2018 ICAS EXHIBITOR VIDEOS DUE BY NEXT FRIDAY, OCTOBER 19
ICAS is reintroducing one of its most popular programs for ICAS Convention exhibitors with a number of notable changes to make it more useful to you and your prospective customers.
This year, exhibitors will be able to submit a short exhibitor video to be shared and promoted before, during and after the 2018 ICAS Convention…more exposure in more places than at any previous ICAS Convention. ICAS will send out all exhibitor videos via email from ICAS to all registered convention delegates prior to the ICAS Convention in December. ICAS will also display all exhibitor videos on flat screen TVs at the 2018 ICAS Convention. And, ICAS will post every video submitted on the ICAS Facebook page following the convention.
In order to include an exhibitor video, you will need to submit both a ONE 60-second video and a completed Exhibitor Video Registration Form. This opportunity is available only to 2018 ICAS Convention exhibitors and the cost of the program is $50.
To participate, send this completed form along with your 60-second video to email@example.com as soon as possible and not later than 5:00 p.m. EDT on Friday, October 19, 2018. Videos will be listed in the order in which they are received.
