    What is the site visit all about? What do I need to do to prepare?

    If your company is chosen as a finalist, then a group of judges will be coming out in January for a site visit. The date of the visit is listed on your application form. Each award finalist has a set amount of time, so it's best if you have a presentation ready. Please refer to the site tour guidelines provided in the application to help you organize & plan for the visit. Most award categories are given one hour for the site tours, so manage your time accordingly. 
    This is your opportunity to really impress the judges and expand on the information you provided in your application. You will also be scored on the site tour in the following areas: 1) time management 2) quality of presentation and 3) Quality of Q & A.
    Remember... this is your chance to WOW the judges and show them why your company is deserving of the award!

    What if my company representative has changed?

    Closer to the gala, the chamber will be forwarding the list of all the award finalist representatives.  This list of names is used by Wizards of Video to call up the award recipients should your company be chosen as the winner.  Prior to the event, if there are any changes to your company representative, please inform Julia at the Chamber. If there are any last minute changes the day of the event, please notify the Wizards staff at the tech booth of the revision.
