Summit Exhibits

Industry Partner Showcase and Reception

Reserve Your Spot at the 2019 Industry Partner Showcase and Reception! 

Please join us on Monday, October 28 from 4:00 – 6:00 pm at the Annual Summit through your participation in the Industry Partner Showcase and Reception. This portion of the Summit celebrates the genuine partnership of our Association Executives, Meeting Professionals and Industry Supplier Partners. 

This opportunity is more than just WSAE’s premier event to feature our Industry Partners’ products and services. An early evening reception-style atmosphere is planned with emphasis placed on networking, designed to also be a catalyst for fostering longstanding industry relationships within our association community. Whether your organization is a destination, venue, product or service doing business with associations, this is an event you will not want to miss! 

This event will take place in the Legacy East Ballroom. A Bingo Game activity is planned encouraging attendees to circulate throughout the Showcase floor, while also enjoying appetizers and beverages during the evening. Those who complete the Bingo Game activity will be entered into a drawing for the Summit Grand Prize.
