Sponsor, Exhibit, and Advertise

The Gwinnett Technical College – Alpharetta North Fulton campus is a beautiful new facility that offers a single building for our conference. With three floors, the first has a large bright lobby, which will be our conference welcome and registration area. The second and third floors hold all of our session rooms, which are joined by wide walkways full of light. An advantage of having the conference all in one building is that there will be attendee traffic throughout the building so that exhibitors can attract attendees between sessions. To encourage attendee engagement, we will have an exhibitor scavenger hunt in which attendees place stickers in their conference booklet showing they engaged with exhibitors to be entered into a prize drawing.
