Five reason to be an exhibitor at Conference 2020 


2020 marks a handful of new and impactful changes to enhance engagement between delegates and you, our valued trade show exhibitors. 


1. Increase your visibility 

All dining, networking and education sessions will be held in the trade show area. 


2. Generate more leads 

Attendees will be equipped with a trade show “passport” where a visit to each exhibitor booth grants delegates a chance to win prizes. 


3. Connect with delegates 

The interactive conference layout will optimize engagement between your company and attendees. 


4. Expand your reach 

The RAIC will host a complimentary afternoon for local architects and designers from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. on June 4.  


5. Share your expertise 

Four sponsors will host a Lunch ‘n Learn session where delegates can sit, eat, and listen to an informative presentation about your product or service.
