  • Attendee Interaction

    • There is nothing you need to do ahead of time to have your organization involved in gamification. However, if you would like to offer a contest or giveaway to attendees, please include that information in your company description via your Exhibitor Portal.
    • Each table will be provided with a tent card with their company name and a QR code that attendees can scan for points towards conference prizes. You are welcome to have it out on the table or you can provide it when asked to attendees that come by.
    • There will also be photo contests for attendees to earn points, such as taking a picture with an exhibit table, so we ask for your support in making this an engaging and fun event for attendees.

  • Best Green Practices for Exhibitors

    Preparation:

    • Limit brochures and paper handouts in favor of sending information via email or display electronically at your table (most attendees will review materials at your table and leave them for the next person)
    • Use non-dated event neutral designs so items may be used for future events 
    • Print signage and handouts through FSC-certified printers and/or paper made of post-consumer content
    • Use non-chlorine inks such as vegetable or soy
    • Print and purchase what you can in the host city to reduce shipping. When shipping, only send what you need and avoid packaging peanuts (polystyrene) or other difficult to recycle toxic materials
    • If you wish to hand out swag to attendees, please choose utilitarian items that are sustainably made and recyclable (avoid “brandfill”)
    • Use sustainable and/or recycled materials in your exhibit table

    During the Expo:

    • During set-up, save packaging materials from shipments to reuse at the end of the conference
    • Remember to power off and unplug any electronic items at your table when not in use to save energy

    During Breakdown:

    • During break down, use waste stations to properly recycle any items that cannot be reused
    • Pack up your reusable materials and take them with you to use at future events
    • We will have a donation station to collect useful items you do not wish to ship back such as water bottles, canvas bags, pens or similar handouts.
      • NOTE: All paper handouts should be recycled
