RELEASE OF LIABILITY
Activity Organizer: Auto Dealers Association of Greater Philadelphia (“Sponsor”)
Activity Description: Electric Vehicle Ride (“Activity”) with 2024 Philadelphia Auto Show exhibitors (“Exhibitors”)
In consideration of being allowed to participate in the Activity, IF I OR THE PERSON FOR WHOM I AM SIGNING THIS CONTRACT IS INJURED participating in the Activity or while present on the property of the Pennsylvania Convention Center (the “PCC”) during the 2024 Philadelphia Auto Show, I AGREE TO BE LEGALLY BOUND by the promises set forth below for myself, my spouse, my children, my parents, my heirs, assigns, personal representatives and estate. I understand that the term “Sponsor” includes the Sponsor identified above, its members, officers, directors, agents, servants, and employees and, for the purposes of this Release, the Pennsylvania Convention Center Authority, ASM Global, General Exposition Services, PECO Energy Company, its officers, directors, employees, agents, servants and representatives (collectively, the “Additional Sponsor”), the City of Philadelphia, and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
I WILL NOT SUE the Sponsor or the Additional Sponsor.
I FOREVER RELEASE AND DISCHARGE the Sponsor and the Additional Sponsor from any and all liability for any such injury.
I WILL INDEMNIFY AND HOLD HARMLESS the Sponsor and the Additional Sponsor from any loss, liability, damage, or cost of any kind that may occur as a result of the injury, or in enforcing this Contract, including attorneys’ fees and costs.
I AGREE THAT THE ABOVE PROMISES ARE LEGALLY BINDING even if I contend that my injuries are wholly or partly the result of NEGLIGENCE or other CONDUCT on the part of the Sponsor or the Additional Sponsor for which a release is not contrary to public policy.
I voluntarily ASSUME THE RISK OF INJURY OR EVEN DEATH while participating in the Activity or entering the PCC. If I am injured, I authorize Sponsor to provide, but Sponsor is not required to provide, EMERGENCY FIRST AID and any medical or first aid personnel to provide MEDICAL CARE until such time as I or someone authorized by my medical care power of attorney or otherwise by law is able to act on my behalf.
I understand that the Activity may be INHERENTLY DANGEROUS and involves risks that could result in physical or emotional injury, paralysis, death or property damage.
I recognize my responsibility to INSPECT the facilities connected with the Activity, to exercise GOOD JUDGMENT, to ACT RESPONSIBLY, and to OBEY all of Sponsor's, Additional Sponsor's and Exhibitors’ oral or written guidance, instructions (including signage), and warnings. I will communicate the guidance, instructions and warnings to minor Activity participants as their parent or guardian.
I AGREE that the promises set forth above also apply to any LOSS OF OR DAMAGE to any of my belongings for which Sponsor or the Additional Sponsor may be legally liable in connection with the Activity.
I release to Sponsor and the Additional Sponsor and authorize Sponsor and the Additional Sponsor to produce, reproduce, broadcast, and otherwise use PHOTOS, VIDEOS, and other depictions, likenesses, or images of me, in any media form in connection with my attendance at or participation in the Activity, without compensation, for an unlimited duration.
This Contract will be governed by Pennsylvania law regardless of conflict of law rules. If I file a lawsuit against Sponsor or the Additional Sponsor, I will file it only in Montgomery or Philadelphia Counties in that Commonwealth. If any part of this Contract is found to be void and unenforceable, the remaining portions shall remain in full force and effect.
I am 18 YEARS OF AGE OR MORE or I am SIGNING AS PARENT OR GUARDIAN of a minor child with the consent of the other parent or guardian (if any). I understand that I may be giving up the rights of my child and spouse to sue as well as giving up my own right to sue. I have read and understood these promises and am VOLUNTARILY signing below INTENDING TO BE LEGALLY BOUND.
