ASPR Bingo Raffle Is on Mobile!
80% of attendees participated last year by collecting a code from exhibitors to gain points throughout the exhibit hall. With added Wi-Fi and simpler codes, we expect even better participation. Attendees have until 12:45 pm Tuesday, April 24 to reach a minimum amount of points. Names of those who gain enough points will be put in the drawing. We hope this program will provide you with greater opportunity to talk with as many attendees as possible.
If you choose to participate (completely optional) in the Mobile Bingo Raffle program, please indicate on your exhibitor registration. Prizes may not exceed $100 in value. You must be available to personally present your prize at the ASPR business meeting on Tuesday afternoon (at approx. 2:15 p.m.)
Exhibitor Door Prize Drawing
Exhibitors have the option to give away a door prize at their booth. Door prize drawing items will not be listed in onsite materials. There will be a board in the exhibit hall during the last break on Tuesday for you to post your door prize winners’ names. Exhibitors are responsible for contacting the winners directly. ASPR is not responsible for any prizes that are won and not collected.
Back by popular demand! This event will take place on the morning of Monday, April 23, 2018. Exhibitors are encouraged to sign up by Monday, April 9 in order to secure a race shirt. It is a great sponsorship opportunity!

ASPR will assess an early departure fee of $1,000 to any company that begins to dismantle its booth or leaves its booth prematurely unattended before the official tear-down time denoted in the onsite exhibitor packet. Payment of this fee will be required before the company is allowed to register for any following annual conference and the company will be placed at the bottom of the list for booth assignments at the next annual conference.
