Job City is part of Fairtual Technologies. Fairtual Technologies BV is a 100% Belgian company. Our shareholders are Belgians, born and bred, and we do not have any interference from other parties.
We start from a mission. A mission to market virtual events and showrooms. We believe in a hybrid future where live (physical) and virtual (digital) can go hand in hand and reinforce each other. We also believe that digital communication is an undeniable part of the communication mix. Transparency, customer-friendliness and flexibility are things we value highly. How do we do that? With clear and useful advice, clear communication and all that… with a smile. Because that is how we make the difference.

We are happy customers of Belfius under the account number IBAN: BE54 0689 3692 0397
Ons team – onze specialisten:
We work with a team of specialists. Specialists that we use for our clients to make their event or project a success. Discover our staff on our team page via our website.
They are ready to help you every day.
2.1 Our prices will always be communicated in advance in as complete and clear a manner as possible. With the exception of specific customisation, you always know in advance how much you will pay.
2.2 Clear offers and price agreements are made, so that the price is clear and transparent in advance. The offers always remain valid for 14 days.
2.3 An offer (in the form of an offer) is considered to have been accepted following an explicit or implicit acceptance by you. This acceptance also means that you have read our General Terms and Conditions (in their entirety) and agree to them. We always ask you to digitally sign the offer(s). That saves everyone a lot of work and paper.
2.4 An explicit acceptance means that you clearly indicate in no uncertain terms that you agree with the offer (the quotation), and that the work may be commenced. With implicit acceptance, you take some action from which it can be inferred that you agree to the offer (e.g. forwarding certain items we need to start working on an order, or paying an advance).
2.5 As soon as an order is accepted, the activities are started. A project is created and planned, the administrative framework is set up, internal briefings take place, … After this acceptance, you will no longer be able to cancel free of charge. If you still wish to cancel, this is of course possible. In case of a cancellation more than 1 month before the start of the event, you pay 50% of the total cost (even if certain works or other items have not yet been carried out). In case of a cancellation less than 1 month before the start of the event, you pay 75% of the total cost (even if certain works or other items have not yet been carried out).
2.6 Deadlines are important when organising an event. We will always clearly discuss the deadlines associated with the assignments with you. We strive to meet 100% of our deadlines.
2.7 Since communication is important, we feel it is necessary to make clear agreements (deadlines) in this regard. Thus, every project (event) is managed by our project manager(s). The Project Manager is the pivotal figure who manages the activities of the Art Director, the IT Manager, the 3D Designer and the Marketing Manager. These people should not be contacted directly by you, so that they can focus on their job. If you contact one of those employees directly, the time spent doing so will be charged at an hourly rate. So keep this in mind. On the other hand, it may happen that one of these employees contacts you himself, in which case this obviously does not apply (as far as these contacts are concerned).
3.1 Fixed costs
For most cases we work with “fixed costs”. That way, you as a customer know exactly what you are getting into and can budget perfectly for your event. For example, fixed costs are charged for renting a stand, a pavilion, a conference room and so on.
The fixed costs (together with any other costs) are stated in the quotation and are essentially unchangeable.
3.2 Variable costs
We also have “variable costs”. The level of our variable costs depends on the level of our fixed costs. We distinguish two variable costs.
First, there are the costs related to project management. This is the support that our people offer you during the preparation and the live days of your event. The costs for project management always amount to 25% of the fixed costs.
We also have a variable eco-premium. Fairtual Technologies is an ecological company that is climate-conscious. The carbon footprint of our organisation on 01/01/2021 was only 8,488.83 kg. In order to include our CO² emissions in their biomass, we want to plant around 500 trees every year. We share the costs for this with our customers. We therefore apply a variable cost of 1% of the fixed costs and the custom work.
3.3 Hourly rates – customised (or other)
In cases where we work on an hourly basis, such as custom work for example, we charge an hourly rate of EUR 150 excl. VAT.
For example, if you ask us to customise a booth or develop an additional feature, we will initially estimate the number of hours (or days) we will need for this development(s). You will then receive an offer, which will specify a number of hours (or days or a fixed rate). Please note that this is always an estimate. This means that there is either more work or less work and therefore more or less can be invoiced respectively.
