Absolutely!  We encourage all booths to host a raffle on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday evenings to encourage attendees to stop by and leave business cards.  If you plan on participating in a raffle, please let the Becker's Events Team know what you'll be raffling.  We will then arrange a time to stop by your booth on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday evenings and announce the winners.
