ACAAI Leaderboard Competition

Thank you to everyone who is participating in the Leaderboard Competition. Due to an early glitch in tabulating points, some early birds have already exceeded the 15,000 maximum points. This is due to excess points being awarded for the “briefcase” click action. Excess points will be deducted at the end of the meeting to ensure fair and accurate competition. Remember – if there is a tie for top scorer, there will be a drawing to determine the winner. And everyone who meets the 13,000 minimum points will be entered into a separate drawing. So keep playing and enjoy the competition!

Throughout the meeting, attendees can collect points to qualify for valuable prizes. After logging in to the virtual meeting platform, click on the trophy icon on the upper right corner of your screen to display the leaderboard. You’ll automatically earn tokens and points by visiting various booths in the exhibit hall and participating in other meeting activities. Check the leaderboard throughout the weekend to see who’s winning!

The College will not share, retweet or comment on tweets until each day’s contest is complete.

Each day’s winning tweet will have been posted that same day. Remember, our goal is to generate excitement and information sharing among allergy professionals and the public about the great learning happening at our meeting.

Only registered attendees of the ACAAI virtual Annual Scientific Meeting are eligible to win. ONLY tweets about the ACAAI virtual Annual Scientific Meeting will qualify, and must contain the meeting hashtag: #ACAAI20. Only individual attendees may win. Companies and media entities are not eligible. Promoted tweets are not eligible. Any tweet that is deemed disrespectful or not in keeping with professional standards will be disqualified.


$200 Amazon gift card each day to the top tweet. An individual may only win once during the meeting.

In case of a tie, winners will be determined in a drawing. Winners will be verified and notified the week of November 16.

Signature Drink

During the Annual Meeting, visit the Networking Lounge for some fun and relaxation. Want to try making our signature cocktail or mocktail? It’s a play on the Phoenix theme as well as a nod to allergists, and it’s called the “Breathe Easy.”

Assemble your ingredients in advance

  • Apple cider

  • Club soda

  • Gin

  • Lemon juice

  • Agave nectar (may substitute honey)

  • Cayenne pepper

  • Cinnamon stick

  • Apple slice

  • Fresh thyme

If you're making the mocktail version, skip the gin and use a sage garnish instead of thyme.

Check out the how-to video in the Networking Lounge to mix your own Breathe Easy!
