AKRON—Booth Sales for ITEC 2018 opened in late September and the exhibit hall already is 65 percent sold out.
First in for prime space and a corporate sponsorship was VMI Group, a market leader in tire production machinery. Other industry leaders who have secured space include Cimcorp Automation, Erhardt & Leimer, Mesnac and HG Group. Well-positioned booths, including one 20x20-foot booth, are available. Several 10x20- and 10x10-foot booths also remain.
In addition to exhibit space, sponsorships also are rapidly disappearing as companies work to gain maximum impact with ITEC's international attendees. Both corporate sponsorships and all the technical sponsorships are sold. However, other important branding opportunities remain.
ITEC, to be held Sept. 11-13 ini Akron, is North America's premier tire manufacturing event, combining a large exhibit hall—more 28,000 square feet of space—with a packed conference program that features 40 to 60 technical presentations over the three-day period.
ITEC attracts about 1,600 attendees from around the world every two years. Delegates are decision makers from every aspect of the tire manufacturing industry.