Our people are now capable of making correct estimates, but it sometimes happens that our customers ask for additional adjustments or do not provide the things we need for development.
3.4 Travel costs
As an ecological company, we do not like to travel. Travel also means that we cannot work in the office, so we charge travel expenses of 0.75 € / km (including travel time). Since we cannot take into account any travel expenses “to be incurred” in the quotation phase, travel expenses are not included in the quotation. They are invoiced afterwards.
We always invoice in at least 3 times.
A first invoice of 40% of the approved offer amount will be invoiced within the week following the signing of the offer.
The second invoice is sent at least 4 weeks before the start of the event / project and amounts to 30% of the approved offer amount.
The third invoice shall be sent at least 2 weeks before the start of the event / project and shall amount to 30% (or the balance) of the approved offer amount.
If there are still things to be settled after the event, this invoice will be sent immediately after the event / project.
The standard payment term is 14 days from the invoice date. If you wish to obtain an extended payment period, this must be previously approved in writing by the Managing Director of Fairtual Technologies, Mr Diego Dupont. Reference to your own payment terms or general terms and conditions will not be accepted.
3.7 What if you have not paid within the payment period stated under 3.5
Good agreements make the best friends, also with us. We make every effort to make your event / project a success. The respect that we demand in return is the correct payment of our invoices.
If an invoice has not been paid by the due date (invoice date + 14 days), you will receive a friendly reminder asking you to pay the invoice within 7 days.
If you have not paid within 7 days, you will receive a second reminder on the 21st day after the invoice date. Herein you are again requested to pay the invoice within 7 days.
If you still have not paid on the 28th day, we will assume that it is not an omission. The work will then be temporarily halted until you have paid all outstanding invoices. If any other invoices need to be made out, these will also be made out and are immediately payable, notwithstanding any work or other matters not yet carried out.
We would like to make three observations:
⦁ Do not wait until the due date has passed and you receive a reminder. Conversely, you can also expect us to be proactive and to keep to the agreements / deadlines;
⦁ In any case, make sure that the first 3 invoices are paid before the start of the event / project. We keep the digital doors closed on outstanding invoices;
⦁ Do you have an unexpected problem paying an invoice? Then talk to us! We are people and entrepreneurs among ourselves and always find a solution.
If an invoice has been outstanding for more than 45 days, we will put you in default. A conventional penalty clause will then be charged equal to 10% of the outstanding amount, as well as interest of 1% per started month.
3.8 What if you do not agree with an invoice received?
We try to avoid them, of course, but occasionally you will have a complaint. No problem, of course!
It suffices to send a reasoned and clear e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, within 8 days after the problem has been detected, to inform us.
We will immediately do everything possible to solve the problem.
Please note that formulating such a complaint does not mean that your payment obligations are suspended!
3.9 Cancellation of event
You will, of course, have the opportunity to cancel the offer (the Agreement) free of charge within seven (7) days of signing it. In other cases of cancellation, you will owe us a cancellation fee as stated below:
– in the event of cancellation sixty (60) days or more before the commencement date of the Event as determined by you: 50% of the Fee;
– in the event of cancellation between sixty (60) and thirty (30) days or before the commencement date of the Event as determined by you: 75% of the Fee;
– in the event of cancellation less than thirty (30) days before the starting date of the Event: 100% of the Fee plus cancellation costs of € 2,500 (two thousand, five hundred euros).
4.1 With every order, we have one clear goal in mind: a satisfied customer. We are therefore using all possible means to achieve this goal. We always do this at our own discretion and rely on our own experience and expertise to do so in an informed way. This means that we can also call on experts who are not affiliated with us when we think it would be appropriate to do so.
4.2 We love innovation and digitalisation. So we also use innovative and digital applications to make certain processes faster or easier. We expect you to accept and understand the use of the applications we use.
4.3 We aim for satisfied customers. However, we do not believe in cooperation where everything comes from one side. We always try to work with you towards the desired result. This means that we also count on your cooperation.
