Passport to Prizes Program (NEW this year!)


ASSH is offering the booth traffic building promotion called “Passport to Prizes” during the 68th Annual Meeting. Participation is a fun and effective way to boost booth traffic by keeping attendees on the exhibit floor. 

Here’s how it works:
1) Each attendee receives a Passport game card with their registration packet. 

2) Attendees must visit each participating exhibitor to receive a stamp/signature on his or her Passport. 

3) Once the attendee completes the entire Passport they become eligible for the Prize Drawing held at the Friday and Saturday Scientific Sessions. The give-a-way prizes will be iPad Minis.

4) Attendees must visit all participating exhibitors and be present at the Prize Drawing to win. 

Current ASSH Corporate Partners are automatically entered to participate. The participation fee for non-partner exhibitors is $500 USD and availability is limited. Participating companies will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. To participate in this traffic-building program, please complete the online application by Friday, September 6th.
