I understand and acknowledge that such exposure or infection may result in serious illness, personal injury, permanent disability, death, or property damage. I acknowledge that this risk may result from or be compounded by the actions, omissions, or negligence of others, including, without limitation, the Company, its employees and exhibitors and their staff. I understand that while the Company takes reasonable measures to follow all federal, state, and local laws, orders, directives and guidelines related to the Disease the Company cannot guarantee that I will not become infected with the Disease or other infectious diseases while on the Premises and that being on the Premises may increase my risk of contracting the Disease.

I UNDERSTAND THAT IF I DO NOT COMPLY WITH THESE GUIDELINES OR REFUSE TO COMPLY, I WILL NOT BE ALLOWED INTO THE EVENT.
I am participating in the Electrify Expo at my own volition and am responsible for my own health. The Company is in no way liable for any present or future Disease incurred at any time by any person, INCLUDING MYSELF, in attendance or not in attendance, before, during or after the Electrify Expo event that I Attend and Participate.
