Further claims of the visitors are excluded, unless the organizer is guilty of intent or gross negligence.
4.a If a restriction declared by the federal or state level applies to the event period, which makes the implementation of the event impossible, the contract is subject to the resolutory condition that
– the holding of the event would be prohibited one month before its contractually agreed start due to governmental measures on the occasion of the Corona pandemic.
The decisive factor is the prohibition on holding any events on the above-mentioned cut-off date; it is irrelevant whether the event is feasible on the agreed date [example: the condition subsequent occurs if an event planned for 01.10.2020 could not take place on 01.09.2020 due to a general ruling].
