The key to making an Exhibit Hall booth successful is to offer enticements that catch the visitor’s eye. This year we’re asking all Exhibitors to offer a Show Special and a Drawing Prize.
See samples of our Virtual Exhibit Hall and your Virtual Booth.
This is going to be easy. We’ll show you how it works.
A Show Special offers a product or service at a discount. Here are a few ideas:
We make this easy. We’ll ask you to provide a link for attendees to purchase your product. This can be the web address of your online sales site, an order form the attendee will print out and mail in (we’ll even give you a location to upload the order form), or your email to discuss the purchase.
Prizes are a way to draw attention to your business by having something fun – a chance to win! You also can collect the emails of these entrants for future marketing. Here are some possible prize drawings:
You decide how often to draw for a prize – once at the end of each conference, once a day or even once an hour. It’s all up to you. Send us back the winner’s name and what they won and we’ll announce it on the Jamboree Social Media along with your business' name. If you draw more than once, draw early in the conferences so your name will be included in our announcements before the Exhibit Hall closes. Draw a winner every day and your business is in the winners announcement posted daily.
Your entrants click the "Enter Now” button on your Jamboree Exhibit Hall page and we’ll link the entrant to an email you provide. You collect the emails and randomly draw your winner(s).
A Show Special item is available for sale at the published discount for as long as the Exhibit Hall is open. The Jamboree Exhibit Hall will open Friday, June 4 at 9 am (PDT) until Sunday, June 13 at 12 midnight (PDT). In other words, anyone can take advantage of your sale and buy that item for the 10 days the Exhibit Hall is open.
Prize Drawings are a great way to get your name and offerings in front of Jamboree attendees, SCGS social media followers, free-event attendees and Exhibit Hall visitors. These prizes are given away by you sometime during the 10 days the Exhibit Hall is open.
Hopefully, your get three wins from participating:
To meet our attendees high expectations, the Jamboree Exhibit Hall strives to create an exciting atmosphere where visitors can explore relevant, popular and in-demand items. With that in mind, the Exhibit Hall Committee reserves the right to reject non-genealogical related items or inappropriate materials offered for sale and/or as prizes.
Jamboree understands it's been a tough year on everyone. The Exhibitor charge for 2021 is a flat $100. There is an approval process and only business providing products and services that directly support the genealogical community will be accepted.
Registration to the conference is not included but may be purchased through the Jamboree website. Explore the complete schedule here GenealogyJamboree.com/Schedule0913/
