How does the event work?
ShowStoppers combines a product showcase, hands-on demos, and a relaxed reception into one efficient event. It’s an informal ambiance – that includes a buffet and open bars.
Journalists arrive and ShowStoppers checks them in, to ensure they were invited. During the course of the evening, they meet with exhibitors, as they make their way around the room. Exhibitors arrive 2 to 3 hours prior to the event to set up, and to eat something before the event begins.
