Conference APP:
We’ve converted from a book format to an app for our attendees. We have an 86% download rate and our attendees use the app to build their schedule, read session descriptions, see presentations, interact with sponsor, etc. This year, we have updated our App and are allowing you to collaborate and provide additional content on your exhibitor page. You do not need a guidebook account. You will be emailed a link, giving you access to your specific exhibitor page.
  • Things that will be pre-loaded into your page – your company name, your sponsorship level (if applicable), a company description, and your company link.
  • You can control what you want people to interact with on your page - provide logo, additional information, additional links or link text, provide additional content or context to your page. We will let you decide what you’d like to do with it. You will receive an email from Guidebot@guidebook.com with the link to get started. It’s user-friendly but we’ll take any questions you may have.

Exhibitor space will be 8x10 with an 8 foot table. For information on what will be included and provided in your space, check out our FAQ pageAn example of the info provided, we will not be skirting or covering your table.

Accommodations and Conference Registrations
Be sure to have your hotel booked as the room blocks will be released on August 20th. We have blocks at three hotels. If you’d like someone to attend the conference in entirety, versus just the day of the showcase, you can register them with your discount code (VENDOR2018), otherwise we look forward to seeing your two booth representatives the day of the showcase.
