“What Am I?”

Exhibitor Visitation Game*

Customer attendees become eligible for a conference prize drawing worth hundreds of dollars by visiting each Exhibitor booth to inquire about a “clue.” Exhibitors will be provided daily clue information to repeat to inquiring attendees.

“Exhibitor Tours” Opportunity**

During specific exhibition times, customer attendees may take an Exhibitor Tour, guided by a McLeod employee, visiting three vendors within a specific category in under 20 minutes. No pressure to buy, simply an opportunity to gather information. Similar to speed-dating but as a group – it’s “speed meeting!” – presented as a fun, no pressure atmosphere with the potential for business card exchange or a return visit for a deeper dive. Exhibitors register for a chance to participate by selecting categories on the booth registration form.

Exhibitor Booth Prize Drawing***

Hold your own prize drawing to attract leads and obtain contact information from prospects and customers. Please check the box for participation when reserving your booth. Prizes should be worth $100 or more. Some examples include gift cards, laptops, tablets, Google Home Mini, Amazon Echo Dot, GoPro camera, Apple watch, your company’s services, etc. Participating companies will be announced, along with their drawing winners, during the Afternoon Break on Tuesday.
