We'd love for you to sponsor a door prize - Continue Reading:
If you or your company want to sponsor a LAVA BBQ door prize, please post a reply below. You can also include a small blurb about your company and a link to your website in the post below. By donating a prize you and your company will receive a small announcement of your choosing, during the event. We will ask you to write the announcement on a post-it note and will attach it to the prize to be read before awarding it.
We love the door prizes, but we love time for socializing too. Here are some guidelines to keep our event balanced and streamlined.
Single item donations work best. If donating more than one item, then multiple identical items is strongly preferred.
If donating non-tangible items or something that is not physically with you, then please bring a card with your contact info and instructions on how to collect the prize. This will be given to the winner.
Donations are typically $25-$200 in value.
Apparel (hats, t-shirts, underwear, etc.) - never the right size
Software licenses (Toolkits, add-ons, LabVIEW)
Branded trade show booth type giveaways (mouse pads, pens, keychains, etc.)
Jokes or something meant as a gag and not a real prize
Hope to see you there! Chime in once you buy tickets to let everyone know you're coming.
