Connect with Attendees and Promote

Emails to Attendees

Raving is pleased to share our attendee list with exhibitors and sponsors. Most tradeshows don’t allow this anymore, so let’s keep this valuable perk by following a couple of guidelines:

  1. We'll email all exhibitors the list of attendees about three weeks out from the event, then weekly as the event draws near. You will receive a final list of attendees after the conference as well.
  2. We ask that you do the following (based on the CAN-SPAM Act): Do not add attendees to your electronic mailing list without their permission. And if they request that you do not email them, please don’t!
  3. As an exhibitor or a sponsor of the conference, personal emails to the attendees to invite them to dinners, for coffee, to your booth, etc., is absolutely fine. Plus, you’ll get a much better response rate if your email is personal!
  4. Please reference the following dates and name of the conference (there are a lot of Indian gaming events and it can get confusing): Raving NEXT: Indian Gaming Strategic Operations & Leadership Conference, January 30 – February 1, 2024, Choctaw Casino & Resort - Durant
  5. If you are inviting a large group to a dinner or late-night affair outside of the official conference program, drop Chris Faria a line to let her know. This helps us know what is going on so our team at registration doesn’t lead attendees astray with lack of information.

Promote the Event on Your Social Media Pages and Website
