Force majeure conditions include, amongst other, but not limited to, the following events: a) a natural disaster (fires, explosions, earthquakes, hurricane, flooding, storms, explosions, infestations), epidemic or pandemic; b) war, invasion, hostilities (whether war is declared or not), terrorist threats or acts, riot or other civil unrest; c) actions, embargoes or blockades in effect affecting the reasonable performance of this Agreement; d) action by any local or national governmental authority, including order, regulation or legal enactment; e) national or regional emergency; f) industrial action, trade dispute, strikes, labor stoppages or slowdowns or other industrial disturbances; g) shortage of adequate power or transportation facilities; h) any decisions or actions concerning the venue or other event, circumstance or cause that renders the occupation of the venue or the organisation of the event significantly more difficult and/or impossible; and i) any unforeseen events or circumstances having a similar impact.

The start of a force majeure, together with information on the cause thereof and its estimated duration, and end of a force majeure must be immediately notified to the other Party. The Party affected by force majeure shall immediately take reasonable steps to limit or minimise the consequences of such force majeure.
