Available Extras: All registered exhibitors will receive an email from Best Expo with additional resources offered. This will be your opportunity to arrange for special booth items not included in the booth package, such as electricity, extra furnishings, wired Internet, etc.

Door Prizes: Exhibitors are encouraged to offer door prizes. Door prize winner names should be given to staff at the FGS booth daily by
4:30 pm Thursday-Friday, and by 1:00 pm Saturday. Winners will be posted on the bulletin board located in or near the FGS booth.

Vendor Bucks: Each FGS full conference registrant will receive $10 in Vendor Bucks. After "spending" the Vendor Bucks at an exhibitor booth (by making a purchase of equal or greater value) and having their bucks endorsed by the exhibitor, registrants may redeem them for the cash value at the FGS booth at the front of the Exhibit Hall.

Dedicated Exhibit Hall Time: The grand opening is scheduled for Thursday at noon, with a dedicated lunch in the Exhibit Hall and special time following the last session on Thursday with a Cookie Bar. Thirty-minute breaks are scheduled between lectures, plus two hours for lunch each day so attendees have ample opportunities to visit the exhibit hall.
