EXHIBITING & SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES

HILT 2014 will provide the only exhibits for the joint SPLASH/HILT conferences this year. This includes two days of exhibits and vendor presentations on their products and services during the main sessions on October 20-21, 2014. More than 600 attendees participated in last year’s SPLASH. HILT 2014 will feature:

The conference promises to draw our usual rich mix of practitioners, program managers, researchers, vendors, academics, and Government representatives, offering opportunities for technical exchanges and business contacts.

HILT 2014 conference attendees' interests include software-engineering technologies, safety-critical and high-security systems, distributed computing, real-time processing, and open systems and standards. Our typical attendee is a senior engineer who influences software purchasing decisions in a high maturity organization.

HILT 2014 offers an excellent opportunity for exhibitors and sponsors to meet new prospects as well as existing customers/users, and to gain name recognition through the event's publicity offerings. There are a variety of sponsorship and exhibiting levels, each with a corresponding set of benefits for promoting your company to a pre-qualified set of attendees with a likely interest in your products.

COST EFFECTIVE EXHIBITING: Each exhibit space rental comes with one draped 6-foot table, two chairs, and electrical access. (There are no extra “decorating charges”.) Single tabletop booths, which are the only space option we offer, minimize your shipping expenses and reduce your setup and teardown effort. As is customary at SIGAda-sponsored conferences, the exhibition will be one and a half days in duration. It will open on the afternoon of the first day of the conference, and we plan to have all breaks located in the exhibition area. This schedule offers ample time for attendees to visit all exhibitors and for you to make the contacts you need.

SPONSORSHIPS: The conference offers sponsorships at multiple levels, with a range of publicity benefits that increase at each level as shown in the following table.
