Vendors will eat lunch at 1:15PM - AFTER the attendees go back into their sessions. This will provide maximum face time with the attendees at your booths and facilitate seating.
Attendees will be encouraged to visit every area of the Exhibition Hall to qualify for winning door prizes. Each booth will be given a stamp for stamping the door prize cards as proof that they visited your booth. If you’d like to provide a door prize, that would be awesome! Give it to the staff at the registration table, or display it in your booth and turn it in at the end of day Thursday to the APWA table in the atrium. Be sure your door prize is identified with your organization’s name! The prizes will be handed out after the last session on Friday, providing another opportunity to get your name out there one last time!

Vendors and Full Registration attendees will have drink tickets in their name badge holders for use at this time. Breaking down exhibitor booths on Thursday is not allowed until after 5:30PM.
