Question: How do I register for a booth or other sponsorships?
Answer:

Click on the “sponsorship opportunities” link in the left hand navigator. You can review the various options, review the exhibit brochure pdf, and pull down an Exhibit Hall floor plan. When you click on “register” you will be taken to a page where you can indicate you want to be an event sponsor. Each succeeding page will request information. By the third page, you will see a list of exhibitor, mobile app and advertising sponsor options. For the exhibitors, when you select premium or standard booth there will be a drop down menu which will indicate which of those booth spaces are still available. For all other sponsorship types you will see the remaining number of those sponsorships available and you can indicate the quantity you would like.
