I understand and acknowledge that COVID-19 has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the State of California, World Health Organization and has been classified by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as a highly contagious disease that can be transmitted asymptomatically and can lead to severe illness and death. I recognize that an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 and other infectious illnesses exists in any place where people are present and that the risk of becoming exposed to or infected by COVID-19 at The NAMM Show may result from the actions, omissions, or negligence of others who may attend the event or their families, colleagues, or others with whom they may have contact.

CHOICE OF LAW

I understand and agree that the law of California will apply to this Assumption of Risk, Release, and Waiver of Liability (“Release and Waiver”), regardless of that jurisdiction’s choice of law provisions. I understand that this Release and Waiver is intended to be as broad and inclusive as is permitted by law, and that if any portion of this Release and Waiver is held invalid, the remainder will continue in full legal force and effect. This Release and Waiver shall extend to and be binding upon me and my estate, heirs, executors, administrators, and personal representatives.
