New this Year!!
Create Booth Traffic by Signing Up to be a SCANTrivia Location Stop

To generate more traffic to vendor booths and to bring added excitement to the Expo Hall, paper bingo cards will not be distributed this year and an exciting, new interactive SCANTrivia activity will be introduced. The SCANTrivia platform increases attendee engagement by using gamification elements that allow for casual introductions, while providing a fun, scavenger hunt for participants who are rewarded with prizes. Click here to check it out in action.
