New & Exciting
The 2020 Trade Show lends itself to be more interactive than ever. In addition to exhibitor booths, the Trade Show will feature activities to keep delegates in the Trade Show longer! If you want to offer an activity in lieu of or in addition to a booth, let us know! Activity space is limited.
Instead of the typical boxed lunch, this year all Trade Show meals will be served from food trucks from directly inside the Trade Show! All exhibitors will receive 2 food truck vouchers per booth, and additional food may be purchased from the trucks directly with cash.
