CONDITIONS FOR ELECTRICAL ENERGY SERVICE
Electric systems at stands must be installed in conformity to Italian Ministerial Decree 22/01/2008 and CEI (Italian Electric Standards Committee) specifications.
If installations do not conform to such specifications and if the Exhibitor has not presented the mandatory forms "Statement of correct execution of electric system and set-up" and "Statement of conformity of electric system," (or, for foreign companies, "Verification of compliance of electrical system"), the electricians (Official Suppliers of BolognaFiere) will not connect them to the power grid.
When installation of the electrical system at the stand has been completed, the Exhibitor can request the electrical connection at the exhibition offices of BolognaFiere.
The connection and the disconnection can be made exclusively by electricians who are Official Suppliers of BolognaFiere, after the Exhibitor has filled in the required forms.
It is strictly forbidden for the Exhibitor to make the connection and the disconnection itself or to tamper with the electric system of BolognaFiere S.p.A.; if it does, it will be held liable for any inefficiency and damage deriving from connections and disconnections made by unauthorized personnel.
The supply points, determined by BolognaFiere, may as well be positioned outside the booth area: the Exhibitor is responsible for laying down and protecting the cable needed to reach the supply points at his own expense.
RULES AND CONDITIONS
BolognaFiere S.p.A. will supply electric power for lighting and for motive power, within the limits of the installations available, subject to the following terms and conditions.
The guarantees and risks conferred to BolognaFiere S.p.A. by supplying utilities will be transferred to the Exhibitor for such services.
Electric installations are fed with 50 Hz (+/- 2%) and 400 Volts three-phase / 230 Volts single-phase (+/- 10%) with earth and neutral protection leads. Electric installations at the stands are at the total expense of the Exhibitor and must conform to M.D. 37 of 22/01/2008 and to CEI (Italian Electric Standards Committee) specifications. Moreover they must be carried out in conformity to the provisions of the Exhibition Technical Regulations and Security Brief.
To install electric systems at its stand, the Exhibitor undertakes to hire specialized firms and/or personnel with the qualifications required by regulations.
The Exhibitor must also check the line voltage personally when its electric system or equipment is connected, thus exonerating BolognaFiere S.p.A. and the electricians of the Official Supplier from any and all liability for damage that might be caused to persons or property due to the Exhibitor's failure to check the voltage or for any other reason.
If the requested power cannot be delivered by means of the existing electrical system, BolognaFiere S.p.A. may, in its final judgement, either limit it to the capacity of the existing system or reinforce its system with other provisional lines. In the latter case, the reinforcement lines will be installed by BolognaFiere S.p.A., but all costs therefor will be charged to the requesting Exhibitors. The supply of electricity for lighting, motive force and other uses is normally interrupted immediately at the end of the Exhibition, with exceptions being made for justified reasons.
N.B. The cost of electrical energy service will be charged on the basis of installed power, which is calculated by adding up the rated powers of all installed devices connectable to the electric mains, regardless of any lesser use by the Exhibitor, regardless of the cause.
IMPORTANT: For safety reasons, electrical systems at BolognaFiere must always be considered LIVE, even in case of temporary power failure, regardless of the cause.
