    What is an "Attendee Experience?"

    The overall virtual program is composed of two parts: the virtual live stream and an Attendee Experience Box. Each box will consist of special gifts that represent how we've overcome one of the most challenging periods in our generation's history. Your sponsorship contribution will go towards the curation of the tactile attendee experience. Along with the items we've selected to go in the box, attendees will receive your additional gift as added value.

    The purpose of this boxed experience is to remind our community of its greatness and to replicate the feeling we all leave with after attending the "live" annual banquet; hopefull, excited and inspired.

    How it works:

    • If you purchased a table or participated by donating to our auction in the past and enjoyed curating your centerpiece or creating an amazing gift basket this is your chance to showcase your creativity and continue to be a valuable partner of the banquet and the Chamber.
    • Instead of decorating you can curate your own custom package (box/basket/bag) to be raffled off during the event.
    • Each box is intended to showcase and highlight your business products and/or services.
    • You may curate this box for a group, a couple, a household, a small business, or even for one person. The Showcase is yours to share with the community in anyway you want.
    • Each Showcase will be displayed on the banquet landing page and will be raffled off throughout the virtual programming!
    • Winners of the Showcases and the "Best Showcase" will be announced during the livestream event.

    Showcases need to be delivered to the WVCC by February 19th. Showcases will be photographed and posted on the Chamber website for digital viewing and raffle bidding and votes for "Best Showcase." There is not required spend for your Showcase.
