Registration: All vendor booth reservations must be made in advance. One company per table, please.     Our venue, growing government attendance, as well as potential gathering size limits impacts allowable conference attendees.  We're requesting that you choose the sponsorship level to match the number of expected attendees.  There is no provision for additional vendor attendees, not multiple vendor attendees sharing a single attendance spot (not attendee rotation).  If you must send more attendees, consider reserving another table.
  


Be sure to choose a Vendor Registrant Type (sponsorship level) first; the first attendee is recorded along with the sponsorship level. Take note of the Registration type's allowed attendees.  You'll choose "Included Attendee" for the remaining attendees, paying attention to the attendee limit assigned to your chosen sponsorship level.  There is a hard limit of included attendees for your chosen sponsorship level. If you must have more attendees than allowed at your chosen sponsorship, you'll need to reserve additional tables to accommodate your remaining attendees.

Speaking Opportunities:  Our Conference Program Committee works hard to create an engaging and educational conference event.  Platinum sponsors are allotted a 1/2 hour time slot to speak on a vendor specific topic (if they choose).  Gold sponsors have the opportunity to present a vendor-agnostic topic chosen from the Program Committee's pre-defined topic list.  Sessions are coordinated, approved and scheduled through the Conference Program Committee.


Setup and Tear Down

You may setup Sunday from 1 p.m. until 4 p.m. Booth spaces are first come, first served. Be sure to arrive early to choose your ideal spot.  You may leave your display up through Wednesday morning.

Sunday Welcome Reception:
An informal reception will be held Sunday evening; you are encouraged to attend. The event provides an excellent opportunity for you to get acquainted with our membership. The reception features an assortment of finger food and beverages.

Tuesday Night Networking Event: 
Mi-GMIS sponsors a social event on Tuesday evening.  It usually consists of dinner and a networking opportunity event.  Vendors are encouraged to attend this event.

Tuesday Night Vendor Drawings:
Some of our vendors choose to provide a drawing item. You may decide to station a "fish bowl" throughout the conference to collect potential recipient's business cards.

Meals/Events Included (Name Badge Required):  All conference meals and events are included with your sponsorship.  We strongly support vendor participation in the conference.

Puzzle Promotion:  The first vendors to register and remit payment are entitled to puzzle pieces to distribute to government attendees.  A completed puzzle makes government attendees eligible for a special drawing, the conference door prize.  We've found it to be a great way to encourage our attendees to visit our vendors.  To ensure your participation, reserve and remit payment early.
