A second promoter may challenge the first producer’s existing hold by submitting a non-refundable deposit in the amount of half of the minimum rent. The first promoter with the hold will be given 48 hours in which to confirm or release the date. If the first producer fails to respond to the challenge the date will be automatically released by the Forum after 48 hours. If the challenger obtains the first hold‚ the deposit will be applied toward the rent. If the challenger obtains the date but fails to use it‚ he or she forfeits the deposit.
