By acceptance of the contract, Lessee covenants and agrees to indemnify and hold the Expo, its officers, employees, directors harmless from any and all liability for loss, injury, and damages to any person or persons or property that may be sustained by reason of occupancy and use of the Expo.
THIS INDEMNITY AND HOLD HARMLESS AGREEMENT SHALL APPLY WHETHER SUCH LOSS, INJURY, OR DAMAGE IS CAUSED IN PART BY THE EXPO, ITS OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, AND EMPLOYESS. IT IS THE EXPRESS INTENT OF THE PARTIES THAT, BY THE TERMS HEREOF, THE EXPO MAY BE INDEMNIFIED FOR THE CONSEQUENCES OF ITS OWN NEGLIGENCE.
Weapons, concealed or otherwise, are prohibited on the entire premises, parking areas, and any building, or portion of a building, whether leased or owned by the venues, even if otherwise permitted by Title 70 Article 4413 (29ee) Revised Civil Statutes of the State where Expo is being held.
“Weapon” is defined as shown in Chapter 46.01 (1-16) of the “participating states” Penal Code, and includes concealed handguns.
This prohibition shall not apply to a licensed security officer, a licensed peace officer, or a member of the armed forces or national guard or a guard employed by a penal institution or an officer of the court, when such a person is in the actual discharge of his official duties as such, nor shall it apply to unloaded guns for sale of display at a scheduled gun show event and checked and made safe at the door. Violations will be prosecuted in whatever manner provided by the law.
Normally, the use of the Expo will be booked on a first-come, first-served basis.
The following events will receive priority:
Conventions – Conventions utilizing the Expo may be given priority, and it should be understood that an event can be cancelled if a suitable alternate date is not open.
Every effort will be made to resolve such a problem to the satisfaction of all concerned.
Renewal of Annual Events – A Lessee wishing to renew an annual event, which utilizes a major area of the Expo will be given the opportunity to re-book its dates upon completion of its event.
Annual renewal may not necessarily be the same date the following year. Renewal must be done within 30 days after completion of the event.
The Expo Director reserves the right to utilize all rental areas within the Expo. When booking conflicts arise, final say is the responsibility of the Expo Director.
