This is an excellent business opportunity to gain one-on-one contact with electric cooperative employees representing a variety of departments. Approximately 75 co-op employees are expected to attend, including managers, supervisors, department directors, and frontline employees.
Sponsorships secured by Nov. 30, 2022, will ensure that sponsors will be listed in all conference registration materials and will receive priority in table location. Exhibit space will be allotted on a first-come, first-served basis.
Exhibitors attending the meeting must register. The registration fee is $375. This will include admission to all conference activities, including educational sessions, meals, breaks, and social events.
In order to increase traffic in the vendor’s area, conference attendees will be given a vendor card. After visiting with you at your booth, they will ask you to initial your booth on the card. When a conference attendee has visited every vendor present, they will be placed in a drawing for a special door prize. We will also host networking events in the vendor’s area to encourage attendees to visit your booth. We believe this program structure will maximize your opportunity to personally interact with attendees.
The 2023 Members First Conference also provides sponsorship opportunities for vendors, even if you are unable to attend the meeting. Please review our sponsorship form enclosed in the Exhibitors packet.
