MnSCU 2016 IT Conference: Charting the Future, Partnering for Students

Minnesota State leadership, the IT Conference 2017 Planning team, presenters and attendees alike, all recognize the role the vendors have played in the successful delivery of the IT Conferences, for the past several years! Vendors play a vital role in enhancing the conference by providing the latest and greatest information from innovative and emerging technologies to best practices.

This conference brings together campus IT staff from across the system to share best practices and discuss ways to leverage IT resources, along with other scarce campus resources, to deliver high quality educational services to students, faculty, staff, communities and businesses.

Booth Registration: The Vendor Exhibition is an interactive session between conference participants and vendors. Vendors participate in the active sessions by purchasing a booth for demonstration of various technologies.  All vendors in attendance MUST have a booth.
