Summer Family Fun & Vendor Showcase
Are you ready for a break from the daily grind and some dedicated time to work ON the business rather than IN the business? We have created a summer program that will help you do just that. We have got something for everyone and want to see you all there. We want you, your families and your colleagues to join us for our award-winning, Minnesota Hall-of-Fame Business speaker who’s keynoted conferences on 5 continents! We are extremely grateful that Ross Bernstein is local and available to speak at our lunch session—you won’t want to miss it!

2017 Vendor Showcase = New Time / New Theme / New Feel! How long would it take you to visit 30 decision makers in Minnesota that you already work with or would like to work with? Book your booth to ensure relationship maintenance and building this summer.
New Time: Happy Hour! 3:00-5:00pm
We asked and we listened! A survey was sent out to our database and we received an overwhelming majority of responses to move the show to the afternoon. Our guests all enjoy spending the weekend together anyway! The afternoon change will keep it light and fun!
New Theme: Casino! Create your booth experience around the casino theme. Vendors will be given playing cards to give to those who visit their booth to increase their chances at a prize. Exhibitors are encouraged to create their own games as well!
New Feel: Alive! The exhibit hall will be booming with ideas, people, conversations and fun! You won’t want to miss the excitement surrounding this new event. PLUS, all product show attendees are invited to join the group for lunch and our keynote speaker – we will save a spot for you at each of the tables so you can connect with your customers.
