Sponsor Pavilion Information

The Sponsor Pavilion is set up so that while guests enjoy a great dinner buffet and mingle, they have the opportunity to visit your booth and learn more about your products and services. We will provide bags for attendees to pick up collateral and sales gift items as they stroll by and meet with you. We also provide them with a Passport for Prizes booklet to have stamped by sponsors during the Sponsor Pavilion in order to be eligible to win some great prizes from each of the sponsors at the end of the Awards.

Reminder of Logistics for the Event:

  1. Sponsor Pavilion set up time on May 4, 2023 from 4:00 PM – 5:45 PM. All sponsors should be set up and ready to go by 5:45pm. The Pavilion Dinner begins at 6:00pm and will end at 7:30pm.

  6. Thursday night breakdown of sponsor tables:  The sponsor displays in the sponsor pavilion will remain in place throughout the Awards Gala. At the conclusion of the Awards, attendees will be guided back to the Prefunction area for the Champagne and Dessert Reception. This will provide sponsors more time to network with the attendees.
