An example of a booth set up can be found here

We strive to maintain a cohesive look and feel throughout the Tech Expo to ensure that your technologies are the focal point of the event. Due to space constraints, we cannot provide, and ask that you refrain from bringing, larger exhibit spaces, pop-up banners, signage, or larger monitors. Thank you for your understanding! 

Please reach out to with any questions. 

Who from our company is expected to attend and exhibit?

You are invited to bring up to (2) two total attendees to set up and staff your booth. Each individual from your company must register for the event by Monday, August 21 Please reach out to with any questions.

How is Showcase different from CEO Summit?

The Showcase is a one-day event that features an expo, very comparable to the CEO Summit, and a general session agenda made up of presentations entirely from IQT. Unlike Summit, there are no outside or portfolio company speakers. 

My company was invited to expo, but we don't have the resources to staff a booth. Can we still attend without participating in the expo?

Absolutely! If you feel you do not have the resources to staff a booth at the event, please simply let us know that you plan to participate as a general attendee. Of note, if you register under the attendee category "Exhibitor", we assume your acceptance of our invitation to exhibit.

Our logo and/or company tagline has changed. How do we ensure our signage is up to date?

If your company logo, tagline, or general product details have changed, please email by Monday, August 21 to ensure we have the correct information and materials for your company expo signage.

Will there be secure Internet access?

IQT will host a private wireless network available to all exhibitors. Given the high number of individuals and limited connectivity, as a precaution we highly recommend preparing a video demo ahead of time rather than depending on Internet-reliant presentations.

Can I ship materials to the venue ahead of time?

Our tradeshow provider, Premier Exhibits, will manage inbound and outbound shipping for exhibitors - review the exhibitor kit for more details. Please provide  your company name on the shipping forms in lieu of a booth number. 

Are hotel accommodations available?

A block of rooms has been reserved at the Renaissance for Showcase attendees for the nights of Monday, 9/25 and Tuesday, 9/26, at a rate of $279.00 per night. Attendees are welcome to make reservations within the guaranteed rate block by here. Reservation requests must be made by September 6, 2023 in order to receive the group rate OR until the room block is filled. Please book early!

Does our booth need to be "staffed" throughout the entire event?

The expo will be open from 9:30 a.m. through the evening reception, which will be held inside the Tech Expo and will conclude at 6 p.m. While there will be times of higher attendee traffic, such as during the lunch break from 12 - 2 p.m., we encourage you to have at least one person at the booth at all times.
