Sponsoring companies will also be noted in our pre- and post- event coverage.

Judging: We need industry professionals to attend the event from 8:30 to 4:30pm, assessing approximately 12 projects out of the 47 in the exhibition (the ones related as closely as possible to your area of expertise). Judges will be on a team of 3-4 professionals. Each student group will deliver a presentation of approximately 10 minutes long, outlining the scope and design of their project, and then will demonstrate it. Judges will score the group, according to a set of guidelines, and have the opportunity to ask the group questions. Scores will be tallied, and cash prizes will be awarded to the top 3 teams in each category. Judges attending on behalf of a company will have their company logo included on our background slide show, are welcome to bring a company banner, and provide promotional material to hand out. Judges will be provided with lunch, beverages and snacks throughout the day, as well as a complimentary parking pass.
