If you had just 45 seconds to tell APTA EXPO 2017 attendees why they should visit your booth, what would you say? We challenge EXPO 2017 exhibitors to get creative and in 45 seconds or less, convince EXPO attendees why your company should be on their list of “must-see” exhibitors at EXPO 2017.

Submit a video and it will be put before our judges – the EXPO attendees themselves!


The winning video will be featured prominently on the EXPO website, promoted to EXPO attendees via email and social media channels before the show and will be shown onsite! You have the opportunity to stand out from other EXPO exhibitors and drive traffic to your booth for FREE. It’s a win-win – with all the extra views and visibility your video will receive, you’re a winner either way!


Submit your video here. All submissions will be visible on the Gallery page. Anyone can vote by clicking the heart aka LIKE button in the top left corner of their favorite video. Have fun, get creative and convince attendees that your booth is the place to be in October! All videos must be submitted by Sunday, August 27.


All videos must be submitted by Sunday, August 27. Voting will officially start on Monday, August 28. Anyone can vote, so make sure to tell all your friends and customers to LIKE your video.

  • Your video must include the show name, “APTA EXPO,” and your company name and booth number
  • Complete this form and submit your video here by Sunday, August 27.

All submissions will be visible on the Gallery page and voting will officially start on Monday, August 28. Anyone can vote, so make sure to tell all your friends and customers to LIKE your video. The winner will be the video with the most votes as of 5:00 PM ET on Friday, September 15. The winning exhibitor will be notified the week of September 18, and will then be promoted via social media, email, on the website and at the event.
