What types of businesses and companies exhibit/attend Largest Mixer® events?
Our exhibitors and attendees represent all walks of life and every manner of business category, and are all there to network with their peers, generate leads, and forge long-lasting business partnerships. At our exhibit tables you will find proprietors of small and mid-size enterprises along with large companies and industries who offer either a service or a product and who participate in these events as a way to promote/advertise their business. To see a running list of current event exhibitors, or last year's lists, please visit the webpage of each event and click on the "Exhibitors" tab on the right hand column.
Are there educational sessions at the Largest Mixer®?
No. Every Largest Mixer® is geared towards business to business networking. Instead of keynote addresses, educational sessions, and general presentations and/or announcements, our sole purpose is to provide you the ultimate 4-hour business networking experience.
What is the recommended attire?
Business casual. We also recommend that you wear comfortable shoes as exhibit halls can be very large.
I want to participate! What opportunities are available to my business and/or my company?
There are different ways to get involved. In addition to the opportunity of becoming an exhibitor, we also offer various sponsorship at every event. You can also join us as an attendee.
Why should I become an exhibitor?
The Largest Mixer® offers comprehensive networking experiences. Packages include an exhibit space at the event, company's name listed on the event website, with a link directly to their site; contact name and information printed in our Business Referral Directory; and invitation to our "Sponsors Only" VIP Kick-Off Event. Other benefits vary depending on the networking package. For further details, click on the event that interests you from the list on the right hand column. Once at the appropriate site, you can download our participant application or explore the on-line application. If you require additional help, visit the "Contact Information" page and either call or e-mail us and one of our representatives will contact you shortly.
Is this event a good fit for my company?
We firmly believe that almost every company has its place at our events as networking is the foundation for all business growth. However, if you're still unsure as to whether your company can benefit from exhibiting at the Largest Mixer®, please call our offices and one of our representatives will be more than happy to discuss the opportunities available.
As an exhibitor, can I sell my products directly to attendees?
Direct exchange of currency for product is not allowed during the event. This encourages exhibitors and attendees to focus on learning more about each other and on building relationships that can lead to future business transactions for both parties. Nevertheless, exhibitors can take orders and even collect payment information for later processing.
What is the deadline to sign up as an exhibitor?
We stop accepting applications when all the networking packages have been purchased. We always encourage those who are interested in signing up ASAP so that they may be able to enjoy all of the benefits included in each networking package. Some of those items are date-specific. Please see each event's application for further details.
What is your cancellation policy?
Any request for a refund will incur a $100.00 cancellation fee. Partial refunds are available only for a limited period of time. The last date for partial refunds varies depending on each event and is specified in the Terms and Conditions section of each event's participant application. Please read this section carefully. Cancellation requests must be submitted in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org. Approved refunds will be processed within one month. The Largest Mixer® reserves the right to modify this policy.
Do you provide complimentary booths to non-profit organizations?
We believe that every non-profit organization or association has a service, product, or cause that it can "sell." Therefore, we do not offer complimentary booths. Our four-hour events have proven to be beneficial for non-profits, where they can raise awareness, recruit volunteers, support fund-raising efforts, etc.
Sign me up! But it is my first time as an exhibitor at a Largest Mixer® event. What do I do?
First and foremost, welcome to our Largest Mixer® family! Please fill out a participant application (visit event links on the right hand column of our website for each event's application). When you fill it out, please be sure to provide information that follows the directions on the form and is one hundred percent accurate as some of it will be printed in our business referral directory. Then, be sure to read all communication sent to you from our offices. Again, our goal is your business success. Feel free to share all of this critical information with your team members at your company.
How much does it cost to attend?
Please visit each event website for further details. Ask us about our multi-ticket discount.
Do I need to pre-register in order to get a ticket?
No. You may just show up and go to the Admissions area. Checks and credit cards are not accepted at the door. Should you wish to pay by credit card, please visit our website and purchase your ticket in advance.
How can I purchase my ticket(s) in advance?
Tickets are available in advance through each event website. Or you may also call our offices. Please visit the specific event webpage for contact information.
Will food be available at the event?
Each Largest Mixer® event showcases restaurants/caterers who provide sample-sized portions of a specialty dish to attendees at no additional cost to the attendees. Should you wish to purchase a full meal, each event venue typically has concessions stands open for this purpose.
May I have access to the list of exhibitors?
Yes. A complete list of all our event participants—from exhibitors to sponsors—is available at each event website. Also, the Business Referral Directory, given to you as you enter the event, contains this same list in printed version, with contact information included.
May I have access to the list of attendees?
As this is one of the prime benefits of exhibiting, we do not release this list to fellow attendees.
Can an attendee distribute information about a business (such as flyers or postcards) at the event?
No. The ability to distribute marketing collateral such as flyers, samples, brochures, or any other example of a product or service is a privilege purchased by all of our exhibitors and a right that belongs to them alone. We take this seriously and do everything in our power to prevent abuse. If you have attended one of our events before, and believe it is a venue at which you would like to distribute marketing collateral, we invite you to consider registering as an exhibitor so that you may take advantage of that privilege.
