In addition, by submitting an entry form, you agree to “opt-in” to receive e-mails from Sponsor and Sponsor’s exhibitors regarding future Bridal & Wedding Expos in your area and/or other promotion/marketing information. (You may opt-out at any time. You are advised to consult Sponsor’s privacy policy at any one of the Sponsor’s websites for information regarding Sponsor’s information collection and usage practices.  If you have already “opted-in” to receive Sponsor's e-mails, you may still enter the Sweepstakes.)

  1. RESTRICTIONS ON ENTRY: Limit of one (1) entry per person during the Sweepstakes Period. (A given e-mail address may only be used by one (1) person to enter the Sweepstakes.) Use of any artifice or method to violate this entry limit (e.g., multiple e-mail addresses) and/or the use of automated or programmed means to enter will result in disqualification of all entries. In the event of a dispute over the identity of an entrant, entry will be deemed submitted by the authorized account holder of the e-mail account used to enter the Sweepstakes, as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion.  Proof of submission of entry form does not constitute proof of receipt or proof of entry. Receipt of entries may be acknowledged, but such acknowledgment merely indicates that entry form has been received. Without limiting the foregoing, such acknowledgment does not constitute any representation as to Sweepstakes eligibility nor is it otherwise binding upon Sponsor.  For the avoidance of doubt, entries in previous “Bridal & Wedding Expo Sweepstakes” sponsored by American Consumer Shows, LLC will not count for this Sweepstakes: even if you entered a “Bridal & Wedding Expo” Sweepstakes in the past, you must enter this Sweepstakes for a chance to win the prize.
  2. RANDOM DRAWING: Potential winner will be selected in a random drawing comprised of all eligible entries received. The drawing will be conducted by Sponsor on or about 5/7/2018. Potential winner will be notified by e-mail or phone and must complete, sign and return an Affidavit of Eligibility, an IRS W-9 Form, a Liability Release, and a Publicity Release (where legal), within five (5) business days of date of prize notification. Non-compliance with this requirement, if potential winner cannot be contacted after Sponsor’s reasonable attempts to do so, or if potential winner is determined to be ineligible (or otherwise in violation of these Official Rules) will result in disqualification and prize forfeiture without compensation of any kind. And, in such event, an alternate potential winner will be selected via random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries received.   
  3. PRIZE/ODDS OF WINNING: Prize (1) – $5,000 credit with an exhibitor of winner’s choice from among those exhibitors who exhibited at Sponsor's Bridal & Wedding Expo which took place nearest winner's residence during Sweepstakes Period and who are available at time of prize award (applicable Bridal & Wedding Expo and available exhibitors to be determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion).

Credit may be subject to terms and conditions of use imposed by exhibitor, including expiration date; credit is not redeemable or exchangeable for cash. Any unused portion of credit will not be refunded. Conversely, if exhibitor product or service cost exceeds $5,000, any amount in excess of $5,000 will be the sole responsibility of prize winner.  All unspecified costs and expenses associated with prize acceptance/use are winner’s sole responsibility.  Taxes on prize are also the winner’s sole responsibility. Winner will be issued an IRS 1099 Tax Form for the total value of the prize and winner agrees to fully cooperate with Sponsor relative to compliance with all applicable governmental reporting requirements (including completion of IRS W9 Form with his/her Social Security Number, upon request).
