4. Sweepstakes Period
The Sweepstakes begins at the official start of the Travel & Adventure Show (the “Sweepstakes Period”). Entries that are submitted before or after the Sweepstakes Period will be disqualified. Submissions will be accepted online for the duration of the Sweepstakes Period.
5. How to Enter:
The Sweepstakes must be entered by submitting an entry using the online form provided through a QR code on signage posted at the Travel & Adventure Show. The QR code leads to an entry form that asks for first name, last name, email address and zip code. The entry must fulfill all Sweepstakes requirements, as specified, to be eligible to win a prize. Entries that are not complete or do not adhere to the rules or specifications may be disqualified at the sole discretion of the Sponsor. You may enter only once, and you must fill in all information requested. Limit one (1) entry per person, per email address, and per household for the duration of the Sweepstakes Period. Entries received from any person, e-mail address, or household in excess of the stated limitation will be void. All entries become the property of Sponsor and will not be acknowledged or returned.
6. Prize Drawing
On or about two weeks after the official conclusion of the Travel & Adventure Show, the Sponsor will select one potential winner in a random drawing from among all eligible entries received. The odds of being selected depend on the number of entries received. The Sponsor will attempt to notify the potential winner via email provided in the entry form on or about two weeks after the official conclusion of the Travel & Adventure Show. If the potential winner cannot be contacted within two (2) days after the date of the first attempt to contact him/her, the winner forfeits the prize, and no other prize will be awarded in its place. If the potential winner cannot be contacted within two (2) days, the Sponsor may select an alternate potential winner in his/her place at random from the remaining non-winning, eligible entries.
7. Winner Notification
The potential winner will be notified by the email provided in the entry form. Sponsor shall have no liability for a winner’s failure to receive notices due to winners’ spam, junk e-mail or other security settings or for winner’s provision of incorrect or otherwise non-functioning contact information. The receipt by winner of the prize offered in this Sweepstakes is conditioned upon compliance with all federal and state laws and regulations. Any violation of these official rules by a winner (in the Sponsor’s sole discretion) will result in such winner’s disqualification as winner of the Sweepstakes and all privileges as winner will be immediately terminated. If the potential winner is at least 18 but still considered a minor in his/her jurisdiction of residence, Sponsor reserves the right to award the prize in the name of his/her parent or legal guardian, who will be required to fulfill any requirements imposed on the winner set forth herein. Potential winners must continue to comply with all terms and conditions of these Official Rules and winning is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements. In the event that a potential winner is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor will award the applicable prize to an alternate winner by random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries. Only one (1) alternate drawing will be held, after which the prize will remain un-awarded.
The specifics of the prize shall be solely determined by the Sponsor. No cash or other prize substitution permitted except at Sponsor’s sole discretion. The prize is nontransferable. Any and all prize related expenses, including without limitation any and all federal, state, and/or local taxes shall be the sole responsibility of the winner. No transfer/assignment of prize to others or request for the cash equivalent by winners is permitted. Sponsor reserves the right, but has no obligation, to substitute a prize of equal or greater value should any featured prize become unavailable. Acceptance of prize constitutes permission for Sponsor to use winner’s name, likeness, and entry for purposes of advertising, promotion and trade without further compensation, unless prohibited by law. Winner must sign any documents and releases that may be requested by the Sponsor, which must be returned along with valid proof of age within the time specified by Sponsor, or an alternate winner for the prize may be chosen.
