If I’m not mistaken, the Expo/Farm Show venue announced today that all monies paid by exhibitors, who subsequently cancelled due to the Reed rules change, would be refunded in-full.
Yes, but airline fares, hotel reeservations, advertising expenses, temporary employment expenses, vehicle reservations, and more may be consideerably greater then the exhibition fees.
I do several trade shows every year, and I would think they would have to return the money. The exhibitors and Reed entered into the agreements with a specific understanding of what would be allowed at the show.
If all of the people who cancelled were to file suit against Reed the cost would be astronomical. Even if Reed eventually won, they’d probably lose more money than they would if they simply refunded the money.
Postponing (cancelling) the show means they have to give all of the money back anyway.
They’re probably taking the least expensive path. But they’re still gonna take a huge financial hit. Serves the tyranny loving a—holes right.
