I was under the impression refridgerating fondant was a no-no. I have heard of people wrapping it in saran and then defrosting it so the condensation is on the outside.

I would put it in front of a fan, if possible, to help the moisture evaporate. HTH

Can you make the transition to the warmer room a little gentler/slower? Maybe set the cake in a corrugated box because that provides a bit of insulation. Do you have a cooler room?

I have had this happen once but it was for a family cake. It does stop.
It is scary. It's gonna be ok.

Try to appear to take it in stride in front of the customer and just say, "Oh it happens, and it will dry off."

Or if it has slown down--just don't mention it. It happens. It's ok.
