So…you’ve heard about our show and would like to attend.
GREAT! Here’s some information about this year’s show. Click on a title below to read more information.
Basic show information
ITA Showcase 2018 will be held at the Holiday Inn Portland Airport Hotel, on March 7 and 8. Show hours are from 8:00 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Wednesday, and from 8:00 a.m. to noon on Thursday, followed by lunch and final door prize giveaways. Hosted luncheon will be provided on both days. Our vendors are hosting a reception immediately following the first day of the show (from 4:30 to 6 p.m. on Wednesday). Seminars will be held on an hourly basis on both days (seminar schedule will be posted on this site after January 15). We are changing up our golf tourney – this year we will be holding a Top Golf event on Tuesday, March 6.
ADDING THE YAPP APP
One of the easiest ways to have all the show info right in your pocket is to put our app right on your phone. It’s easy to do; the steps are below. On our app you will find: a listing of our exhibitors, a listing of our sponsors, a show agenda including information on all of our seminars, and just before the show we will also provide a listing of everyone – exhibitors and attendees – who will be at our show. We would love for you to check this out!
To reserve a room at the Holiday Inn, please call 1-503-256-5000 before February 10. Be sure to indicate that you are with ITA Showcase. The Holiday in is offering us a reasonable room rate, which includes breakfast vouchers. It is helpful to us if you choose to stay with them. You can reserve online at Holiday Inn Reservations.
To get to the hotel: Take the Killingsworth Street Exit (exit 23-B) off of I-205 (north or south). Then simply stay to the right and follow the Holiday Inn signs to Columbia Blvd. — hotel is less than three miles from the Portland airport. Hotel address is 8439 NE Columbia Blvd., Portland, OR 97220
Showcase 2018 is FREE to representatives from telephone companies, regulatory commissions, government agencies, RUS, PUDs, electric utilities, CLECs, ISPs, CAPs, wireless service providers, interconnects, CATVs, or state telephone associations. The only people who must pay a $100 Registration fee are NON-EXHIBITING VENDORS to the industry. This fee does not apply to those vendors whose products are being displayed by a distributor. Although there is no charge for most show participants, we ask that you click on the Attendee Registration link and fill out the registration form with names, titles, phone numbers and addresses of those attending. This will help us greatly at registration on the days of the show.
Seminars will begin at 8:00 a.m. each day, and are held until 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday and noon. on Thursday. A schedule of this year’s seminars and seminar outlines can be found at This Year’s Seminars after January 15. (A listing of last year’s seminars is still on the site so you can see what kind of workshops we provide.)
Name badges and exhibitor booth maps
If you pre-register, your badges and show programs, including booth map, will be ready for you at the registration desk. We appreciate you pre-registering; it saves a lot of time and confusion on the days of the show. So… thanks!
Door prizes will be given away throughout the show, with a final door prize giveaway held at the closing of our exhibits at noon on Thursday. Our vendors are generous and highly creative when it comes to door prizes; we usually have lots of fun. Don’t forget to sign up when you arrive at the show!
Golf tourney has become a Top Golf event held on Tuesday, March 6. Top Golf is an excellent venue for mixing and mingling with customers and colleagues; lots of fun and even more prizes. We are offering bus transportation to and from the Top Golf facility in Hillsboro; bus will leave the hotel at 2 pm and return at 9 pm. (Be sure to note if you want to use the bus.) Cost for the afternoon of golfing fun is $100; no refunds after February 10.
