COVID Rules Agreement

Due to COVID precaution requirements from the City of Austin and the Palmer Events Center, the May 7,8,9 — 2021 show will be different than past shows. We are requiring dealers to read these rules and select the I HAVE READ AND AGREE at the bottom of this page, or click CANCEL to cancel your application if you so choose.

Layout Changes
The layout of tables will be different than in previous shows, which means that dealers will most likely not get their usual spot, and it will be nearly impossible to honor any requests (who to be next to, wall table, etc)

sample table layout
Potential table layout to be approved by Austin Public Health - NOT FINAL. Note the striped red area between tables, which is off limits / not for vendor use.

Temperature Checks
All dealers and shoppers will have to have their temperate checked by facility personnel. Anyone whose temperature is too high will be asked to wait for a period of time and checked again before entering. Regardless of whether you've paid for a table, if you have a high temperature you will be denied entry.

Masks required at all times
All dealer and shoppers must wear masks at all times inside the building and during load-in / load-out. Masks will not be provided by the Austin Record Convention - you must bring your own.

Some Aisles Might Be One-Way
Depending on the width of the aisles, some aisles might be one way.

Extra Space Between Dealers
There will be more space than normal between dealers. You will not be allowed to push your tables up next to another dealer's tables.

Limited Shoppers Per Table
In order to keep crowds from forming, there might be limits as to the number of customers that can shop at a table at the same time.

Travel Restrictions
We are asking all international dealers to be aware if any travel restrictions are in place that would prohibit them from attending the show.

Show Cancelation
By agreeing to these rules you acknowledge and understand that due to circumstances beyond our control, the show could be canceled or postponed. If that happens, we will refund your payment (table / pegboard / electricity).

Travel Insurance
For dealers with significant travel expenses, we encourage them to consider getting travel insurance to cover any of the unfortunate scenarios we've described above (or ones we haven't thought of).

COVID-19 Warning
COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness or even death. There is an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. Although we and the venue have put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19 we cannot guarantee that you or your family will not be exposed to or contract COVID-19 while attending the event. You must follow all posted instructions while attending the Austin Record Convention.

By attending the Austin Record Convention, you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19, accept full responsibility for any such injury to yourself or your family.

Changes to These Rules
If we need to add to, amend, or change these rules we will do so, in order to make the show safe and successful. We will make an effort to keep our dealers informed of any changes, but if there are new or additional rules you will be required to abide by them.
