Yes, any attendee of the conference is eligible to be a part of our annual Expo for no additional charge.
Not only is it an opportunity for developers to share their creative ventures with others, but also a chance to receive constructive feedback and support from those who have faced similar challenges. The organization strongly advocates that developers aspire to excellence, infuse quality in all their works, and be true to the artistry God has placed in their hearts. We hope that you apply that same standard to your Expo presentation as well. Feel free to create an elaborate booth, distribute handouts/swag, display stunning visuals, or bring/apply the latest technologies to what you present. However, don’t let this call for excellence dissuade you from presenting what you have, as the best creative collaborations come out of works in progress rather than those presented as finished. Please know that our attendees are more interested in building each other up than subjecting others to withering criticism.
Expo presentations generally take one of three types: a booth exhibit, a table presentation, or a scheduled technology demonstration. We welcome all three types and can accommodate most reasonable requests you might have, provided you give us sufficient notice.
For booth/table exhibits, we provide internet, electrical access, and space for your display. We can also provide, if requested, at least one half-table (more available if space permits) and chairs. Technology demonstrations are generally scheduled at the conference with sign-ups occurring on the first day. If your tech demo requires more than mentioned here, be sure to contact us in advance with details.
It is not uncommon for Expo vendors to offer products or services for sale. Each vendor is responsible for the logistics associated with merchandising (e.g. making change, providing receipts, tracking/confirming orders, and applicable sales tax). The vendor assumes all liability and agrees, by participating in the Expo, to hold the CGDC organization harmless in matters related to their sales.
