  1. Why don’t I receive ticket numbers for my purchased tickets?

Since the raffle is done digitally no ticket numbers are generated. The number of tickets you purchase indicates how many times your name is submitted into the digital raffle selection pool.

  1. Are ticket purchases verified by text or email or both? Does it differ depending on whether or not it was purchased by text or online?

Guests will receive an email regardless of how their purchase was made. If the guest purchased via text, they will also receive a text confirmation.

One (1) Raffle Ticket will be drawn randomly by SME Foundation to determine the winner of the prize on Wednesday, February 26, 2020, at the MineXchange 2020 SME Annual Conference & Expo. The name of the winning Raffle Ticket holder will be announced during the Tailgate Party at 12:45 pm in the Phoenix Convention Center exhibit hall prior to the close of the Expo.
