In a complex and multi-platform world, no one product or company can solve all of IT's challenges. That's why you should come to BrainShare 2013, which promises to draw widely from throughout the IT community.

Organizations are constantly seeking new knowledge and products to help them piece together the perfect IT solution. Sponsor or exhibit at BrainShare 2013 and show attendees why you should be a part of their IT world. This document details the sponsorship and exhibition opportunities available this year. Combine these pieces to build a winning presence at BrainShare 2013.

2013 Highlights

  • Multiple Keynotes: Rather than an opening and closing keynote, this year we’ll feature multiple keynote addresses throughout the week.
  • Create your own world: Reserve private meeting rooms outside the show floor in full-day increments for a small fee.
  • Free sponsorship or exhibit space: Interested in getting your sponsorship or exhibition fee waived? Contact Amy Bishop for more information.

The Privileges of Sponsorship and Exhibition at BrainShare 2013

We want BrainShare 2013 to be an amazing experience for all our sponsors and exhibitors. We work hard to ensure your booth staff is happy and engaged with conference attendees. We’ll also help your staff get ready for the exhibit hall. To help create the most positive experience possible we are pleased to provide the following:

BrainShare hotel room block

Finding a comfortable, economic place to stay during BrainShare is important for your booth staff. They need to be fresh, on time and nearby to take advantage of all the conference networking opportunities. Each member of your staff—whether a registered participant or booth staff member—will receive access to the BrainShare room block at major Salt Lake City hotels. We provide free transportation to and from the Salt Palace for those staying within the BrainShare hotel room block. Rooms are subject to availability.

Meals

We invite your team to have breakfast and lunch each day of the conference.

Evening events

The networking continues during our evening events, where we provide food, beverages and entertainment.

More networking time

Our Meet the Experts event on Tuesday evening will take place in the exhibit hall this year, giving you an extra opportunity to discuss exhibits while relaxing and meeting others. There will be plenty of other opportunities for networking as well. Additional information will follow as it becomes available.
