No Purchase Necessary to enter or win. A purchase will not improve your chances of winning.
A number of drawings for various prizes (the “Sweepstakes”) will be conducted by Small Business Expo LLC, a Florida limited liability company located at 110 E Broward Blvd, Suite 1700, Fort Lauderdale, FL 3301 (“Sponsor”, “we”, “us”, “our”) throughout the day at the Small Business Expo (the “Event”).
- Prizes. A list of all prizes and their approximate retail values (each “ARV”) will be available in our event app that you can download for free in your respective smart phone’s app store, at our Exhibitor Services registration desk at the Event, and also available by email when you email us at firstname.lastname@example.org (collectively, the “Prizes”). The total ARV of all Prizes offered as part of the Sweepstakes is up to but does not exceed Five Thousand Dollars ($5,000). Each Prize consists of only those items specifically listed as part of its description.
- Eligibility requirements. Only registered attendees of the Event or persons who otherwise submit a business card to us,
and who have the capacity to enter into a binding legal agreement with us, are eligible to enter the any of the
Sweepstakes. All other persons, including without limitation Sponsor’s agents, employees and/or officers (and their
immediate families) are ineligible to participate in any of the Sweepstakes. Void where prohibited.
- How to Enter: All Event registrants who register will have the opportunity to participate in the Small Business
Expo and collect “points” toward their participation. Participation can mean visiting exhibitor booths in the exhibitor hall, attending workshops and keynotes, chatting with exhibitors, scanning attendee badges and posting comments and liking comments in our app social fee. All participation is free and all points are free to earn. Points may not be purchased. Non-Event registrants may enter each Sweepstakes drawing by submitting their business card to our Client Services team by emailing email@example.com by no later than 10:30 AM on the date
of the Event.
- Drawing; Odds. The winner (“Winner”) of any of Sweepstakes prize (each, a “Prize”) will be determined by the number
of points an Event registrant has earned by their free participation in the Event. The drawings for each Prize will occur at designated times in the Event’s Keynote Theatre, Networking Happy Hour area or by email notification to the Winner at the completion of the Event (please refer to the Event’s app to find out the times and method of notification). Each Winner’s name will be announced at the Event or by an email notification after the conclusion of the Event. If the Winner is announced during the Event, a Winner needs to be present at the drawing to
win. If the initial Winner selected is not present at a drawing, then an alternate Winner will be selected by the same method from the pool of remaining entrants. The odds of winning each Sweepstakes depend on the number
of points received. There are usually (1-4) placed winners at each Event based on the number of free points earned. For
example, a First Place, Second Place, Third Place winner and so on. In the event of a tie (that is, two winners earned the
same number of points for that placed winner), then two prizes of lesser value will be awarded to replace that one prize to total the total value of the original prize. For clarification, if there are two tied winners each with 100 points and tie for the second place prize which in this example might be an Amazon Tablet valued at $200, then those two tied winners will receive a different prize valued at $100 each, making the total value of the two prizes $200 total. The new prize and eligibility is determined solely by us. Previous Winners from previous Events may not be a Winner again and will be excluded. Previous or current exhibitors in our Events may not be a Winner. Only one Winner allowed per company.
