The 2021 Convention

Even at a virtual NeMLA, the exhibits hall will remain the central part of our convention. All exhibitors will be featured on our new platform’s Exhibitor Hub that will:

  • Boost your visibility with a custom profile including a video and link to your website and in-app giveaways  (set up promotional offers in the form of custom mobile coupons, raffles, and giveaways)
  • Promote your booths with ready-made social media images that are stylishly branded with each exhibitor’s information
  • Connect you with presenters in your field by having your logo appear in-app on sessions that overlap your areas of publication. NeMLA staff will work with you to identify relevant sessions.
  • Increase booth traffic with fun event or passport contests (attendees receive a digital stamp from each participating booth they visit and those who collect every stamp are entered into a prize draw)
  • Manage leads more easily by adding booth staff to the app to help capture even more leads
  • Get a higher ROI without spending more money
