As a condition of placing any order with Meeting Tomorrow, you agree to the following terms and conditions. The terms “Meeting Tomorrow,” “Provider,” “we” or “our” refer to Meeting Tomorrow, Inc. The terms “Client,” “you” or “yours” refer to the customer ordering Meeting Tomorrow services, equipment rentals, or products. All orders placed by you or the authorized credit card users will be subject to these terms and conditions, unless otherwise agreed by both you and Meeting Tomorrow in writing, and acceptance of any orders by you is conditional upon your agreement of these terms and conditions.
Scope of Services
Client is partnering with Meeting Tomorrow to support their technology or audio visual needs as detailed in this Agreement and the order confirmation for the rental. This solution is provided for temporary use by Client and should be returned to Meeting Tomorrow in the same condition it was received at the end of the rental period. Meeting Tomorrow guarantees that the equipment will be delivered in working condition prior to the rental duration.
While the equipment is onsite at your delivery location, it is your responsibility to ensure that the equipment is not stolen, damaged, or otherwise harmed. You agree to use the equipment in a careful and proper manner and you shall not use the equipment in any way that is inconsistent with its intended use. You are responsible for paying repair or replacement fees associated with any loss or theft of, or damages to, the equipment while the equipment is at the delivery location to the extent that the damage is not covered by Accidental Damage Coverage or Theft Coverage if you have purchased either coverage option. Equipment must be returned to Meeting Tomorrow in its original state and usable by Meeting Tomorrow. You are responsible to either help resolve the issue or pay for a full replacement of the equipment if the equipment is returned not in its original state. This also applies to equipment returned to Meeting Tomorrow with its software in an unusable state (e.g. with Apple iCloud Activation Lock or Jailbroken). Client is responsible for both the equipment requested as well as all supplemental equipment provided including, but not limited to, spare equipment, charging adapters and protective cases.
The equipment rental period begins the day after the equipment is delivered, or the day after the first delivery attempt is made. It is not Meeting Tomorrow’s responsibility if the delivery service (e.g. FedEx) is unable to deliver to your requested delivery address. After the length of your rental period is completed, the equipment package and provided prepaid return shipping label must be received and scanned by FedEx on or before the listed return date. It is your responsibility to return the gear to your local, authorized FedEx location, or schedule a FedEx pick-up service. If the return label is not received and scanned by FedEx, a late fee will be automatically charged. Late fees will be charged weekly until the provided return label is scanned by FedEx, proof that the equipment has been shipped back to Meeting Tomorrow is provided, or Meeting Tomorrow receives the rental equipment. If equipment is not returned, weekly late fees will be automatically charged until the replacement cost of the equipment and supplemental equipment on your order is recouped in full. Please refer to your order confirmation for the return date or call Meeting Tomorrow directly for any questions you have on returning your rental. You may also visit www.meetingtomorrow.com/returns.
Meeting Tomorrow will provide, to the best of our ability, rental equipment with features and specifications within the range described on our website. However, equipment features and specifications are not guaranteed. Additionally, equipment may be automatically upgraded to different features and specifications based on Meeting Tomorrow’s inventory availability. Meeting Tomorrow is not responsible for the compatibility of the equipment rented pursuant to this agreement with any equipment supplied by you or a third party with whom you contracted.

Meeting Tomorrow reserves the right to delay or cancel an order if sufficient information cannot be provided to verify the legitimacy of your business or organization. Orders will be refunded in full if Meeting Tomorrow cancels your order.
In consideration for the services, equipment rentals, and/or products you order from Meeting Tomorrow, you agree to pay the total fees due as listed on your order confirmation. You also authorize Meeting Tomorrow to charge the credit card on file for all outstanding payments and fees in accordance with this Agreement upon the end of the rental period specified in this Agreement, including but not limited to charges for optional services, rental extensions, and Meeting Tomorrow’s expenses associated with loss of, or damage to the equipment. Applicable use or other transaction taxes imposed on you by any third parties in connection with your order or rental of the equipment or rendering of services are solely your responsibility to report and pay.
No refund will be available for cancellation of the event. All fees remain billable and due.
