2020 CCSA CONVENTION

New This Year:

All of it!  😊

 

General Overview:

Schedule:

Schedule will include the following:

  • One day for attendees to β€˜visit’ the virtual site before we begin to become familiar with where things are located and how to navigate the platform.  This includes a Welcome Reception hosted by the CCSA Board of Directors and CCSA Staff on hand to welcome them and answer any questions live.
  • Convention will consist of 2 days of classes, Exhibit Hall time, Social Hour, and Breakout sessions.
  • Social Hours can be sponsored and hosted by an Exhibitor and can include breakout sessions if so desired.

Classes:

We will have a mixture of Live Classes and On Demand Classes

 

  • We will run up to 4 classes during each session with a total of 8 sessions over two days.  Attendees will be able to select which class they would like to attend.  Instructors will be live during the run of their class.
  • ALL classes will be recorded, and attendees will be able to view those videos for up to one year.
  • Any Supplier who is sponsoring a class by providing the instructor or the materials, will have:
  • Opportunity for 30-second video/commercial to play at start of class and at end of class.
  • Logo on clickable banner up the entire length of class.  You can link this to your Exhibitor Page or to your website.  

Exhibit Hall:

We will have a virtual exhibit hall including:

 

  • 12 hours of scheduled exhibit time (morning and afternoon sessions)
  • Interactive web page for your booth where you can show videos, showcase new products, promote show specials, chat live with attendees coming into your booth, list contact information for your employees, and a variety of other options. 
  • This year we will also include analytics for each exhibitor.  See who shopped your booth, how much time they spent there, who they interacted with, or if you missed them.
  • Options for gamification where you can reward members for stopping by your booth with a special coupon, giveaway, or prize drawing.
  • After the convention is over, the Exhibit Hall will remain accessible to attendees until September 28 and instead of live interaction, they will have the ability to email or message your staff.

 

What about the Swag Bags?

This year the CCSA will be shipping a swag box to all attendees prior to convention.  Items can be sent to be included in these boxes like notepads, pens, fliers, or coupons. You can ship your items directly to attendees or you can ship to be included with the CCSA shipment.  Attendees must register by August 13th to receive a swag box.  There will be weight and size limitations as to what you can include with the CCSA shipping.
