FAQ

We did not receive an invitation. How can my company get an invitation to IBTUF?

Contact your primary contact at Verizon and request them to sponsor your company’s attendance at IBTUF. The Verizon sponsor will need to contact the Verizon Forum committee to determine if your company will receive an invitation. The Forum committee will then send us an email to send an invitation if approved.

If my company attended or exhibited last year will we automatically get an invitation each year?

No, Verizon each year selects the vendors, turnkey system providers and other attendees to attend the IBTUF forum. Since Verizon’s business focus may change from year to year no company is insured they will receive an invite for the next IBTUF forum until the forum committee has made their final selections.

What is the process to present at IBTUF?

Presentation outlines must be submitted to forum committee by October 15th. The Verizon Forum committee selects those they deem interesting to the group and will need a final presentation for review by December 1st. Final selection of presentations to be presented at IBTUF is by the forum committee.

How are presenters or presentations selected?

The IBTUF Forum Committee has final selection of which presentations are given.

At this time we do not expect to add additional booth space.

Can I get an invitation to attend only without exhibiting?

Do we need to man our booth all day?

The exhibit floor is open all day, see hours on the agenda. You can man you exhibit booth as you desire. Not everyone is interested in the presentations so these attendees visit the booths even during session hours. The main or busiest time of course is during any breaks, meals or receptions.
