Facebook Event

We'd prefer if exhibitors did not make their own Facebook Event, but we'd love if you joined ours!  We can make you a co-host, so our Facebook Event will appear on your Facebook Page.   You can also share the Facebook Event regularly.   You can post show specials and business information in our Facebook Event regularly.  It's the best place to connect with our attendees prior to, during and after the show.  Visit our Facebook Event for 2019 and mark yourself as attending! Also, feel free to connect with your Sales Rep so you can be added as a Facebook Event co-host.

In addition to using our Facebook Event to your advantage, consider submitting an Exhibitor Spotlight.   We'll use your answers to create a blog that will appear on our show website, and be shared on Twitter and in the Facebook Event.  Fill out the Exhibitor Spotlight form.
