Urbana 12 brings exciting new opportunities and resources for exhibitors. New changes include:
Social Media Training
We've offered two webinars for organizations who would like help being up-to-speed on how best to utilize social media at Urbana 12. View both webinars here. We hope the material will be useful both to groups who are just getting started with social media usage and for those who would like to take what they are doing to the next level.
Missio Nexus has a webinar available about the opportunities and challenges of getting members of the current student generation involved in missions entitled “Reset with This Generation: Engaging Millennials in Mission”, presented by the Urbana 12 Exhibits Manager Anne Hong and Wycliffe Senior Vice President Ruth Hubbard. Much of the material is about Millennials in general, but Ruth shares specifically about how Wycliffe tailored their booth at Urbana 09 to fit the characteristics of this generation.
If your organization is interested in viewing this webinar, you can find it on the Missio Nexus website.
We are increasing the value of what we offer Exhibitors for Urbana 12 in part by bundling various services and items with the booth purchase, such as complimentary conference registrations and advertising. While the value will increase with the bigger packages, even the basic booth package come with services beyond what was included in Urbana 09. Click here for more about booth packages.
Off-Site Exhibitor Lounge
The Exhibitor Lounge will be located at the Embassy Suites, right next to the America’s Center. The Lounge will be available to all accepted Exhibitors at Urbana 12, providing them a location to gather and rest. Sponsors will be given a display table in the Lounge for the day(s) they are sponsoring. Sponsors can use their display table to connect with exhibiting organizations about their services or ministries. Lounge Sponsorship is also open to non-exhibiting organizations.
