Do you have a product or service that clergy and lay people in the Wisconsin Conference UCC might be interested in? Here’s an opportunity for your product or service to be seen by over 400 people at the 2018 Wisconsin Conference Annual Meeting, Why are we afraid? The winds and waves of race and privilege.
Become an Annual Meeting Exhibitor and get in front of like-minded people in the Wisconsin Conference.
Past exhibits have included such things as custom made clergy stoles, books, liturgical artwork, educational materials, jewelry, faith-based retirement communities, mission ministries and local church highlights.
We will again hold the evening social reception in the exhibit hall this year on Friday evening (when the most attendees are present), to provide a great exposure opportunity for exhibitors. With food, beverages and entertainment, we expect 250+ attendees to mingle among the exhibits on Friday evening. The remainder of the meeting schedule also provides ample time for attendees to peruse the exhibits during breaks, before and after meeting sessions and during the long meal breaks. Past surveys have indicated that nearly 100% of attendees visit the exhibit space, and most do so 2-3 times throughout the weekend.
Exhibit Space – The newly renovated exhibit hall is in the lower level of Pillsbury Hall on the campus of the Green Lake Conference Center in Green Lake, Wisconsin. Check out facility and exhibit space on the GLCC web site at www.glcc.org. An 8-foot table is provided for exhibitors. (We do not provide table skirting.) If you have special requests or requirements contact Rev. Phil Schneider at 715-842-3733 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Set-up – The exhibit hall will be open for set-up on Thursday, June 7th from 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm, although the room will be open into the evening, and will be locked at 9:00 pm. The space will re-open at 8:00 am Friday. We require all exhibits to be set up and ready for display by 11:00 am on Friday. We ask that all exhibits stay in place until 5:00 pm Saturday.
Loading/Unloading – Please use the parking area adjacent to Pillsbury Hall only while unloading, then may then move your vehicle to the lot behind Kern Lodge or to the north of the Kraft Center. There is an elevator in Pillsbury Hall that can take you down to the Lakeview level where the exhibit space is, or you may enter through the doors on the lake side of the building (slightly downhill). It is advisable to bring your own handcart if you have heavy items.
Shipping – Should you need to ship items ahead, plan to have your packages arrive at the Green Lake Conference Center no earlier than 2-3 days prior to the event. Be sure to include your name, exhibitor name and mark your packages “Wisconsin UCC Annual Meeting, Lakeview Hall”. Your items will be delivered to Lakeview and will be waiting for you when you arrive.
