Let's Make a Deal Exhibitor Night
Start the evening off right with hors d’oeuvres and drinks while you mingle with our exhibitors. Be sure to pay close attention to what you learn and pick up at each booth. What you learn and collect will increase your odds of making a successful deal once the show begins!
Once you’ve had sufficient time to chat, we’ll jump back in time to the 1960s! Our own version of Monty Hall will host the classic TV game show Let’s Make a Deal. For those not familiar with the program, Monty selects contestants from the audience at random for the opportunity to be traders. To increase the likelihood that you’ll be picked to play, we encourage you to come in costume and/or carry signs to get Monty’s attention!
Each deal offered is unique. You might win a great prize, like some vendor swag, cash, or a gift card. But beware! Not all deals are good ones. The choice you make could turn out to be a Zonk, or bad prize. All we can promise is that, unlike the show, no livestock will be involved.
We’ll take breaks between games to hear a word from our sponsors in the form of exhibitor lightning talks from our Gold, Silver, and Bronze-level sponsors.
Guests at Casino Night will be treated to hors d’oeuvres and drinks and may begin playing games at any time. Choose any table that interests you, and the dealer will give you 2,500 chips. Choose from:
Play each game as long as you like. When you are ready to move to another table, the dealer will give you a voucher with your chip count. Give that to the dealer at the next table to claim your chips.
At the end of the night, the dealer at each table will write your final chip count on your voucher. You may trade that for raffle tickets: 1 ticket for every 5,000 chips. We will set up the prizes with bowls in front of them and give you sufficient time to place your raffle tickets as you please.
