GTEC Exhibitor Update

Dear ,

It may be the dog days of summer, but we are already counting down the days to GTEC 2008. Although quality exhibit space and sponsorship opportunities are still available, you'll see below that the window to get involved in GTEC is slowly closing, as organizations continue to confirm their involvement daily.

As you know, GTEC's Showcase underwent a dramatic transformation with the move to the Westin Ottawa Hotel this year. The move created an opportunity to redesign the floor plan with more innovative turnkey concepts and a variety of space options. In response to the significant demand for raw (traditional) exhibit space, GTEC recently added 10 more spaces to the plan, and now has these plus, 36 8-foot and 6-foot turnkeys available on a first come first served basis. Beyond these, the only remaining availability is within the 'Experience Government 2.0 Pavilion' and our private executive suites.

Organizations that are interested in participating in GTEC this year should investigate the remaining exhibit spaces and confirm their exhibit as soon as possible, as there is no further room for expansion. Once the plan is full, there will be no other space to accommodate exhibits this year.

Please contact Leslie Johnston to inquire on the status of our available exhibits and pods.

New Feature!  »  The 'Experience Government 2.0 Pavilion'

The area is located in the foyer of the Confederation Ballrooms, and consists of 4-foot kiosks, pre e-quipped with power, internet, and a computer terminal. All the exhibitor needs to add is a demonstration or presentation. By designing a well-crafted presentation, and planning for lead retrieval through a login page, you are able to demonstrate your solution as well as develop a valuable contact list.

Many government 2.0 technologies are geared to improving the user experience, and the Experience Government 2.0 Pavilion creates an opportunity for government service delivery professionals to experience technologies at their own pace. Each Kiosk in the Pavilion includes the following:

Sample Kiosk: 40 x 55 x 8
  • A 1m X 1.4m hardwall display counter
  • Overhead signage with company name
  • A desktop computer
  • Power
  • Wireless Internet
  • Installation and dismantling
  • Listing in the Technology Solutions Index
  • Listing in the GTEC Event Guide
  • Listing on the GTEC website
  • VIP Invitations and Complimentary Passes for your clients
  • Comprehensive Exhibitor Services Manual
  • 24-hour professional security
  • Facility floor carpet
  • Nightly vacuuming of your booth
Your rate $2595 per unit

Take advantage of a unique way to have delegates experience your Government 2.0 solutions!

Quality Sponsorships Still Available

Many of our premier sponsorships have been taken by longstanding gold and Silver partners at GTEC. These organizations have bundled powerful marketing and profile opportunities to create a unique presence fort their organizations across the event. Still, there are some premium sponsorships available at the exhibition, and the ever popular Distinction Awards Gala.

Normally, our sponsorship opportunities would be few at this point in the development of the event, but the change in venue and layout has created new sponsorships for our partners. As a result, some of high profile sponsorships that have been 'locked up' for years have become available. Please contact Leslie Johnston to inquire on the status of our sponsorship opportunities.
