Exhibitor Showcases


The MFMA Sport Floor Contractor Advisory Council is pleased to continue the hugely successful Exhibitor Showcases at the MFMA 2016 Conference. We are pleased to provide your company time with attendees and allow for fantastic face-to-face sales opportunities.

Our 2016 MFMA Showcase participants will have an opportunity to present to a captive audience to learn about new or existing products, product maintenance, industry regulations, and manufacturer certification programs or provide hands on demonstrations (prior arrangements must be arranged for all demonstrations). Each 45-minute session will be assigned to participating exhibitors with a minimum / maximum of two sessions for $150. Because these sessions run back-to-back, attendees have the opportunity to attend as many sessions as possible.

There is a different format this year, as the showcases run concurrently with the exhibit hall. Each exhibitor conducting Showcase sessions are encouraged to give prizes at the end of each of their sessions. MFMA suggests prizes have a retail value of $100 or more. Showcase session attendees will be asked to turn in a business card at the end of each session they attend. Then each presenter will pull at card at the end of each session and award a prize. You may then keep all the business cards and repeat the process at your second session. There will not be a group prize drawing in the exhibit hall this year.

If you have questions or wish to participate, please add the exhibitor showcase option to your exhibit contract or contact Heather Currier at +1-847-686-2381.
