Sponsor Showcase

This intensive two-day learning event provides plenty of informal networking among its participants and sponsors. ILI's Sponsor Showcase provides further opportunity for attendees to network and review global information products, services and resources available now. The conference is structured so that breaks, lunches and receptions give sponsors prime time to talk with attendees and establish their information needs. The tabletop format for this Showcase exhibition area offers opportunities for quick demos and informal conversations and the Showcase remains open throughout the event.
