As a method to engage the attendees and the vendors we tried a scavenger hunt last year that was composed of questions supplied by the vendors. The attendees visited the participating vendors and asked the question or discovered the answer at the booth. If you would like to participate in the Scavenger Hunt – please supply a question via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
