Each attendee will receive bingo game cards upon check in. They will complete the bingo card by visiting your booths (and you check off your name)! As they complete one card, they will choose one prize bucket to put it into. Each bucket will represent one large prize.
Please email [email protected] if you’d like to donate one of these prizes (minimum value $200). Up to 5 prizes will be chosen. Winners for each prize bucket will be drawn and announced from the main stage (along with a plug for that exhibitor).
What's My Booth Number?
Great question! Booths are assigned first by level and then by date just a few weeks before summit.
Supporter, Sustainer, and Champion sponsors can expect to be contacted in March for booth preferences.
ALL booths are located in one main exhibit hall, see floor layout HERE.
