Mobile App

Exhibit Hall Passport

  • Choose a photo-based challenge that encourages attendees to interact with you and your brand. Be creative!
  • For example: You could ask attendees to post a picture of their favorite product, something they liked in your booth, a selfie with a booth staff person, or your New Product Showcase display.
  • Make sure your challenge isn't too wordy and, most importantly, is fun for attendees!
Submission Deadline: Jan. 31, 2018

Attendee Challenges

  • Like the passport, attendee challenges are photo-based activities, except the point values vary depending on which option you selected.
  • Follow the same directions in the above section for creating your challenge, but keep in mind the difficulty level should correspond with the points awarded. For example, a 5-point challenge should require more effort than a 1-point challenge.
