Similar to traditional BINGO, conference delegates will try to get two lines of five in a row on their BINGO card either vertically, horizontally, or diagonally.
However, this is no ordinary BINGO card. Each square contains a prompt that will guide delegates to meet new people and learn new things! Attached to the BINGO card is a list of prompts that match each BINGO square.
Once you have two sets of four in a row, record your responses to these prompts on a separate page and email it to email@example.com. The first two delegates to successfully submit their BINGO card and responses will each be awarded $25 cash.
