Booth and Equipment

IQT portfolio companies participating in the expo are invited to have three attendees to set up and staff the exhibit.

Depending on the nature of your technology, you may choose to bring physical hardware, live software, video, slides or other tools to help demo your technology. Though wireless Internet will be available, we strongly suggest bringing slides or video as a backup option in the event connectivity becomes unreliable. All demo items will need to fit inside your exhibit space, and operate using standard wall power.

IQT will provide all expo companies with a standard 8'x6' booth, a six foot table, two stools, a flat panel monitor with HDMI connectivity and cables, draped back wall with company branded hanging sign and a standard power strip.

We strive to maintain a cohesive look and feel throughout the expo hall to ensure that the technologies are the focal point of the event. We cannot provide larger exhibit spaces, accommodate larger booths or additional banners. Thank you for your understanding!
