Eligibility & participants
The Congress Expo Passport game is open to all members of the public, Congress attendees, association conference organizers and anyone that attends Congress Expo. Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences staff, Board members, and Federation contractors are not eligible.

Contest period
Starting at 09:00 Eastern time on Saturday, May 27, 2017 to 14:00 Eastern time Friday, June 2, 2017. Individuals can participate by collecting their Passport at the Congress Registration Desk or at the Federation booth both located in Congress Expo in the Mattamy Athletic Centre, at Ryerson University. Registration to Congress is not required to receive a Passport. In order to be eligible, Passports must be submitted by the contest closing time 14:00 Eastern time Friday, June 2, 2017.

How to participate and have a successful entry
The Passport will be attached to the Congress Essentials guide and also available for pick up at the Registration Desk and the Federation booth in Congress Expo. Individuals may visit any participating exhibitor’s booth in Congress Expo and receive a stamp on the passport from the exhibitor’s booth staff in the allocated location for that exhibitor on the Passport. You must receive at least 20 stamps (one per exhibitor) to have a successful entry. You can drop off your completed Passport at the Federation booth (#11) located in Expo. The draw will be made by Thursday, June 29, 2017 and the winners will be contacted directly via the contact information (name, organization, email address or telephone) supplied on the Passport. Individuals are restricted to one entry per person. Entries without 20 valid stamps on the form will be considered invalid and not entered into the final prize draw. In order to ensure entries are valid there will be four colours of stamps handed out to exhibitors. If you have a stamp colour for an exhibitor that is incorrect that stamp will not count towards the minimum 20 stamps required for a completed Passport.
