A note about the partially pre-sold status of the 2021 Summit's Exhibit Floor:
The MTUG Tradeshow sponsorships and exhibit booths typically sell during a registration period from mid-December through mid-March. Due the pandemic-caused cancelation of the MTUG 2020 Summit, the upcoming 2021's Summit Exhibition floor has a number of spots already taken by carried-over exhibitors/sponsors from 2020. Please register early for the best chances for a booth on the 2021 Tradeshow floor. New Sponsorship/Exhibitor Registration Forms for the 2021 Summit will be posted this winter. You may also Contact Us here if you want to pre-register your intent to be a Sponsor or Exhibitor early and reserve a spot in the "booth choice" queue (sponsor/exhibitor prices will be the same as last year's rates [PDF]).
