Policies & Procedures

February 24th-26th, 2022
Irving Convention Center | Irving, Texas

Pertaining to everyone participating in LIFE:

LIFE 2022 reserves the right to alter these rules, regulations, and guidelines as deemed necessary.

Liability Waiver/Assumption of Risk

The following terms and conditions of the Living In Freedom Experience Conference and Expo, also known as LIFE 2022 (“Event”), apply to all participants, including (but not limited to) Event staff, contractors, venue employees and their contractors, attendees, exhibitors, sponsors, speakers, entertainers, and other individuals operating within or near the same premises in which the Event is conducted (“Participants”).

This release includes any claims for personal injury, disease, death, property loss or any other loss, including but not limited to claims of negligence and any right to seek damages, including risks related to illness and exposure to infectious diseases, bacteria, and/or viruses of any kind, including COVID-19 (and all variants, “COVID”), as well as injury or death caused by negligence on the part of any Participant(s) (“Assumed Risks”).

Participants acknowledge Assumed Risks and shall indemnify and hold harmless other Participants against claims of illness related to the Event, including (but not limited to) anyone in any party contracting any illness while participating in and/or performing the duties necessary for the Event, risks to their own health and the health of others with whom they may come in contact during or after the Event, including travel specifically to/from the Event.

Participants agree, on behalf of themselves, their heirs and assigns, and anyone who might assert a claim on their behalf, to release, indemnify and hold harmless the Event, the Event venues, Event partners and their respective owners, directors, officers, employees, representatives, heirs and assigns from any and all liability, claims or causes of action that may be released under applicable law arising from or relating to the Assumed Risks.

Specifically, COVID, a highly infectious disease caused by the novel coronavirus, is currently classified as a pandemic by public health authorities. It is associated with severe symptoms including acute respiratory issues, severe damage to lungs and other organs and death. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), COVID is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person, and individuals over age 65 and people of any age who have certain underlying medical conditions are at higher risk for severe illness from COVID. COVID is not fully understood at this time, and understanding of the symptoms, risks and spread of the disease may change over time. Although Event will take all reasonable safety precautions to protect the health of participants, because of the large quantity of Participants expected, the Event cannot guarantee that Participants will not be exposed to COVID during attendance at the Event.

All Participants at Event acknowledge that their participation is completely voluntary and that they understand the dangers of COVID and other Assumed Risks described above.


Large Gathering Rules and Regulations, Face Coverings, Vaccinations

With regards to large gatherings, face coverings, and vaccination requirements, LIFE 2022 will follow the current ordinances as directed by the State of Texas and will consider Texas law as superseding county or municipal law when those laws are not in alignment.


Attendee Registration Cancellation and Transfer Policy

All attendee registrations are transferrable and fully refundable minus a $25 administrative fee prior to six weeks before Opening Day of LIFE 2022. To cancel or transfer a registration, please contact the Convention Registrar at Liberty@LivingInfreedomexperience.com.

Six weeks prior to Opening Day, all attendee registrations are non-refundable, and transfers can be made until four weeks prior to Opening Day by contacting Liberty@LivingInfreedomexperience.com. Transfers are not considered valid unless a transfer receipt is issued and agreed to by LIFE 2022. Transfer approval and receipts will be sent to the email address provided by the original registrant.

If the postponement of LIFE 2022 is necessary due to circumstances beyond LIFE 2022’s reasonable control, such as acts of God, war, acts of domestic terrorism, strikes or similar circumstances, civil disorder in the location where the event is held, government regulations (including pandemic or other Covid-19 restrictions), or curtailment of transportation facilities that make it illegal or impossible to provide or use the venue facilities, then LIFE 2022 will apply registration fees to the rescheduled event. Should there be a virtual or hybrid convention held, a portion of your registration fees can be applied to that event with the remainder going toward the rescheduled subsequent event registration. LIFE 2022 reserves the right to utilize a reasonable period of time to determine when/where the rescheduled event will be, and all registrants will be notified once rescheduling is confirmed.
