Tradeshow Program (PDF)

This event is free to attendees! Unit leaders, committee members, unit youth leaders and others involved in Scouting should attend.

The 2018 Tradeshow of Scouting will be held on Monday, June 4, 2018 at The Birchwood Manor, 111 North Jefferson Road in Whippany, New Jersey from 5:45 – 9:00 pm.

Vendors host tables offering programs, service projects, fun times, education programs and events that can be an integral part of your unit’s calendar. Visit these tables and pick up information and get your questions answered.

As this year’s vendors sign up, they will be listed under the 2018 tab. Many events are run by volunteer committees in Patriots’ Path Council. From the Alumni committee to the Youth Executive committee, table abound in the ballroom area with information and ideas to make your 2018-2019 Scouting year GREAT! Stop by and see what’s in store for your group. This years’ attending groups are listed under the PPC Groups Exhibiting tab.

Stop by and greet your volunteer district leaders that plan many district events (klondikes, cub camping, troop camping, etc.). Towns in Patriots’ Path Council are part of a geographical district. If you don’t know which district you are in, ask at the registration/welcome desk on your way in and they will let you know.

Door Prizes: Some vendors and committees donate door prizes. They will have buckets on their table for you to put your tickets in. There are two drawings held and you must be present to win. Everyone that attends will receive some door prize tickets. More details on ways to earn more tickets are coming but preregistering and bringing someone that has not attended before are ways to earn more tickets!

Door Prizes

You must be present to win – Prizes not picked up by 9:00 pm are forfeit! Door prizes are subject to change.

Door prizes are a fun feature of the Tradeshow. Please note, you must pick up your prize that night by 9pm or it is forfeited. When you pick up your registration packet, door prizes are included – see the tab, How to Earn Door Prizes, for things to do to increase the number of door prize tickets that you receive (info available soon). As you visit tables in the ballroom, door prize donors will have a bag on their table for door prize tickets. The actual door prize will be on display during the Tradeshow in a separate room.

There will be two door prize drawings. Door prize ticket bags will be picked up at 7:00pm for the early door prize drawing and 8:00pm for the later door prize drawing. Your tickets must be in buckets by 7:00pm and 8:00pm. The door prizes are donated by exhibitors, thus the bucket to put the door prize tickets in are located on the donor’s table in the main ballroom. (If the donor is not present at the Tradeshow, another table will be assigned.)

A list of door prizes and the assigned table number will be available at the registration table and on the Patriots’ Path Council app. You can download the app from your app store searching with Patriots’ Path. The table numbers are assigned in late May, so this information will not be available prior to the event.

Door prizes are on display during the Tradeshow. The tickets must be in the buckets by 7pm for the first drawing and 8pm for the second drawin. At 7:30 and 8:30 the winners will be displayed on a screen in the Lobby by registration. If you are a winner, ask for a claim ticket from the Door Prize committee in the Lobby. Then proceed to the Gilwell Park door prize room with your ticket to claim your prize before 9pm. During pick up time, the Gilwell Park room will be closed except to door prize winners.

You must be present to win – Prizes not picked up by 9:00 pm are forfeit! Door prizes will be listed here as they are donated.
In late May each door prizes will be assigned either the 7 or 8pm drawing time.
