The parties agree that where it is impossible or unreasonably impractical for the Festival to take place due to any cause or event in connection with COVID-19 or any other communicable disease, it shall be treated as a Force Majeure Event, regardless of whether the parties could have reasonably foreseen the risk of such Force Majeure Event at the time of contract.
We understand that all beverages will be supplied to the Festival based on a sale on consumption basis.
There is no stall fee for a Beverage Vendor to take part in the Festival, and Wine, Cider, Beer or Seltzer will be reimbursed at % of Vendor product $ turnover (detailed below) after AWOP transaction fees. This turnover figure is based on actual Vendor AWOP product figures of consumption at the Festival, with the breakdown provided to the Vendor.
AWOP will provide a detailed post event report that will be used to calculate the volume sold in $ based on tasters and glass pours sold at the Festival.
Beverage sales over the Festival are run under the Festival Special License, and AWOP point of sale system.
Essentially operating like a normal bar with the Winery or Brewery the supplier and the Festival the “venue or bar”, (all revenue is the property of the Festival).
During service you are required to have a duty manager staff member to look after the bar area and oversee quality control (license requirements) and adequate service staff.
Strict beverage pour sizes, stock control and AWOP point of sales systems must be adhered to.
The provision of Customer FOC, Freebies etc and non-payment of drinks is prohibited.
The Festival Host Responsibility policy MUST be adhered to, and failure to do so will result in the closure of the beverage Vendors site and forfeiture of any stock sold or used at the Festival up until that point.
Vendors must not consume alcohol onsite before, during or after the festival.
Make sure you have Enough Stock (of all line products) so you Don’t SELL OUT please!
Selling out will result in you likely not being invited back in the future, as it impacts negatively on customer experience and of course also the event and fellow Vendors.
