Future Ready > 21st Century

October 5-7
Minneapolis Marriott Northwest

Registration is open!


EXHIBITOR INFORMATION
ITEM (Information and Technology Educators of Minnesota) would like to invite you to exhibit at our 2017 Fall Conference. The theme this year is "Future Ready > 21st Century." We like to provide an opportunity for our attendees to connect and collaborate with our exhibitors to continue the partnerships that benefit students and enhance learning in our schools.

Attendees at our conference include library media specialists, technology integrationists, technology directors as well as staff, teachers, library students, and others who benefit from this great conference.

We're at the Minneapolis Marriott Northwest again this year with exhibitor space conveniently located along the traffic areas. You'll be able to interact with attendees during breaks and transitions between sessions, as well as the multiple times in the schedule specifically dedicated to allow attendees to visit the exhibits.

Due to a conflicting event, exhibitor move-in will be Friday morning beginning at 6:00 a.m. The hall will be officially open from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm with dedicated vendor time built into the schedule.

We're pleased that we'll be working with A&N again this year. Forms you may need are available below.
