ITNS Virtual Annual Meeting FAQs

Virtual exhibit and sponsorship opportunities are available on the ITNS website. The virtual exhibit hall will include features that will allow exhibitors to share, network, engage attendees in real-time, drive traffic, and highlight their products as each company would be able to in a 'live' exhibit environment.

Please contact the ITNS Professional Relations and Development Manager, Mary Paulson for any other exhibit or promotional questions.
The Exhibit Hall will have specific hours just like the live meeting.
