    • Sponsorships at the platinum level and above have guaranteed presentations. IETA also does an all call for open presentations. These presentations are selected by the IETA board based on presentations we believe attendees would most like to see at the show. Presentations that provide training, certifications, have a broad range to attract the most attendees will have the highest chance of being selected. Submission will be accepted until October 10, 2021 If you are interested in presenting please fill out this form.
  11. Booth Selection
    • IETA provides booth placement based on time registered at each sponsor level. The first to register at the highest sponsorship level will receive first choice of booth placement. This is for all levels except Silver where the IETA board will choose placement based on time of registration.
    • Booth selection begins on December 20, 2021 or sooner once we have sold out of booth space. (Note: the faster everyone responds to our emails at the gold level and higher for booth placement the quicker we can assign booth space and provide booth numbers) We appreciate your help in this.
