Exhibitor Showcase Workshops

Exhibitor Showcase workshops allow companies 1.25, 1.5, 1.75, or 2-hour block of time to promote, showcase, demonstrate, and present their products and/or services in a workshop setting during the BOOST Conference. Large Exhibitor Showcase workshops are facilitated in a large breakout room in the Palm Springs Convention Center off of the Exhibit Hall with capacity for up to 125 participants with 100 chairs placed around the perimeter, and plenty of active space for lots of movement. Regular Exhibitor Showcase workshops are held in a standard breakout room with both active space and round tables, accommodating 40-50 attendees. You must be a registered BOOST Conference Exhibitor to present an Exhibitor Showcase workshop.

Joining Exhibitor Showcase workshops gives attendees a chance to learn about new products and services in the field and how they can be best utilized in today's youth programs.
