2018 Expo Game:

In 2016, the Methodists Lost their Marbles; in 2017, we collected school supplies for children; and you won’t want to miss out on all the fun we’ll have with this year’s Expo Game!

Because this year’s Expo spaces are a little farther off the beaten path, you’re going to want to take advantage of this opportunity to connect with Conference guests AND have lots of fun! Sign up to be given the opportunity to drive traffic to your booth with a special indicator in the Expo Guide PLUS some fun ways to connect with guests. Questions? Email Caitlin White at caitlin@wearecollectivechurch.com.

Want to drive more traffic to your booth during the expo? We will again have a full-color Expo Guide, and you are invited to purchase ad space. You might just want to include your logo, or even a "visit our booth for a special offer/gift!" directive. It's your space to use as you would like!
