By participating in this drawing, entrants agree to abide by these Rules & Regulations as established by MHI, which reserves the right to qualify all entries and to reject any entry that does not meet the following requirements. Submission of ticket entries constitutes the entrant’s full and unconditional agreement to these Official Rules & Regulations, which are binding in all matters related to ProMat 2017 INDUSTRY NIGHT DOOR PRIZE drawing. Any eligible person attending who has misplaced his or her ticket will be offered a card to fill out to be used as an entry for the drawing. There can be no more than one entry per person attending Industry Night.
Late, lost, illegible, incomplete, tampered with, duplicate, stolen, garbled, irregular, counterfeit, altered or incomplete ticket entries, as determined by MHI, will be eliminated from eligibility to win. No mechanically reproduced or software-generated ticket entries are permitted. All entries become the property of MHI and will not be returned and must be submitted in the name of an individual person. The prize can only be awarded to the person whose name is on, or corresponds to, the winning ticket or alternate entry.
- HOW TO WIN: The Finalist Winner must be present, must be 21 years of age or older, must present a valid photo ID and must meet all eligibility requirements including the execution and delivery of all “Winning Documents.” The random drawing from qualified ticket entries will be begin at 7:00 p.m. on April 5, 2017, in Room S100 at McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois, or at a later date, place, and time if required due to unforeseen circumstances. (See Disclaimer below.) MHI assumes no responsibility for unanticipated delays in holding such drawing.
The drawing will take place in two rounds: First, MHI will draw at random four (4) ticket entries (the “Finalists”); these four (4) Finalists must identify themselves within two (2) minutes of their ticket entry being drawn or another entrant will then be selected as a Finalist by random drawing from the remaining ticket entries. Completion of such an alternate drawing will foreclose any and all claims of the original non-present Finalist entrant to the prize. MHI’s decision to hold such an alternate drawing is final. Second, after the four (4) Finalists are randomly selected, each Finalist will draw one of four (4) “Envelopes” in random order determined by MHI. The winning Finalist will be the one whose Envelope contains the Golden Ticket for a Trip of a Lifetime. If the winning Finalist is ineligible for any reason whatsoever, MHI may elect in its sole discretion to hold another random drawing to determine an alternate winner. Any such alternate drawing is subject to scheduling by MHI without notice to any entrants. If no eligible potential Finalist Winner can be identified after reasonable attempts or no alternate drawing is deemed by MHI to be feasible or reasonable, MHI may in its sole discretion decide not to award any prize. The winning Finalist is deemed to be a potential winner rather than the actual winner until his or her eligibility under these Official Rules & Regulations is verified including executing all necessary “Winner Documents.”
- THE PRIZE: One (1) Finalist Winner, who is randomly selected by a drawing as set forth above, will receive a one luxury travel package to a location of his or her choice. The Approximate Retail Value for the prize is $30,000, which includes travel coordination fees.

MHI reserves the right to substitute a prize of like value or to vary any aspect of it in the event that the described package is undeliverable or unavailable for any reason whatsoever.
