Here’s what we’re giving away @ InfoComm ’13


I’m going to InfoComm

Wonder Woman and Catwoman will be your MCs, BUT you will need to give your business card to one of the rAVe Team members for your chance to play THE GAME 4. You may just hear your name called out by Wonder Woman or Catwoman to step up and play THE GAME 4. If you don’t hear your name at first, stick around – we’ll have multiple players at each sponsor booth!

gamepage-plinko2Once you have your chip in hand, take aim and try your best to hit the grand prize slot — the sponsor’s logo. If you don’t hit that, don’t worry – there are still nine other possible slots with AWESOME prizes you can win!

Each round will have a grand prize winner – the lucky player who lands their chip on a sponsor logo first*! Grand prizes include 45″ HDTV’s, Windows Tablets, iPads and HD Cameras!

The grand prize winner will then be automatically entered in rAVe’s Friday Tournament of Champions (more info below) and in the running to the win the SMART Car!

But, best of all, everyone who shows up gets a FREE rAVe t-shirt – even if you don’t get to play, everyone who shows up to a sponsor’s booth (see times below) gets the shirt!!!

In addition to the scheduled times at the exhibitor booths listed above, the rAVe Team will be on the tradeshow floor looking for you in your rAVe gear. If spotted you may have a chance to play PLINKO on the spot or given a prize! So wear your rAVe t-shirt with pride!

*if no participant’s chip lands on the sponsor logo, a business card will be randomly chosen from the entire entry pool at that sponsor booth and that person will be entered into the SMART Car Tournament of Champions
