MODEX 2016® INDUSTRY NIGHT DOOR PRIZE OFFICIAL RULES & REGULATIONS

  1. HOW TO ENTER: Tickets to MODEX 2016® Industry Night must be completed in full and must be deposited as entries for the door prize drawing when presented to MHI personnel at the entrance of the Thomas Murphy Ballroom at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia. Submission of ticket entries constitutes the entrant’s full and unconditional agreement to these Official Rules and Regulations, which are final and binding in all matters related to MODEX 2016® 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.

    MHI is not responsible for incomplete or illegible ticket entries, which will be eliminated from eligibility to win. False, deceptive or duplicate entries, as determined by MHI, will also render an entrant ineligible. All entries become the property of MHI and will not be returned. All entries must be submitted in the name of an individual person, and the prize can only be awarded to the person whose name is on, or corresponds to, the winning ticket or alternate entry.

  2. HOW TO WIN: The Finalist Winner must be present, must be 21 years of age or older, must have a valid photo ID and must meet all eligibility requirements including the execution and delivery of all necessary releases and “Winning Documents.” The random drawing from qualified ticket entries will be held at to be held at 6:45 p.m. on April 6, 2016, in the Thomas Murphy Ballroom at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia, or at a later date, place, and time if required. MHI assumes no responsibility for unanticipated delays in holding such drawing.

    The drawing will take place in two rounds:  MHI will draw four (4) ticket entries (the “Finalists”) who must identify themselves within two (2) minutes of their ticket entry being drawn or another entrant will 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 automobile. MHI’s decision to hold such an alternate drawing is final.  After the five (4) Finalists are selected, each Finalist will draw, in random order determined by MHI, one of five (4) “Envelopes/Keys.”  The winning Finalist will be the one who draws the Envelope/Key that unlocks the ignition of the automobile. If the winning Finalist is ineligible for any reason whatsoever, MHI will hold another random drawing to determine an alternate winner. 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.”

    Drawings will be administered by MHI, whose decisions on all matters regarding the drawing are final and binding. In the event the potential winner declines the prize or fails to return completed Winner Documents including releases and related documents, MHI may elect in its sole discretion to select an alternate winner. Should the winning entrant later be determined to be ineligible for any reason, MHI reserves the right to conduct a random drawing at any time after the conclusion of MODEX® . Any such alternate drawing is subject to scheduling by MHI without notice to any entrants. If no eligible potential 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.

  3. PRIZE: One (1) Finalist Winner, who is randomly selected by a drawing as set forth above, will receive a 2016 Porsche Cayman S (color and style may vary) donated by MHI.
