Call for Exhibitors 2015
Exhibitor Registration will open July 17, 2014
New Opportunity for our Exhibitors and School Administrators!
This year we've added a new METC Executive Session on Wednesday, February 11th at 10:30 a.m. in the Exhibit Hall. The session will attract school superintendents and business officials where they will come together to discuss a particular technology initiative. Immediately following the Executive Session, exhibitors will be invited to join the group for lunch - a great opportunity for you to make important connections and network with these key decision makers! For further questions, contact Karen Vaughan.
