Join your fellow exhibitors in the Exhibit Hall on Wednesday at 2:30pm and on Thursday at 1:45pm. No RSVP necessary. See the breakout information below to plan your time between innings!
  • Forget the peanuts and popcorn! As our MVP, your booth's registered exhibitors are invited to join the attendees in the General Session Room on Thursday. Enjoy some Kansas City BBQ and stick around for a special Kansas City keynote luncheon presentation by the Royals General Manager, Dayton Moore.

  • Be more clear about the types of people/companies who qualify as good candidates for your business
  • Learn how to set strong verbal agreements with those who qualify for follow-up after the trade show

GET IN THE GAME!
Be a part of the conference in-app game and see engagement with attendees increase. GAME PLAN is designed with one goal in mind - to get attendees interacting with the reps in your booth.

This game drive is complimentary to our exhibitors and easy to play.
Simply submit two (2) items here  that you want attendees to know about your company in the form of questions and multiple choice answers.
In order to play the game, attendees will have to visit your booth to determine the correct answers to the questions you've submitted. When they do, they'll be entered into drawings for a gift card provided by KS SHRM. It's a WIN-WIN!

Click here for more information on the GAME PLAN conference app game. Questions and answers are due by September 1, 2017 so don't delay!

Information on how to download the conference app will be sent in September.
