We are all aware of the global COVID-19 pandemic and the heightened risk associated with attending live, in-person events in enclosed spaces, as well as at outdoor public gatherings.  In order to keep you as safe as reasonably possible during the indoor and outdoor aspects of this event, we will follow all published federal, state and local regulations and guidelines which are in effect at the time this event takes place but, despite taking all recommended precautions, it will not be possible for us to eliminate your risk of being exposed to or contracting the virus that causes COVID-19. 

When attending our event, you will be required to comply with all applicable posted safety rules and regulations in effect at the time of the event, which may include wearing a mask at all times while on site, socially distancing, and washing your hands and using hand sanitizer as frequently as is reasonably possible.  Anyone determined by our staff to be violating applicable safety rules and regulations, and who fails to comply, will be required to leave the event, with no recourse for lost revenue or reimbursement for fees or expenses of any nature paid or incurred to attend, exhibit during, or sponsor the event. 

By choosing to attend this live, in-person event, you are knowingly and voluntarily agreeing to assume the associated risks, and you are hereby agreeing to release Empire Screen Printing, PRINTING United Alliance and its affiliated companies, including, but not limited to, NAPCO Media, LLC, from all liability on behalf of yourself, your employees, your contractors/agents, and your guests/invitees, related to COVID-19 or any similar or related contagious disease.


In the event PRINTING United Alliance or Empire Screen Printing cancels this 2021 live event due to Federal, state or local government restrictions which, in our opinion, make it difficult, impractical or illegal to hold the event, or because, in our opinion, it would be inadvisable to hold the event, due to the health risks associated with the global COVID-19 pandemic caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus, or caused by any other virus with a similar global impact, and we hold funds for the cancelled event which you have pre-paid us (collectively, the “Payments”) in connection with registering for, exhibiting at or sponsoring the event, we offer the following two options.  At your discretion, you may choose to:

1. Roll all of your Payments into a future Partners in Printing event, or

2. Receive a full refund of your Payments.

Refunds must be requested in writing within 30 days of the date that we publicly announce the cancellation of the event.  Email requests are considered written requests.  All refund requests will be issued within 90 days of the last scheduled day of the cancelled event.  In the absence of any written instructions regarding your preferences within 90 days of the last scheduled day of the cancelled event, all Payments will be applied to a future event.  If you do not subsequently register for the follow-up event and we are unable to reach you at the email address provided during registration, the Payments will be forfeited.
