Why Exhibit

The Annual Conference is CITE's biggest event of the year, and one you won't want to miss! 

Attendees of the CITE conference support all facets of IT including CTOs and Directors of Technology, Network Managers and Engineers, Data Base Administrators, Support, and Technicians. We also attract Classroom Teacher, Administrators, and District and County Superintendents. Our conference is the home for IT decision makers who are working on projects or always looking for new partners to improve the systems in their LEA.

Q: When should I reserve my hotel room? 
A: As soon as room block links are available! We always sell out of the main hotels around September. We do not recommend overbooking rooms and canceling later--we have a 30-day cancellation policy and we’ll periodically review booking lists and contact those who have booked multiple rooms to be sure they need all rooms.

Q: Are there exhibitor discounts available? 
A: Unfortunately there are not any exhibitor discounts available at this time.

Q: What meals are included in the booth fee?
A: Your registration fee includes the following meals. Prior attendees have requested that we add a protein item to the breakfasts--we are doing our best to affordably add that and will have more information later! “Heavy appetizers” means things like chicken skewers, quesadillas, bruschetta, etc. 
  • Monday
    • Welcome Reception - Heavy Appetizers
  • Tuesday
    • Expo Hall Opening Reception - Heavy Appetizers
  • Wednesday
    • Exhibitor Breakfast
    • Boxed Lunch

Q: Can I access sessions with an exhibitor badge?
A: Sessions and certain meals are only open to attendees under the Educational, Affiliate, One-Day, or Retired/Student registration types. To access conference sessions and attendee activities, an exhibitor would have to upgrade their badge from a booth staff registration to Affiliate registration.

Q: What if you cancel the event?
A: We believe we can plan to safely hold this event in November 2024. We would only cancel if the pandemic worsened and local/state/federal governments imposed stay-at-home orders. If that happens, we will make adjustments and contact all exhibitors with options.
