Faramundi (Spain), one of our foreign exhibitors, reported on the last Fair: “Congratulations on creating and promoting such an important event, both in number of exhibitors and visitors. Our NGO, which came from far away, was well-received and got personalized support from the organization and other exhibitors. This fair is a must to meet new donators and beneficiaries of aid and humanitarian projects. It helped us find partners, meet new NGOs working in the same or complementary sectors, and it enabled us to share ideas and projects. We hope we’ll be able to come next year to this fair, which offers all the benefits of an international fair in a city like Paris—where we were also very well received!”

Technical Information

Description of the stands Size Different stand sizes are offered to exhibitors: 4 m² / 6m² / 9m² / 18m²/ 36 m² We offer many options to ensure that every different need and budget of the organizations working for the international solidarity will be met. Please take note that 4m² stands come in a limited number. Sides: A simple stand has only one side opened to the public (1st picture below). Stands with several open sides are more expensive because they offer better visibility. As it requires different spatial organization, their number is limited. See below for examples of our stands Basic Stands 1.





Basic stand details: 2,40m high melamine walls Fitted carpet floor Front sign with the name of the exhibitor and number of the stand 1 table and 2 folding chairs Design is left to the exhibitors (boards and posters can be affixed to the walls with Blu-Tack or adhesive tape, it is forbidden to drill holes into the wall). Decoration shall respect the Fair’s rules and regulations (see end of document). Extra furniture and options (by request) An exhaustive list of extra furniture and options will be sent by request and without delay Furniture


• Extra tables • Extra chairs • Other furniture

• Extra open side on the stand • Electric panel • Lighting Track: 2 spots (for 4 and 6 m2 stands), 3 spots (for 9 m2 stands or more) • Power supply for the lighting track • Internet Connection • Parking space


llation Electrical insta on the stands

Lighting Organizers assume responsibility for general lighting for the Fair. Exhibitors assume responsibility for the lighting of their stand. Two options are offered to exhibitors: - One lighting track with a simple electrical panel supporting the lighting for the stand and power supply for extra equipment (computer, projector‌); - One lighting track with multiple electrical panels, which shares lighting with three other stands and, consequently, the cost. Please note that it is strictly forbidden to plug other equipment into the multiple electrical panels.

Electrical equipment plugs

Exhibitors Form


Might you require extra electrical equipment on your stand? A simple electrical panel (between 3 and 20 Kw) can support normal equipment (except electrical appliances). Each electrical panel can only support electricity for a single stand (fire safety standards), and it is strictly forbidden to plug other equipment into multiple electrical panels. This would leave the Fair at risk of a general power failure. Price for a single electrical panel includes rent of the equipment, installation and dismantling, and electricity supply during the Fair. Connections and installation of extra equipment are assumed by the exhibitor. Please bring extension cords and multiple plugs if necessary. The exhibitor should check the power of any equipment he wishes to use to determine which electrical panel he should rent (from 3 to 20 kw).

t y, Cleaning, securi insurance


Organizers assume the cleaning of common areas (aisles, common spaces, entrance, toilets and parking lot). Exhibitors shall assume the cleaning of stands.


Organizers assume responsibility for general security of the Fair during set up, running, and dismantling of the event. Please note that is it difficult to ensure strict control of entries during set up and dismantling. Exhibitors are asked to be particularly vigilant. During opening hours of the Fair, exhibitors are asked to present an entrance badge: exhibitors’ badges are given during set up.


Organizers provide the exhibitors with civil liability but cannot be held responsible for theft or damages that may occur during set up, dismantling, exposition, or Exhibitors’ Evening. Exhibitors must purchase their own exposition insurance in order to insure their equipment.

Article 6: Information given

Article 7: Third party participation

Free or not free promotion or publicity of any kind in any form is strictly forbidden for non-exhibiting organizations.

Article 8: Catering

Only organizers are entitled to sell catering services (reception, cocktails, caterer ) and consumables.

Article 9: Stands

The Salon des Solidarités provides stands with variable surfaces to exhibitors. Organizers set up the layout of the event and allocate the stands. The allocation is conducted under three criteria:

- Classification of the organizations into sectors (projects/resources/providers), for a better understanding by the public of the diversity of the international solidarity participants; - Implementation of other events areas at the Fair; - Equipment limitations of a number of stands (lighting, etc.). The exhibitor can inform the organizers of which organizations he would prefer to have as neighboring stands. Organizers reserve the right to change, at any time they deem necessary and in the interest of the event, the disposition and allocation of the surfaces. In the case of an exhibitor’s allocated space not being available for any reason not attributable to the organizers, the exhibitor has right to ask for reimbursement of the price of the rent for the stand, minus damages.

Article 10: Layout and running of the stands

Exhibitors shall, prior to occupancy of a stand, be aware of the location of the different safety installations near the stand. They shall take, during occupancy of the stand, all necessary measures to ensure that fire hoses and hydrants stay permanently available. Penalties are to be imposed for any abusive use of safety equipment. Exhibitor is responsible for his stand and his equipment: organizers will not be liable for any actual theft or damage of the stands during hours open to the public. For safety and health reasons, animals are not allowed in the exhibition hall. Electrical sockets and electricity consumption on individual stands are to be ordered on the renting contract. Organizers are allowed to control the installations. Exhibitors shall remain responsible for any rented equipment. Exhibitors shall assume the cleaning of the stands. No stand shall be dismantled or emptied before the end of the Fair (Sunday, June 8, at 7:00 p.m.).

Article 11: Intellectual and other rights

Exhibitors shall take, prior to the event, all measures regarding protection of intellectual equipment, products, or services that they will present (patents, brands, models) in accordance with all applicable legal provisions. Organizers assume no responsibility in case of dispute with another exhibitor or visitor. Exhibitors shall deal directly with the SACEM for any music broadcasting and/or use during the event, even for simple performances of audio material.

Potential claims regarding this invoice must be sent by mail in the month following reception of the invoice.

Article 14: Cancellation

Any cancellation request must be sent to “Salon des Solidarité” by registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt. In case of withdrawal after final allocation of stand(s), the whole rent is due by the exhibitor. However, in the case of a stand being reattributed, only 50% of the rent will be charged for administrative expenses. In case of non-compliance with clauses and conditions of the contract regarding the payment, organizers are entitled to cancel the contract with immediate effect. In this case, no amount shall be reimbursed.

Article 15: Parking and delivery areas

Maximal speed allowed inside Viparis premises is 20km/h. Parking is not allowed, even for brief periods of time, outside of parking areas and car parks. Caravans and mobile homes are not allowed on the site. Parking is forbidden on fire routes or security services routes. While open to the public, parking and loading/unloading are not allowed around the buildings nor on safety zones. Vehicles failing to comply shall be removed without notice and brought to an appropriate area. Costs of removal of the vehicle shall be paid by the offender and are to be paid before reclamation of the vehicle. Organizers and Viparis are not liable for any theft or damages of any kind caused to the parked vehicles or for any material or physical accident during parking.


Organizers provide civil liability for any damage on public spaces (aisles, event areas, etc.). This insurance does not cover exhibitors or their stands. Exhibitors must purchase their own exposition insurance covering theft, fire, and water damages.

Article 16: Other clauses 16-1: Reservations and changes in the schedule
