Promote your society to the nation's genealogists!
FGS invites its members to reserve tables in the 2019 Conference Society Showcase.
Society Showcase tables will be available for member societies for the low price of $50. Handouts may be offered, but no sales are permitted. Tables do not have to be staffed throughout the conference. Please note, no extras are provided beyond a draped table and chairs.
This year Society Showcase will be featured in its own special area near the Exhibit Hall and adjacent to the Relaxation Station lounge where “In a Flash” sessions will be held, so there will be plenty of traffic to visit your Society table.
All Society Showcase participants will be featured in conference promotional material, including the On-site Conference Guide and the FGS website. Unlike Exhibit Hall booths, Society Showcase tables do not have to be staffed full time.
Table assignments will be made on a first-come, first-served basis.
If you have any questions about Society Showcase, contact FGS Vice President of Membership Cari Taplin.
Door Prizes: Societies are encouraged to offer door prizes. Door prize winners' names should be given to the Exhibit Hall Chair daily by 4:30 p.m. Wednesday and Friday, and by 1:00 p.m. Saturday. Winners will be posted on the bulletin board located in the front of the hall.
Win: Decorate your table with an attractive theme to be eligible to win a one-year membership in FGS for your organization.
Society Sponsorship Opportunity: A Local Sponsoring Society for the 2019 FGS conference receives a free one-year membership in FGS, a discount on its Society Showcase table, a conference registration discount for members, and other benefits in exchange for in-kind contributions and volunteer hours at the conference.
