How does the event work
ShowStoppers is the premier media showcase event hosting receptions numerous times during the course of the year.
The ShowStoppers reception is a 3 or 4 hour – turnkey table top showcase where companies set up their products for demonstration. We invite qualified journalists, industry leaders into the room. They work their way from table to table, discussing products, conducting interviews – all fueled by great food and drink.
