Summit Exhibits

Industry Partner Showcase and Reception


Please join us on Monday, October 29th from 4:00 – 6:00 pm in support of WSAE and 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.

Newly designed for 2018, this opportunity is more than just WSAE’s premier event to feature our Industry Partner’s 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 Main Lobby at the Overture Center, with downtown Madison and the Capitol as our backdrop.  A Poker 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 Poker Game activity will be entered in to a drawing for the Summit Grand Prize.

Showcase set-up: Any time between the hours of 8:30 am and 3:30 pm on Monday, October 29th. Space must be set up by 3:30 pm.
Industry Partner Showcase & Reception: 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm
