The Expo Passport is back for Congress 2017! Once again, attendees will have the opportunity to win great prizes while they visit our exciting Congress Expo exhibitors. Expo is sold out this year and we are looking forward to featuring over 50 exhibitors for our attendees to meet. Check out a full list of exhibitors here.
The Expo Passport will be attached to the outside of the Congress Essentials Guide that you will receive at registration. Keep this with you whenever you are in the Expo tradeshow in the Congress Hub. Whether it be to grab a quick snack or refuel on coffee at the RAMS Café, attend a Career Corner session, stop by a book signing, or join one of the many events being held in the two event spaces, make sure you also visit as many of our dynamic exhibitors you can. They all have something interesting to offer.
While you’re there checking out their organization or purchasing a new book hot off one of the university presses, be sure to have your passport stamped by their booth staff. You will need 20 stamps from 20 different exhibitors to have a completed entry. Once it’s completed, drop off your passport to the friendly staff at the Federation booth (booth #11)! All valid entries will be entered to win one of two Congress 2018 packages (including registration and two nights’ accommodations in Regina) or our grand prize of an iPad pro!
You have the full duration of Congress to complete your Expo Passport, so whenever you have some downtime between sessions or during lunch, come take a stroll through Expo and connect with leading community partners, discover remarkable literary works, and network with the best and brightest scholarly minds from across the country and beyond.
Just think how much work you could get done on the go on your new iPad pro with its 12.9-inch display and incredibly fast A9X processor! Alternatively, you could watch untold numbers of episodes of your favourite series on Netflix on the couch while procrastinating on that next deadline. It’s up to you!
All of us at the Federation and all of the exhibitors at Congress Expo can’t wait to connect with you and stamp your passport. See you at Congress!
