Instructional Technology Conference

Exhibit Information

The Conference

The Instructional Technology Conference offers vendors of higher education instructional technology products and services the opportunity to reach hundreds of higher education professionals from more than two dozen states.

The number of exhibitors each year is limited to 14. This allows conference participants to focus more intensely on individual vendor exhibits. Exhibitors are able to spend more one-on-one time with conference participants to discuss and demonstrate their products and services.
