Sponsorship/Exhibit Opportunities

Duane GoupellI would like to cordially invite you to participate as a sponsor of the 2017 NCTA Conference September 13-15 at The Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Last year’s conference in Seattle, WA, attracted more than 400 testing professionals from across  North America. In addition, our third virtual conference with its expanded number of  offerings was a huge success, drawing several hundred additional participants. We look  forward to continued expansion in both areas this year.

This year, we are again offering sponsors a variety of options to publicize their companies and offer support to  NCTA. Included are several exciting digital options, including recognition during the Virtual Conference as well  as sponsor integration in the Conference Program App. Link to Sponsorship Booklet>>  Link to Online Form>>
