5. Price and programme are subject to change.
The client is liable to the hotel for loss and damage caused by the client, his helpers or the participants without the hotel being obliged to prove blame. The hotel accepts no liability for the theft of and damage to materials brought into the hotel by the organiser, participants, speakers or third parties.
7. Applicable law, place of jurisdiction
Swiss law applies to the legal relationship between the client and the hotel. The invalidity of individual provisions of the contractual relationship does not lead to the invalidity of the entire contract. Bern is agreed as the place of jurisdiction but the hotel remains at liberty to bring an action at the defendant's place of residence.
