Vendor Presentation Information
Vendor Presentations

Sponsoring vendors (Exhibitor level & above) have two different ways that they can present at Interact 2018:

Co-Presentation with a Client

A client that is a HIUG member may submit a session proposal for consideration that includes your company as a co-presenter. No costs are associated with this type of presentation; however, your client must be the primary presenter, and they are responsible for submitting the proposal. If the session is accepted, your client's primary presenter will be informed, and the primary presenter who is a HIUG member will receive a complimentary registration (vendor co-presenters must be a sponsor or exhibitor at Interact 2018 plus register for the conference).

Purchased Vendor Presentation

  • Purchase full-hour vendor presentations (All vendor presenters must either purchase a registration or use one of those included with your main sponsorship as vendor sessions do not include a complimentary registration for any of your presenters. Platinum sponsorships include a Community sponsorship. This includes a vendor session within the Community plus a 5 minute welcome during the Community Opening Session on Monday. Gold Sponsors receive a complimentary vendor presentation in the Community of their choice with their sponsorship. Silver and Bronze may purchase vendor sessions (see prospectus for details).

You will find pricing options for vendor presentations in the Prospectus Brochure.

Note: All vendor presenters must either purchase a registration or use one of those included with your company's main sponsorship.

Recommendations for Vendor Presentations -

  • Historically, attendance at vendor sessions has been much higher the earlier vendor sessions are submitted and visible to attendees on the conference website. Interact 2018 will be mixing vendor sessions in with all other sessions on Monday and Tuesday. As such it is imperative that ALL vendor session submissions be submitted prior to the agenda being published to ensure that your session can be selected as attendees prepare their personal conference agendas. 
  • Vendors should avoid including any sales type references of any type (e.g. "our product compares well with brand x and in fact we can offer all of you a great discount because you came to this session today").
  • Some vendors choose to use their vendor session to showcase one or more of their client success stories by having their HIUG Member client(s) conduct the presentation. In this case, be sure to advise your client that their registration is not complimentary as the session is still defined as a vendor session.
  • If a client is submitting a session proposal that includes your company as a co-presenter, be sure to have your client keep you informed as sessions are selected and scheduled as these notices are sent to the primary presenter only.
Vendor Registrations

IMPORTANT - The Exhibitor Registration type is the default registration type included with your sponsorship. It includes meals, access to the Exhibit Hall, and access to sessions, ONLY. Sponsors with attendees that plan to also participate in any of the Sunday Activities (including golf), or the Tuesday Closing Event, may purchase an "Exhibitor Plus" Add-On for as many of their attendees as they wish. The cost for each "Exhibitor Plus" add-on is $225. It can be purchased at the time you purchase your corporate sponsorship.

Additional Exhibitor registrations purchased will be charged at the current registration rate, as per the information provided below.

Note: All Complimentary Exhibitor Registrations, and all Exhibitor Paid Registrations require attendee to stay at the host hotel, otherwise an additional fee applies. See Registration Rates Information online for full details.

All vendors will be sent a special vendor code which will allow you to register your team for the conference. This code will be used for all your Exhibitor registrations and is exclusive to your company. It will include the complimentary registrations that come with your Sponsorship, as well as any additional Exhibitor Registrations purchased.
