How to participate and have a successful entry
The Passport will be attached to the Congress Essentials guide and also available for pick up at the Registration Desk and the Federation booth in Congress Expo. Individuals may visit any participating exhibitor’s booth in Congress Expo and receive a stamp on the passport from the exhibitor’s booth staff in the allocated location for that exhibitor on the Passport. You must receive at least 20 stamps (one per exhibitor) to have a successful entry. You can drop off your completed Passport at the Federation booth located in Expo. The draw will be made by Thursday, June 28, 2018 and the winners will be contacted directly via the contact information (name, organization, email address or telephone) supplied on the Passport. Individuals are restricted to one entry per person. Entries without 20 valid stamps on the form will be considered invalid and not entered into the final prize draw. In order to ensure entries are valid there will be four colours of stamps handed out to exhibitors. If you have a stamp colour for an exhibitor that is incorrect that stamp will not count towards the minimum 20 stamps required for a completed Passport.
