Upon acceptance as a showcase performer (Strolling/Variety/Musical) the artist and/or their promoter or agent agrees to the following:
Stage Acts (Musical and Variety Acts)
All costs for showcasing are the responsibility of the act/ attraction (travel, accommodations, meals, etc.).
If a selected act is unable to appear, no substitutions will be permitted for its showcase performance without prior approval by CAFE. Cancellation by an agent or promoter does not guarantee that agent/promoter the opportunity to fill the vacant showcase. All fees are non-refundable.
Only showcase acts can purchase a tradeshow booth at a discount rate (plus electricity if required). The rate includes:
Flagrant interference with another's ability to do business on the part of all showcase performers and/or their agents/promoters will not be tolerated and may result in cancellation of showcase performance without refund.
Showcase performers and their representative will have the opportunity to network with delegates at the CAFE Hospitality Suite on the evening of their performance. Appropriate conduct will be required at all times. CAFE reserves the right to remove anyone from the Hospitality Suite
All showcase applications must include the completed registration form and applicable fee. Once a showcase has been confirmed, payment will be processed. If an application is not accepted for showcasing, payment will not be processed, the cheque will be returned or credit card information destroyed.
Incomplete applications will not be considered. The organizers strive to give the fullest consideration to the interests of the performers. Should any questions arise which are not addressed within the text of these Terms & Conditions, the organizers' decision must be accepted as final.
CAFE will take photographs and video at the CAFE Convention and may use them in CAFE news or promotional materials whether in print, electronic or other media, including the CAFE website.
