Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Will I receive contact information for the attendees?
A: Yes, except for those that opt out. We will provide this electronically 1 month before the conference, plus updates for late signups.

Q: Can I create my own session or be a presenter?
A: Generally we don’t allow exhibitors to create sessions unless they have submitted a session and been chosen through the Call for Sessions process. You may sponsor a session if you like.

Q: Can I attend the sessions?
A: We allow exhibitors to attend plenary sessions and any receptions and meals we have, but we ask that you do not solicit our members during those times. To attend the full conference, you must be a Professional Partner member to register.

Q: Will I get a lot of foot traffic?
A: The tables are located in the center of all the activity, the large hallway that connects all the breakout rooms and the ballroom at the hotel.

Q: I’m interested in doing something with you beyond the conference, are you interested?
A: We like to build long-term relationships with our sponsors, please contact Steve Phallen at 614-914-2244 or to discuss your ideas.
