Exhibit Details

Enjoy unparalleled access to CalGIS attendees! The Exhibit area is adjacent to the General Session room where keynote addresses, general sessions and the conference lunch will take place and to the breakout sessions/workshop rooms. Coffee breaks and the networking reception will take place inside the Exhibit area. CalGIS 2019 registration is immediately outside the entrance to the Exhibits. Your representatives will have ample opportunity for multiple attendee ‘touches’ at CalGIS 2019!

Exhibitor Game Card: Each participating organization can include a question on the conference game card which every attendee receives. Instead of just stopping by your booth and asking for a stamp, the attendees are prompted to ask your booth reps a question to start a conversation. Start thinking now about what you’d like to talk to CalGIS attendees about. Completed cards will be entered into a raffle for exciting prizes, drawn on Wednesday afternoon.
