Terms & Conditions

Attendee

Entry calculation for course bookings:
When booking a course, the day ticket is given to the participant as gift. This means that only one person is entitled to free admission, even if the person has been booked more than once. In this way, we can guarantee that the course participants also have an entry ticket.

Cancellations of course bookings:
Up to 2 months before the event the course fee will be refunded at 100%.
Up to 1 month before the event the course fee will be refunded at 50%.
After 1 month there will be no refund.

Course cancellations by the organization:
Courses that do not reach the minimum number of participants will be cancelled 1 month before the festival starts. The previous participants will be informed and their costs will be refunded in full.

Cancellations of entrance tickets:
For day and weekend tickets there is no refund. These are not refundable.

Ticket shipment
The tickets will be sent by e-mail after receipt of payment. Please also check your spam folder, as many mail providers pre-sort the e-mails.

Advance booking
The advance booking is closed 1 week before the festival. There is a box office for admission to the exhibitor hall. Courses can no longer be booked on site.

Exhibitor and Teacher

With your application you accept the following conditions of participation:

Teacher

The decision about the participation lies with the SYF and will be made until 2 weeks after the application deadline.
SYF reserves the right to cancel a course if the number of participants is low. This applies to courses that have not reached the minimum number of participants by 1 month before the start of the festival.
Courses can be booked online up to 1 week before the festival. Courses cannot be booked directly at the festival.

Upon request, SYF will inform the course instructors about the capacity utilization of a course. The courses will be advertised on the SYF website and in the social media.
For this we need photos, either they will be provided by the course instructors or we “use” the SM accounts of the respective course instructors.
The compensation of the instructors will be made according to a separate workshop agreement.

Exhibitor

The decision about the participation lies with the SYF and will be made until 2 weeks after the application deadline.
With the receipt of the invoice and the payment of the stand fee the participation is definitively confirmed. If our invoice is not paid within the specified period, SYF may subcontract the stand space without further notice.
Cancellations by exhibitors after our confirmation will unfortunately be charged in full.

Exhibitors from abroad: Please contact your customs office to find out what options there are for transporting goods to and from Switzerland. It is your decision how you want to handle this. We do not accept any liability for customs duties and taxes.
The customs clearance of Switzerland is described here:

Location
The SYF will take place in the Seminar & Congress Centre Riverside, Spinnerei-Lettenstrasse, 8192 Zweidlen-Glattfelden, in the KämmererSaal.
The stand will not have to be cleared overnight as the hall will be locked.

Advertising
Advertising by the exhibitors is welcome, each of us (SYF organisation team as well as exhibitors) contributes to the success of SYF.
Exhibitors will receive the flyer in electronic and paper form.
Various advertising channels will be used, most intensively the social media (please link contributions and absolutely pass them on!).

Sales area
Depending on what has been booked, the desired space will be available for furnishing on Friday.

The columns available in the room must be partly integrated into the stands, in this case they may be “used”, but not damaged (i.e. fixing of exhibits only with e.g. cord or tape). In the case of a stand on the wall, no nails, screws etc. may be knocked into the walls! Any damage shall be borne by the exhibitor.
All products must be marked with a price tag and the company name and label must be clearly visible on the stand.
No food may be sold at the stand.

The SYF:

  • allocates the stand space (wishes unfortunately cannot be taken into account)
  • sets up the tables beforehand
  • does not assume any sales guarantee
  • disclaims any liability

Insurance and any tax issues are the responsibility of the exhibitor.

Loading / unloading the goods
The hall has a back entrance which should be used for loading and unloading the goods. SYF will instruct you, we ask you to load and unload quickly and then park your car so that there is room for the next exhibitors.
