A: We suggest using a unique coupon code for the Festival to track your sales.
Q: How many attendees will we have?
A: Our in-person Nourished Festivals had attendance from 2,500-5,000 attendees. Although we don’t know the number of expected attendees for our Online Festival, we will be advertising the event to consumers via the Find Me Gluten Free app, email announcements, social media, & community partners.
Q: How many exhibitors will be at the Online Festival?
A: We expect 100-200 exhibitors.
Q: Do I need to be available 24/7 during the three-day Festival?
A: No, you can choose if and when you would like to schedule calls or live presentations with consumers. It would be best if someone from your company is available from 10am-6pm MST, for all three show days.
Q: My sponsorship level includes a shared email campaign. Will you have competing companies in the same email?
A: We will do our best not to have competing companies in the same email, but this will depend on the number of shared emails we will be sending.
Q: How many impressions will I get?
A: The number of impressions your booth will receive depends on the number of exhibitors and attendees, as well as the content in your booth. We do not have an exact answer for you but will do our best to make the show a success.
Q: What is the time frame that brands can be “live” during the three-day show?
A: Brands can be “live” from 10am-6pm CST
Q: What if the live chats get too overwhelming with lots of consumers asking questions at the same time?
A: We don’t imagine this to be the case as attendees can schedule a “private chat” with you. We will also be offering an FAQ pop-up screen when an attendee clicks on the live chat that should answer many of their questions about your company and products.
Q: Will there be an Influencer Category?
A: Yes. Influencers, like Community Partners, will have their own category. They will be able to showcase their recipes, blog, videos, etc.
Q: Can I sponsor the Influencer Category?
A: Yes, the Influencer Zone is available to sponsor for $8,000 and limited to three sponsors.
Q: Will my brand be able to communicate with the influencers like at the live Festivals?
A: We will be creating a program for you to reach out to the influencers. Please stay tuned for more information.
Q: On my booth page, can I have a short questionnaire for attendees to answer (maybe about new product launches, flavors, etc.)?
A: If you would like to have a questionnaire, you can include that in a contest/giveaway, if you are a higher level sponsor.
Q: Why are you not having attendees pre-register?
A: The site is currently being built and we do not have the ability to pre-register attendees until the site is active. Until then, interested attendees are joining our email list. We will send them an invite to register once the site is live.
