Take advantage of this unique opportunity to engage with CT educators, state agencies, towns and libraries to drive awareness, visibility, and demand for your business! Act now to reserve your table as space is limited.
As a sponsor of the Connecticut Education Network (CEN) Conference, you will receive prominent and official acknowledgements in our conference materials (print and online), and a 6’ x 2.5’ vendor table on the day of the conference (May 12, 2017). Sponsorship puts your company’s name foremost in the minds of IT decision makers for Connecticut’s schools, libraries, municipalities, and state agencies.
Sponsorship opportunities are available to fit any budget. Below you will find the details and advantages of our existing options; however a customized sponsorship package can be developed to meet your needs. Sponsorships are available on a first-come, first-served basis, so act now to engage with this group of decision-makers from information technology. The deadline for being able to have your logo included on our t-shirt is March 31, 2017. Full vendor details will be emailed following completion of sponsorship registration (with instructions on where to send materials, how to access power, etc. at conference location).
Sponsors can choose to submit a speaker proposal and will go through the review process; however speaking roles are not meant to be sales pitches nor is acceptance guaranteed. Vendor table space is the appropriate place for product demonstrations and explanations, speaking slots are designed to be more general, addressing a need or problem of the community. The call for speakers is launched (see session proposal tab) and topics are being accepted on a rolling basis until January 15, 2017.
This year’s conference will be held on May 12, 2017 at The Connecticut Convention Center, 100 Columbus Blvd #400, Hartford, CT 06103. Our previous three conferences have exceeded expectations, and we are predicting an even higher turnout yet for 2016 (2015 saw 450 registered participants).
