IN-PERSON ATTENDEE WAIVER AND RELEASE OF LIABILITY
I, the undersigned, desire to attend TEXPO 2024 (the “Event”) in person, of my own free will and for my own benefit. I am 18 years of age or older, of sound mind, and understand and agree to the terms of this Waiver and Release of Liability (the “Release”). I have been afforded the opportunity to review the contents of this Release with an attorney of my choosing if I believed it was necessary to do so, and am under no legal obligation whatsoever to attend the Event in person. I am free to decline, now or in the future, to attend the Event in person and understand that a virtual attendance option is available.
I understand and acknowledge that in-person attendance at the Event may expose me to contact with one or more persons or objects that have been infected with, and/or exposed to, the virus commonly known as COVID-19 or the coronavirus (the “Virus”). I understand that, as a result, my-in-person attendance at the Event may expose me to a risk of exposure to or infection with the Virus. I understand that medical research regarding the potential for infection with and harm caused by the Virus are ongoing, and that no widely accepted vaccine against or cure for the Virus is currently available.
As a result, I understand that the potential risks associated with exposure to or infection with the Virus are not fully known, but may include significant and serious illness, bodily injury, disfigurement, temporary or permanent disability, and/or death. I understand that personal protective equipment (“PPE”) to reduce the chances of exposure to or infection with the Virus may not be readily available for my participation in the Event and that the use of PPE may not fully protect against or mitigate the risk posed by the Event. I understand and agree that TEXPO 2024, ATTA or the affiliated regional Treasury associations may not, and is under no legal duty to, provide me with any PPE.
Nevertheless, having considered the risks of in-person attendance at the Event, including those outlined in this Release, I have determined that I desire to participate in the Event, of my own free will. Accordingly, for good and valuable consideration, including without limitation the opportunity to attend the Event in person, I HEREBY ASSUME ALL OF THE RISKS OF ATTENDING THE EVENT IN-PERSON, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION THE RISK THAT I MAY BE EXPOSED TO OR BECOME INFECTED WITH THE VIRUS. I HEREBY, FOR MYSELF AND MY HEIRS, SUCCESSORS, AND ASSIGNS, AND ALL THOSE CLAIMING BY OR THROUGH ME, WAIVE, RELEASE, AND AGREE TO DEFEND, INDEMNIFY, AND HOLD HARMLESS TEXPO 2024 AND ITS AGENTS, EMPLOYEES, OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, DONORS , AND AFFILIATES (COLLECTIVELY, “INDEMNITEES”) FROM AND AGAINST ANY LIABILITY, LOSS, EXPENSE, OR OTHER DAMAGE-INCLUDING PERSONAL INJURIES, PROPERTY DAMAGE, DEATH, COSTS OF COURT, AND ATTORNEY’S FEES –ARISING FROM OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE EVENT, INCLUDING THOSE WHICH ARISE OR ARE ALLEGED TO ARISE FROM THE NEGLICENCE OF ANY INDEMNITEE.
