Annual Conference

 

  •  2022 KTB Camp Conference

    The 55th Annual Keep Texas Beautiful Conference
    June 27-29, 2022 • Austin, Texas
     

    Keep Texas Beautiful is a network of dedicated Texans working together to make our state the best place to live, work and play. We equip local partners and affiliates with the tools they need to build vibrant, engaged communities. Founded in 1967, Keep Texas Beautiful has 55 years of experience deploying resources for local clean-up, recycling and youth engagement activities. Everything we do is focused on preventing litter and mobilizing volunteers to take action across the state.

    Our annual conference brings communities together to share, learn, and celebrate. After two years of limited interactions and virtual conferences, we are excited to be gathering in person and we hope that you can join us for our reunion!

    Meals

    Your exhibitor registration fee entitles you to one ticket to each breakfast and lunch on the days you are exhibiting. Dinner is not included but tickets to the GCAA Dinner can be purchased separately. We encourage you to join the attendees for meals, as this affords you an excellent networking opportunity. Additional attendees must pay the single ticket conference registration price to attend the meal functions.  If you will have more than one representative staffing your booth and need to purchase additional single event tickets, please register them appropriately.

     

    Space assignments for exhibits accepted by Keep Texas Beautiful are made on a first-come, first-served basis. Priority of space assignment will be based on the date and time the application and payment is received. If a number of applications are received at the same time, the company’s history as an exhibitor will be the next consideration for “ranking” the applications. In addition, conference sponsors receive preferred placement.

     

    Attendee List

    Following the conference, KTB will provide a final attendee list with email contact information.

     

    Prize Drawings/Booth Handouts

    As attendees visit your booth, you can collect business cards and valuable contacts by offering a prize or gift.  Please note that each exhibitor is responsible for the logistics of their drawing(s), as well as the winner announcement and prize distribution. You are also at will to hand out flyers, promotional materials, and snacks at your booth. 

     

    Exhibitor Bingo

    To encourage as many attendees as possible to visit our exhibitors’ booths and learn about your great products and services, conference attendees will have access to BINGO cards listing all exhibitor names. You may stamp or sign off that someone has visited your booth. Completed cards will be entered into a drawing to win a KTB gift bag.

    Exhibitor Benefits

    One (1) complimentary conference registration that includes (1) ticket to each meal event (with exception of the GCAA banquet). Excellent visibility and the opportunity to network with conference attendees. Listing in online conference information website. Listing in the on-site program (contract must be received by Friday, May 20, 2022, for this benefit.) Listing in Beautiful Texas Quarterly and weekly affiliate communications (KTB newsletters with an estimated audience of over 5,000.)

     

    Shipping

    Exhibitors may ship goods directly to the hotel, but items should not arrive earlier than (5) days prior to the conference start date. Exhibitors are responsible for all charges relating to shipping and storage of their items. All shipments should notate arrival for the 2022 Annual Conference.
