Join MTUG for our 29th annual conference -- The Annual MTUG Information Technology Summit and Tradeshow!
MTUG's IT summit is the premier technology infrastructure conference in the state, with workshop topics that speak to the concerns and interests of IT professionals in all organizational sectors and industries. The exhibitors on the tradeshow floor will run the full array of IT services, from telco and ISP providers, managed services providers, contact center providers, training, IT management and support, software licensing and equipment dealers, data and storage management, and more.
Be an MTUG Sponsor in 2016!
MTUG runs educational programs from September to May each year, made possible by the generous contributions of our IT Summit Sponsors. In 2015, in response to interest from our IT community, MTUG developed four new sponsorship opportunities -- Bag Sponsor, Lanyard Sponsor, Breakfast Sponsor, and Dessert Sponsor. These non-exhibiting sponsorships can be combined with a booth purchase for added visibility, or purchased alone. Our Gold, Silver, Bronze and Lighthouse sponsorships from previous years are also available.
Exhibiting Sponsorships (include 1 or 2 booths)
Community Sponsorships (no booths included)
Spotlight Sponsorships (support a high visibility element of the event)
