We are including a tradeshow component to GO WEST™ 2019 in our EXPERIENTIAL HALL™. This is an opportunity for DMOs, hotels and venues, audio visual companies, design and décor companies, and other event industry suppliers to showcase their brand and services to over 400 event professionals.
We will have 80 exhibit spaces available. Exhibitors are expected to incorporate an experiential element into their booth design. This can be as simple as serving Gelato samples to more complex offerings such as gamification. We are more than happy to work with you to maximize your experience.
