for their favorite “Best in Show” booth. Why not give them a reason to
choose your booth?! This is your opportunity to focus your efforts on
making your booth fun and memorable for attendees. If your booth is
selected by Conference attendees as “Best in Show,” your organization will win
a complimentary 10’x10’ booth for the 2016 NetVU Conference.
Become a Conference Sponsor
contact email@example.com to discover a variety of Conference sponsorship options to
receive additional exposure for your company.
Please make your reservations as early as
possible to take advantage of negotiated group rates. We encourage you to
book at one of our room block hotels to take advantage of the increased
networking, convenience to your booth area, proximity to the Convention Center,
and to keep costs at a minimum for NetVU and membership. Hotel details coming soon.
there are companies who may contact you and represent themselves as being the
official housing bureau or agency for the NetVU Conference in order to entice you
to make your conference hotel reservation with them. PLEASE NOTE, we are NOT
affiliated with these companies and they are attempting to bypass the official
housing booking procedure as outlined on our website. These companies can be
very aggressive, calling and emailing potential attendees multiple times over.
NetVU respects our Conference attendees' privacy and time and we would never
contact you in this manner. Furthermore, all correspondence would come from one
of our official email addresses. These companies are similar to
other Internet "Phishing" entities, and you should be wary about
providing them any information. The ONLY Way to ensure you are part of the
official NetVU Conference block, with a guaranteed reservation, is to make your reservation in mid-August when we open the block. Please note that even if these companies are legitimate, you have no
guarantee should you choose to book through them, nor are they likely to be available
to you after you make your reservation should you need to make any changes to
your reservation. Should you have any questions or concerns about this issue,
please feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 800.456.7799.
One complimentary registration is included with each 10’x10’ booth. You will receive a
special registration code that will allow you to register online. Once you have
your code, click here to
enter your login and password to register.
If you don’t have a
login and password, send an email to email@example.com, and we will provide you
with necessary registration information.
Exhibit Hall Only Registration
You may purchase an Exhibit Hall Only pass for $350 members/$410 non-members - includes lunch. Exhibit Hall Only pass will not include classes,
or Grand Finale Celebration tickets. Grand Finale tickets can be
purchased when you register online.
Provided you have a full Conference registration
we encourage you to attend the classes. Many are appropriate for you! (Exhibit
Hall Only passes are not eligible.)

additional insured, and shall provide NetVU with a waiver of subrogation.
E) The workers compensation policy shall
contain the following clauses: The certificate shall provide NetVU with a
