This is your chance to build relationships with established clients, as well as meet with potential new clients and referral sources as you share your expertise and educational materials with them. Set-up begins promptly at 4:30pm, not a minute before! Check-in at the registration table to find out where your table is located in the room. Make sure to bring a tablecloth. Space is limited. No walk-ins on the day of the event. The vendor fee includes catering. However, you are welcome to have treats at your booth. No free-standing or table-top displays. They only get in the way of you speaking to the social workers. Bring collaterals and educational materials to hand out. How it works: Social workers must visit every vendor in order to receive their CEUs. When they come to your table, introduce yourself and your company to them. Take your time, there is no rush. After you have shared your information, write your initials next to your company name on their sign-off sheet. Door Prizes: These are non-promotional gifts worth $20 or more for the attendees to receive after they have visited every vendor booth. Examples would be a gift basket of wine and/or other goodies, a gift card worth $20 or more to a restaurant or store, etc. NOTE: You may put your business card or sticker on the door prize you bring, but a basket full of your company's promotional materials is not an acceptable door prize.
