5. LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY
The following limitations of BLENDZ EVENTS’ liability are acknowledged by the parties to be fair and reasonable:
A. Disclaimer and Limitation of Damages. IN NO EVENT SHALL BLENDZ EVENTS BE LIABLE FOR SPECIAL, INDIRECT, CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES ARISING UNDER CONTRACT, TORT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY, and WARRANTY OR ANY OTHER THEORY OF LIABILITY. Such damages include, but are not limited to, loss of profits, loss of business opportunity, loss of use of the Exhibit, damage to property, or claims of third parties. The total liability of BLENDZ EVENTS to Customer from any cause whatsoever, except liability related to transportation services as limited below, will be limited to the lesser of Customer’s actual damages or the purchase price for the Services that are the subject to Customer’s loss or damage.

C. Risk of Loss. BLENDZ EVENTS DOES NOT PROVIDE ON-SITE SECURITY. AT NO TIME SHALL BLENDZ EVENTS BE LIABLE FOR FIRE, WATER DAMAGE, THEFT, LOSS OF PROPERTY OR OTHER RISKS OR DAMAGES TO THE EXHIBIT OR CUSTOMER’S PROPERTY WITHIN THE EXHIBIT. Blendz Events is not responsible or liable for any Customer owned property or equipment while on the Show floor or while awaiting transportation. Customer is responsible for obtaining or providing its own insurance and for taking adequate security measures to protect its properties at Show site. Where BLENDZ EVENTS arranges for security for Customer through the Official Show Contractor, Customer shall look solely to that party in the event of any loss or damage.
D. Indemnification. Except as otherwise provided herein, each party agrees to indemnify and hold the other party harmless from and against any and all claims, demands, costs and expenses, including reasonable attorney’s’ fees for the defense thereof, arising from
(i) the indemnifying party’s, or its employee’s’, agent’s’ or representative’s’ wrongful or negligent acts or omissions or
(ii) the indemnifying party’s breach of any representation, warranty or obligation under this Agreement. In case of any action or proceeding brought against either party by reason of any such claim, upon notice from such party, the indemnifying party covenants to defend such action or proceeding (by counsel reasonably satisfactory to the other party), unless such action or proceeding alleges the joint or concurring wrongful or negligent act, or omission, of both parties.
E. Release of Liability. While BLENDZ EVENTS strives to ensure a safe work place, should Customer or any invitee of Customer enter the exhibit space while BLENDZ EVENTS is providing Services, Customer and such invitees assume the risk of injury and responsibility for their actions and Customer agrees to indemnify and hold BLENDZ EVENTS harmless for and defend it against any harm caused to persons and/or damage to properties resulting there from. BLENDZ EVENTS shall have the right to request such persons leave until the area is considered safe, request and receive a written release of liability from Customer with respect to such persons, and cease provision of Services without liability to Customer or any combination of actions thereof. When Customer acts as supervisor of BLENDZ EVENTS, Customer releases BLENDZ EVENTS from liability for acts arising out of or injury caused by work under the control of Customer or in accordance with the Customer’s instructions.
Neither party shall be liable for any damages sustained from delay or non-performance due to events beyond its reasonable control, including without limitation, strikes or other labor disputes, weather, earthquakes, fires, floods, war, riots, civil disorder, acts of terrorism, failure of power or utilities and government acts. If an occurrence over which neither party has reasonable control arises which would prevent, postpone, interrupt, or require cancellation of the Show, Customer shall reimburse BLENDZ EVENTS for its direct expenses in pursuing or providing Services until the date of this occurrence. Notwithstanding the foregoing, this Section 13 shall not apply to the financial inability of a party to perform here-under, or to any changes in the economy or marketplace.
