BTA Event Sponsorships - Exhibitor Info
Share |


Each year, the districts of the Business Technology Association host educational and networking events that are well received by both dealer attendees and exhibiting sponsors. These are not convention-center events in some cavernous exhibit hall, but they are smaller, hotel-based events where all dealer attendees have plenty of opportunities to interact with one another and with exhibitors. In 2017, the association will host five events. In each case, the focus will be on providing leading-edge educational opportunities in relaxing, welcoming venues.



BTA event sponsorship sign-ups start at 10 a.m. Central on Thursday, Nov. 17.


Click here to request sponsorship information (you must be a BTA member to exhibit).

Each event will provide upgrade opportunities for those wanting to secure special sponsorship opportunities such as sponsorship of a cocktail reception, breakfast, lunch, breaks, an evening at the ballpark or another special networking event.

Make plans now to be among the vendors connecting with dealers at BTA's events. All you have to do is click the above registration link and fill out the form, providing your commitment as an exhibiting sponsor. BTA will then invoice you for individual events you have selected, prior to each event.

The base level sponsorship for each event is $2,500 and includes attendance for two people; additional registrants will be required to register as attendees.

You will be notified by BTA as to whether or not your (up to) three exhibit spaces are confirmed. Likewise, you will be notified in ample time prior to the fourth and fifth event selection as to whether exhibit space is available to you.
