Vendors may purchase one ($150) or two ($250) tables to use for their display. Lunch is included with the fee (be sure to enter the number of exhibitors attending for the meal count). Your display should be free standing. You will need to bring any extension cords or power strips required for your product display.
Participants love door prizes! If you can provide a door prize for the closing session, please indicate it on the form. Since Areas 10 and 11 do not disclose participant information, having a door prize at your booth or at the closing session is a great way to obtain this information from participants. You will receive tickets to hand to participants and door prizes will be drawn from those tickets.
Co-sponsors are invited to contribute $125, $250 or $500 to help underwrite breakfast or lunch. Please indicate on the form below if will be willing to help defer these costs. Co-sponsors will be listed in the program and receive prime locations.
