Dealers need only sign up once and this agreement will remain in effect until terminated byone of the parties. Dealers will have purchased the same location at every showheld in a particular venue. If the permanent location cannot be provided,Dealer will have the option to cancel at no charge. In order to terminate this agreement, written notice is required to be given by either party 90 days inadvance of a two-day show. Greenberg’s Great Train & Toy Show will advise Dealers of shows, price, and other policy changes at least 120 days in advance of any two-day show and at least 60 days in advance of any one-day show. Thisis the only way to get the same location at every show.
