March 11th, 2015 - WATERCON Exhibitors Update

Registration Name Tags
Exhibitors - pick up your badge on site anytime after 2:00 pm on Sunday at the Crowne Plaza. There will be a separate line for picking up exhibitor tags.

If you have co-workers that still need to register, please forward them this email.

Please note that nametags need to be visible at all times. In order to get into the exhibit hall prior to opening (for set up) you will need to have on your tag and the red "Exhibitor" ribbon for security purposes.

Exhibitors Free Webinar
March 12th - 9:00 am
Free webinar to maximize your return on investment in exhibiting. Use this to train your new or seasoned booth staff.

Learn from Richard Erschik, a leading trade show consultant and trainer. You may have as many of your booth staff attend as you like. Register in advance.
Exhibit Hall Activities
During WATERCON the attendees will have the opportunity to participate in two contests. Logo hunt and water bingo.

Logo Hunt - Logos from selected exhibitors were selected and "altered" from their original format. These altered logos will be in the onsite book. Selected exhibitors will be given a "sticker" with their "complete - unaltered logo" upon checking in at the registration desk. Attendees will need to dialogue with the exhibitor in order to get the "complete" logo sticker to complete in the logo hunt. Completed entries will be entered into a drawing to win an IPAD.

Water Bingo - Water bingo is a bingo card included in the on site book that has numbers as a normal bingo card. To win, participants (including exhibitors) need to match the last digit of the year someone joined based on their name tag data onto the card and after you have enough you will win a bingo. All bingo's will be entered to win an HD Fire.
Pre-registered List
Attached to this email is the most current pre-registered attendee list. Please do not share it with anyone outside of your company.
