Host a Booth at the Expo

Does your department want to engage directly with Process Palooza attendees? We’re inviting campus units to host a booth in the Expo area to communicate their department’s

  • Process improvements
  • News and updates
  • Success stories
  • Services
  • And more!

Process Palooza attendees are engaged, informed and eager to learn what you’ve been up to!

We request a raffle item from each Expo participant. Your program’s name will be announced with the raffle, so the more exciting the prize, the better. Alternatively, you can choose to provide the competition award prizes instead of a raffle item. If you’d like to do this instead, we’d ask for a prize that can be given to six people.

Note, all tables (booths) are 6ft long and have a tablecloth and internet. Power can be supplied as needed.

Please respond as soon as possible to claim a booth. Availability is limited and will be closed on or before February 6, 2020.

Contact Angela Miller at to claim a booth or ask questions.
