Society Showcase is getting a makeover for the FGS 2015 conference. If you've attended an FGS conference in the past, you've seen Society Showcase in the exhibit hall. It's that section of tables for FGS member societies that wanted a presence at the conference without renting a full booth. It's been a focal point of FGS conference exhibit halls. And it's getting even better.
When the FGS and RootsTech 2015 Expo Hall opens February 12 in Salt Lake City, a new and improved Society Showcase will be located with the FGS booth. Visitors and attendees will "travel" the U.S. and around the world discovering what specific resources genealogical societies can provide the individual researcher. They will follow ancestors' migration patterns by moving from society to society learning what is available to researchers in each locality while collecting brochures, asking questions, and connecting with like-minded genealogists and family historians.
FGS member societies and delegates should look for an email this week with all the details for participating. Tables and rental fees are not part of the new format. Society Showcase will be available to FGS member societies free of charge. You don't want to miss this incredible opportunity to reach thousands of potential new members.
If you are attending FGS 2015, don't miss Society Showcase. A society in that place where your brick-wall ancestor lived just might have the answers you seek.
