In order to ensure consistency between all IFSC Events and showcase event’s key stakeholders, the IFSC has defined the Event Branding guidelines, into the same document. 

Main event’s key stakeholders are:   
•   The IFSC
•   The Event Organiser
•   IFSC Sponsors
•   Event Organiser’s Sponsors  

With specific regards to the Olympic Qualifying Event, the IFSC is going to design a unique Graphic Charter, to maximise the value of the event. The space allocation is regulated by the Event Branding document, but the design will be different. 

The Event Organiser shall sent to the IFSC all the EO sponsors logo, as for the Global Timeline.  The IFSC is the responsible body to design the Graphic Charter of the event. A deposit of 1500 € shall be paid by the Event Organiser to the IFSC at the signature of this Agreement. This deposit will be returned to the organisers if the material included into the Event Branding is correctly produced and fully displayed during the event. 

It is responsibility of the Event Organiser to ensure the printing of all the elements described into the Event Branding document, and to borne the costs associated to it. 

Additional materials can be produced by the Event Organiser. These additional materials will be in line with the Event Branding and be validated by the IFSC prior to the Event. No other documents than the ones validated by the IFSC can be used on the Event.

In case the Event Organiser does not provide the required information in due time and/or does not use the proper and validated materials during the event, the IFSC will apply a sanction as for "other expenses" section.
