Innovation Stages - Become A Technical Program Content Supporter




DEADLINE EXTENDED!  For the first time exhibitors will be given the opportunity to be a Technical Program Content Supporter. The $5,000 supporter fee will allow your company to present on one of two Innovation Stages in the exhibit hall. The purpose of this new initiative is to allow exhibitors to share their innovations, knowledge, and best practices in a technical venue. These Content Supporters will be highlighted in all advance promotion for the T&D event, listed in the Final Program and on-site signage, thanking them for their contribution to the Technical Program. There are only 12 session times available so the selected winners will be highly regarded.
