EXHIBITOR INFORMATION

ITEM (Information and Technology Educators of Minnesota) would like to invite you to exhibit at our 2018 Fall Conference. The theme this year is "Learning I.T. Together." 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 Arrowwood Resort in Alexandria, MN this year with exhibitor space conveniently located near the meeting rooms. The keynote session, meals, vendors, authors and the bookstore will all be in the same spacious room so there will be many great opportunities for interaction between sessions, before and after meals, and during the multiple times in the schedule specifically dedicated to allow attendees to visit the exhibits.

Exhibitor move-in will be Thursday evening beginning at 4:00 p.m. The hall will be officially open from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm on Friday 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 will be available soon.
