Exhibiting

(Included with sponsorship)

The conference trade show is a three hour buffet lunch style event with table tops and exhibit spaces located around the perimeter of the ball room.

For $495, all exhibitors receive the following:

  • Trade show space including, carpet, 18″ x 72″ skirted table and two chairs (no pipe and drape).

  • Up to two additional badges for company representatives to work the booth during the trade show.

Remember your DOOR PRIZE!

Each exhibitor will be issued colored raffle tickets. As attendees visit your booth, reward them with a raffle ticket or two. You be the judge of how you distribute your tickets. One half of the raffle ticket will go into a bucket (provided by AIBD). At the close of the trade show, an AIBD executive will visit each booth, wired for sound, and will randomly choose a ticket from your bucket. The holder of the other half of that ticket will win your prize. We’ll photo you and them together celebrating and post it on the conference app, as well as the AIBD Facebook page. The best part, this process guarantees that you only award someone you know you’ve talked to. We request that DOOR PRIZES have a minimum $50 value.
