By YSN Staff

Next week’s Summit 2022 will be jam-packed with insights, innovation, and initiatives. But the icing on the cake will be a rich grab bag of sweepstakes, prizes, contests and giveaways by exhibitors and AVB.

First up is the BrandSource Check-In Challenge. The premise is simple: The BrandSource Region with the most check-ins at registration will receive $1,000 toward its summer meeting. In addition, all members who check in by 7:30 p.m. on Sunday (March 6) will be automatically entered into a drawing for two tickets to a Las Vegas entertainment show, courtesy of Serta/Beautyrest.

Speaking of Serta, the mattress maker will be sending one lucky winner on a $20,000 trip of a lifetime, with a choice of an African safari, a luxury ski trip to Vail, Colo., an exclusive Bahamas getaway, or seats at Super Bowl LVII. There’s also be giveaways of a Serta Artic and a Beautyrest Black bed, so be sure to stop by the booth to enter.

Continuing the football theme, Whirlpool will be holding an Ultimate Tailgating Package Giveaway that includes a 65-inch Sony TV; a 32GB, 4K Apple TV streaming media box; a Traeger grill with accessories; a custom subscription to the Butcher Box meat delivery service; and a Yeti Hopper Flip 12 portable cooler. Eligible dealers will receive one entry by registering at the Whirlpool booth on Tuesday (March 8) from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. and Wednesday (March 9) from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m., when the Grand Prize winner will be drawn.

The sports theme extends to the Electrolux booth, where authorized dealers can enter a Hole in One drawing for one of five prizes ranging from $500 in show cash to $5,000 toward a digital campaign. Contestants must be present for the drawings, which will be held at 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday (March 8), along with Sonos speaker consolation prizes valued at $399 each.

There’ll also be electronics aplenty at the Tempur Sealy booth, where placing orders will enter attendees in a tech drawing for one of nine devices, including a pair of Apple AirPods Max; an Oculus VR set; a Google Nest thermostat; and a Roomba robotic vacuum.

Elsewhere, Samsung will be giving away a robotic vacuum of its own — the Jet Bot — along with a Jet 70 cordless vac and Clean Station that automatically and hygienically empties the dustbin.

And once your place is neat and tidy, you can throw a party with Danby’s $1,800 Party Package, which includes the company’s 38-bottle wine cooler; 21-inch, 5.4-cubic-foot-capacity Kegerator; and 2-pound tabletop ice maker. All dealers stopping by the Danby booth will be registered, and the lucky winner (selected after the show) will receive the package via prepaid freight.

Not to be outdone, GE Appliances will be holding a “TikTok Challenge” that will give social media-savvy members a chance to earn up to $500 in GE digital marketing. BrandSource dealers can compete for the funds, to be executed by AVB Marketing, by undertaking one or more of tasks, including creating a GEA TikTok video clip for sharing at Summit ($100) and playing GEA’s “Spin to Win” sweepstakes at the GEA booth ($100). Attendees should visit the booth to participate.

And last but certainly not least, YourSource News invites all members to the Show Central booth to try their hand at Jumbo Plinko. Prizes will include Bose’s around-ear headphones and Revolve and Micro model Bluetooth speakers, courtesy of Expert Warehouse; a GE Profile Opal ice maker; and five KitchenAid 3.5-cup food choppers, courtesy of Whirlpool.

Good luck, and may the best contestants win!
