A highlight for attendees is the giveaway of door prizes. The door prizes also provide free advertisement for exhibitors and help bring attendees to the exhibit hall. Please consider donating any prize items or gift cards when you are setting up your exhibit. The prize-winners’ names will be drawn throughout the day and posted in the exhibit area.
As incentives for visiting the exhibits, we will hold a prize drawing for Amazon Fire tablets and other prizes if attendees visit exhibits. Conference goers will visit your exhibit as you chat with them about your products, you will mark their map. If they visit the exhibits, they will qualify for the prize drawings Friday and Saturday.
We will also build “Snack and Yack” breaks into the conference schedule for attendees to visit the exhibits. This year we will have the refreshments in the exhibit hall. Please make plans to help sponsor a refreshment break and/or to donate prizes. We would like to know as quickly as possible if you would like to help sponsor an event.
