Terms and Conditions

The Twelfth International Conference on Remediation of Chlorinated and Recalcitrant Compounds (2020 Chlorinated Conference) is organized and presented by Battelle (505 King Avenue., Columbus, OH 43201). By completing and submitting the information below, the individual submitting this agreement verifies that he or she is authorized to execute this agreement on behalf of the Sponsoring organization and that he or she has read, understands, and agrees to the Terms & Conditions of this Agreement. Battelle retains the exclusive right to control all aspects of the Conference and reserves the right to accept or deny sponsorship eligibility of any organization for any reason. Conference sponsorship does not imply endorsement of any product or service of sponsoring organizations by Battelle or the Chlorinated Conference.

In exchange for the benefits of the Sponsorship category selected, the sponsoring organization agrees to pay the associated fee(s) according to the payment schedule below. If you would like to request a different payment schedule, please contact Susie Warner (swarner@scgcorp.com | 301-670-4990). All fees must be paid prior in full by March 2, 2020. Early Exhibit booth selection may be denied to qualifying Conference Sponsors until initial payment is received. Separate Exhibitor Terms and Conditions apply to sponsoring organizations that choose to exhibit. If the Chlorinated Conference is unable to provide any of the sponsor benefits for any reason, the sponsoring organization will be informed as soon as reasonably possible and Conference management reserves the right, as determined by us, to substitute comparable benefits.
