NO PURCHASE NECESSARY
SWEEPSTAKES DESCRIPTION: The AGTA GemFair™ Sweepstakes (the “Sweepstakes”) takes place during regular show hours of the AGTA GemFair™ Las Vegas (the “Show”) from May 30, 2019 to June 2, 2019 (the “Sweepstakes Period”). The Sweepstakes Period consists of four (4) separate daily entry periods (each, an “Entry Period”) wherein one (1) winner will be selected from among all eligible entries received between the scheduled start of the Show each day during the Sweepstakes and 3:59 p.m. Pacific Time each day of the Sweepstakes Period. You must enter each day of the Sweepstakes Period to be eligible for the drawing associated with each Entry Period. Non-winning entries WILL NOT rollover to subsequent Entry Periods. Entry in the Sweepstakes does not constitute entry into any other promotion, contest or sweepstakes. By participating in the Sweepstakes, each entrant unconditionally accepts and agrees to comply with and abide by these Official Rules and the decisions of American Gem Trade Association, 3030 LBJ Freeway, Suite 840, Dallas, TX 75234 (“Sponsor”), which shall be final and binding in all respects.
ELIGIBILITY: Open only to registered buyers attending the AGTA GemFair™ Las Vegas. Employees, officers and directors of Sponsor, its parent, subsidiaries, affiliates, distributors, retailers, sales representatives, advertising and promotion agencies (collectively, the “Sweepstakes Entities”) and the immediate family members, and/or those living in the same household of each, are ineligible to enter the Sweepstakes or win a prize. Sweepstakes is void where prohibited by law.
HOW TO ENTER:
To enter the Sweepstakes, have your Show badge scanned at the AGTA booth at the Show during each Entry Period.
All entries must be received by the end of each Entry Period in order to be entered into the random drawing associated with each Entry Period. Sponsor’s database clock will be the official timekeeper for online entries in this Sweepstakes. In the event a dispute regarding the identity of the individual who actually submitted an entry cannot be resolved to Sponsor’s satisfaction, the affected entry will be deemed ineligible. The Sweepstakes Entities shall not be responsible for incorrect or inaccurate entry information whether caused by Internet users or by any of the equipment or programming associated with or utilized in the Sweepstakes or by any technical or human error which may occur in the processing of the entries in the Sweepstakes. The Sweepstakes Entities assume no responsibility or liability for any error, omission, interruption, deletion, theft or destruction, or unauthorized access to, or alteration of entries.
Limit one (1) entry per person per Entry Period.
WINNER SELECTION AND NOTIFICATION: At the end of each Entry Period, one (1) potential prize winner will be randomly selected from all eligible entries received during the corresponding Entry Period. WINNERS NEED NOT BE PRESENT TO WIN. Following each drawing, each potential prize winner will be notified by telephone and/or e-mail, using contact information associated with their Show registration. Sponsor shall have no liability for any winner notification that is lost, intercepted or not received by a potential winner for any reason. If, despite reasonable efforts, a potential winner does not respond by 12:00 p.m. PT on June 3, 2019, such potential winner will forfeit his or her prize. If any potential prize winner is found to be ineligible, or if he or she has not complied with these Official Rules or declines the prize for any reason prior to award, such potential prize winner will be disqualified. The odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received for each Entry Period.
