Event & Expo

With the COVID-19 pandemic comes an increased risk of attending events and expos of any size. As non-essential facilities gradually reopen nationwide, people can now attend events and expos as long as they follow certain guidelines. However, that does not mean that as an event company, you ought to be held responsible should an attendee contract COVID-19. Here is where WaiverFile comes in. Our digital waiver software is designed to fit the needs of the event and expo industry, allowing you to collect and track waivers from a computer, tablet or mobile device.

What are Online Waivers?

The signing of a waiver form is legally binding, with both parties agreeing to abide by the terms of the form. The releasor, or attendee, signs to acknowledge the risks involved in attending the event and promises not to take legal action against the releasee should anything untoward occur. The releasee, which is the company hosting the event, is protected by this agreement in that if accidents do occur, the attendee has shown they acknowledged the risks. 

Why Should the Event and Expo Industries Use Electronic Waiver Form Systems?

Before the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, it was a common practice amongst industries that offer activities presumed to be of “high risk” –  such as the motor sports and paintball industries –  to enforce the signing of waiver forms. However, in the post-COVID world, even seemingly “low-risk” activities such as attending a show can carry with it certain risks of transmission. In order to protect themselves, it is best for event and expo companies to “over-communicate” when it comes to waiver forms. 

This includes emphasizing a social contract between people, such as staying a reasonable distance apart from other households and wearing masks. More information on what the company is doing to facilitate the enforcement of these guidelines can also be included. This provides an additional layer of protection in the event that attendees do decide to take legal action.