4.4 Due to the specific nature of our activities, all undertakings entered into between us and you must be regarded as obligations of means. Due to the nature of our activities, it is impossible for us to commit ourselves to results.
To clarify: An obligation of means is an obligation whereby the performer of the works guarantees the client that he will use all possible and available means to achieve a certain result. In the case of a guarantee or result commitment, the order can only be regarded as successful if the pre-defined result is actually achieved (this is possible, for example, in the construction of a house, but not in our activities).
4.6 It is always our goal to build a healthy and lasting relationship with you. However, if it appears that due to certain circumstances further cooperation has become impossible, we are entitled to terminate the contract unilaterally.
4.7 The intellectual rights applicable to all items developed by us always remain our full property. You always receive a non-exclusive and non-transferable right of use. This also means that you may only use these items for the purposes communicated beforehand.
4.8 We take responsibility. We accept liability for any culpable major or frequent minor fault that may have occurred in the execution of paid orders.
If you believe you have found such an error, please send an e-mail to email@example.com within 8 days of this finding. We will then make every effort to rectify this error within a reasonable period of time.
Should we not be able to correct our mistake, we accept liability for the damage that is a direct consequence of this mistake. Of course, we cannot be held liable for any non-direct damages such as consequential damages, loss of profit or increase in general costs (this list is obviously not exhaustive).
The damage for which we can be held liable can never exceed:
⦁ The total invoiced amount excl. VAT (which has been paid);
⦁ The amount for which we are insured according to our professional liability policy (Axa – No. 010.730.530.920 up to an amount of EUR 125,000).
As we are not shirking our responsibilities, we expect the same from you. As a customer of ours, you shall always take the necessary measures to safeguard us from damages that are due to your own shortcomings. In particular, you will have to meet the deadlines that we set.
4.9 Of course, force majeure can never be excluded. Neither for you nor for us. This means that if an external cause arises that makes the further performance of the agreement temporarily impossible for one of the parties, the agreement can be suspended for a period of up to 90 days. If the force majeure still exists after this period, the agreement may be definitively terminated.
If such a circumstance arises, the party prevented from doing so shall notify the other party in writing of the nature of the force majeure within 8 days of the first day on which it is established.
5.1 Fairtual Technologies BV is a thoroughly Belgian company. This means that only Belgian law is applicable to the agreements we enter into. Disputes will be settled by Arbitration. This means that all disputes arising from this agreement or any agreements resulting from it shall be settled by an arbitration tribunal, consisting of one or three independent and impartial arbitrators chosen from the pool of www.arbiters.be. In the absence of agreement between the parties, the appointment and/or replacement shall be made by the list manager. The arbitral tribunal shall organise the proceedings and estimate the (commission for the) arbitration costs. This clause replaces all other competence clauses.
5.2 These General Terms and Conditions apply exclusively to any agreement entered into by us. The existence of additional or different terms and conditions of a contracting party other than ourselves is expressly excluded. Deviation from these General Terms and Conditions is only possible if both parties have agreed to it in writing in advance.
5.3 If any provision of these General Terms and Conditions proves to be invalid, this does not mean that the entire General Terms and Conditions are invalid. The provisions not affected by nullity shall therefore remain fully effective and applicable.
5.4 We shall be entitled to engage specialised third parties in the performance of our assignments, and may transfer obligations arising from agreements we have concluded to such third parties at our discretion.
5.5 Once a contract has been concluded, we are entitled to refer to the existence (and contents) of the contract in our commercial and promotional activities.
In making such references, we may use protected and non-protected trade names and signs of you and your exhibitors or other users of our platforms. Naturally, under no circumstances will sensitive information about you or users of our platforms be made public. You will inform third parties (exhibitors, speakers or other stakeholders) of this and let us know if anyone objects.
5.6 As mentioned above, we are a company that works with both internal and external employees (both employees and freelancers – whether partners or not). Our hourly rates are listed in our costs. These hourly rates are rates that apply if we are the contracting party. We always agree with you that you will not contract directly with our staff. If you do so anyway (being invoiced directly by one of our employees), we will charge you an outsourcing fee equal to 35% of the rate you paid (or were charged) to or by this employee. You get the picture…
