What makes this new format better for exhibitors?

- It was designed by both current exhibitors and lodging attendees to provide you with the best mix of interaction and exposure opportunities with your potential/current customers and avoid empty aisles that can occur when there is too much time in the area to keep attention.

- The show opens immediately following the Recognition Luncheon, our largest attendance event, sending a lively crowd of attendees into the show aisles for just two hours - creating a sense of urgency to go through while the show is open.

- THEN get ready for the new enhancement of an invitation-only Chairman's Reception, where exhibitors (at no added fee) can freely mingle with lodging attendees without a table separating you, AND if you collect business cards during the Trade Show for a special giveaway ($100 minimum value) you will have an opportunity to do your drawing in front of the crowd and personally announce you winner.

- This is anew approach - picked by those most impacted - to combine traditional dedicated booth time, with a special reception hour with your customers, and with a bonus exposure for those giving a $100+ value prize before a crowd.
