Associate Partners & Exhibitors

As an associate partner/exhibitor participant, you’ll have the opportunity to share your services and solutions and how those can help providers to deliver exceptional experiences for their guests. 

Our program this year is expecting to bring 20 providers to the table, and all participating associate partners and exhibitors are given at least 5 meetings with 8 meetings maximum. Each one-on-one meeting with a provider is 8 minutes long, giving you enough time to scratch the surface and open up opportunities for future discussions. 

There is a $500 fee to participate as an associate partner/exhibitor. This fee goes to support the incentives given to our provider members as both a thank you for their time and as a way to ensure their attendance at your scheduled meetings. The fee is collected once you are selected to participate in the program.
