IT² 2023 Exhibit Hall

  • The IT2 Exhibit Hall
    The IT² 2023 Exhibit Hall is where IT is happening! This is where you can make connections and collaborate with colleagues, vendors and representatives from organizations from across the country! The IT² Exhibit Hall is unique in that exhibitors represent all components that make education technology tick, but at the same time our Exhibit Hall is small enough for you to be able to take time to make connections and ask questions with everyone!
    The Exhibit Hall will be on October 26, 2023 from 4:00 - 7:00 p.m. at the Willmar Event Center in Willmar, MN.  Appetizers will be served to attendees.
    Make sure to participate in our IT² 2023 Exhibit Hall activities for a chance to win one of our door prizes. Door prizes will be awarded to the winners on the last day of the conference.
