These companies may offer to help book your guest rooms for our conference at a discounted rate. MFOA is not affiliated with any of these groups. Please do not provide them your personal information or credit card details. MFOA has arranged room blocks directly with Blue Mountain Resort.

Included with your exhibitor package is the opportunity to donate prizes. There are two options outlined below that are available for you to participate in. Participation is complimentary to all registered exhibitors.

2) "In It to Win It" Delegate Contest: MFOA’s highly successful, ‘In It to Win It’ contest, housed within our conference mobile microsite, provides delegates with opportunities to collect points by completing various tasks throughout the conference. Delegates will be entered into a draw to WIN great prizes. Each participating booth will be provided with a unique ‘code’ and participating delegates can redeem points towards their overall score by collecting exhibitor codes.
