Exhibitors

Exhibitors are welcome at the National Student Government Summit!

It is the largest gathering in the nation of Student Government officers, members, and advisors representing colleges and universities of all types and sizes. About two dozen exhibitors participate. See the 2017 Summit Exhibitors List.

The Sheraton Pentagon City Hotel’s layout is perfect for you to interact constantly with the hundreds of students and advisors who attend the conference.

See the hotel floor plan

There are a maximum of 25 exhibitor tables set up in the “ballroom foyer” area which is central to all workshops at the conference.

Throughout the entire conference, your exhibitor table will be visible and accessible. The set-up of the space allows for students and administrators to constantly interact with you throughout the conference. They must walk by your table/booth to get to workshops and speakers. The ballroom foyer is like the hub of a wheel. Everyone walks through that area to get to anywhere they’re going. Exhibitors are not in a separate exhibit hall away from the conference action.

  9. “Stamp to Win” is ASGA’s popular raffle that is held on Sunday at the end of the conference. Students must come to your exhibit table and have you “stamp” their cards to be eligible for the raffle.

Stamp to Win

All conference attendees get cards that they get “stamped” by each exhibitor to be entered into a drawing to win prizes (tablet, video camera, etc.)

Here’s an example of how an exhibitor, the National Wildlife Federation, utilized ASGA’s “Stamp to Win” program.

“The stamp to win program worked very well, miles ahead of other similar programs at other conferences: it achieved the desired outcome of speaking with students/advisors and sending them to our booth.”
