted even by exercising the utmost care that can reasonably be expected. This includes in particular but not exhaustively, the events listed below as examples: Natural disasters and their consequences, war, terrorist attacks, pandemics, endemics, the interruption or massive impairment of transport, supply or telecommunications connections.

5.2.2. "Other comparable events" in accordance with 1.2 shall also be deemed to include unforeseeable lawful strikes and lawful lockouts as well as other interruptions or disruptions of operations for which the contractual parties are not responsible.

5.2.3. An event is considered to be "unforeseeable" within the meaning of the aforementioned 3.2.1 and 3.2.2 if, at the time of conclusion of the contract, it could not be assumed, after reasonable assessment of actual indications and with regard to the time of the event, with sufficient probability, that a case of force majeure or "other comparable event" was imminent.

5.3. Furthermore, a justified exceptional situation as per 3.2 shall also be deemed to exist if, at the time of the measure taken in accordance with 3.1, it can be assumed with sufficient probability based on a reasonable assessment of actually existing indications that a case of Force Majeure or "other comparable event" within the meaning of 3.2 is imminent at the time of the event. This is also the case, for example, if a justified exceptional situation existed at an earlier point in time and has been remedied in the meantime, but a new justified exceptional situation is to be expected at the time of the event (e.g. a further wave of infection from the COVID-19 pandemic).
