CBIC Gala Innovators Row Application - Submission Deadline April 27, 2018 @Midnight

The Charlottesville Business Innovation Council (CBIC) showcases Central Virginia entrepreneurs, innovators, and organizations that contribute significantly to the region's innovation ecosystem. CBIC will select as many as 30 representatives for an opportunity to showcase their products, ideas, services and innovations at CBIC's Innovators Row. For the past three years, Innovators Row was regaled as one of the attendees’ favorite portions of the evening, and last year attracted more than 400 attendees. This offers exemplary local exposure for Innovators Row participants.

We anticipate that each person/company selected for Innovators Row will be provided with approximately 4 feet of table/floor space along Innovators Row to demonstrate and amaze the assembled investors, entrepreneurs, business and civic leaders. More than 400 technology and innovation movers & shakers are expected to attend the CBIC Awards Gala at the Paramount Theater on Thursday, May 24, 2018. This is an amazing opportunity to showcase the innovation you have worked on and connect with individuals that could take your idea to the next level.

Applications to be considered for participation in CBIC’s Innovators Row are due by midnight Friday, April 27, 2018 There is no cost to apply, but if selected, there will be a single Innovators Row Exhibit Fee of $325, which includes your exhibitor space + two (2) all-access gala tickets for the pre and post ceremony receptions, the highly anticipated awards ceremony, innovators row, the after party, and complimentary downtown parking! The fee will be due no later than May 4th. Selected individuals or groups will be notified and announced by May 1st and promoted at the gala and via CBIC’s media channels.

Details for Participants
If selected, you will be able to setup a showcase on Innovators Row and will be required to purchase your Innovators Row exhibit space ($325 which includes two all-access gala tickets). We anticipate that each exhibit space will be approximately 4-feet of table space, a highboy cafe table, and/or equivalent floor space (read: we are getting creative this year!) for those exhibitors with floor units. Each exhibitor will need to have a person or two assigned and dedicated to work the table during the Innovators Row portion of the receptions. We want you to design and setup your table with a product or materials highlighting your innovation. This is a formal event and the exposure to leaders in the community is fantastic. We highly encourage dressing appropriately for such an event in order to put your best foot forward and attract the right kind of attention from participants.
