  2. Sessions are selected independently of any Showcase / Supplier relationship you may have with ExerciseNZ/REPs/FitEx.
  3. The selection panel may include some, none or all of your submitted sessions.  While we would love to include all sessions this is not possible. We will supply a speakers agreement once they panel have selected your sessions offering specific details on the agreement and what each party is agreeing to.   NB: We don't make payment for sessions, BUT we do either to book your flights, provide onsite accommodation and NZ transfers (the most common scenario) or  make a contribution towards travel costs.  The options are outlined in the speakers agreement before you sign it. (so there is clarity for both parties as to the expectations.
