Breakout session presentations by exhibitors are discouraged unless they are presenting with a client.  If an exhibitor would like to showcase their company and products, they must sign up for the Platinum level, which guarantees 30 minutes to highlight their company and products.

All accepted presenters must register and pay the conference registration fee. Acceptance as a presenter does not register you for the conference — registration fees are required.
