So…you’ve heard about our show and would like to attend.
SO SORRY TO SAY THIS, BUT DUE TO COVID-19 ITA Showcase will not be held in 2021. Please know that we will be back! If there is any way we can do you a service in this incredibly weird time, please let us know. See you in 2022!
Basic show information
ITA Showcase 2021 will be held at the Holiday Inn Portland Airport Hotel, on March 3 and 4. 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). As last year’s TopGolf experience was a resounding success, this year we are hoping to again be hosting a TopGolf event on Tuesday, March 2.
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. Or you can call 503-914-5245 or 1-800-HOLIDAY and mention block code ITA.
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
ITA Showcase Northwest 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. 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 hourly until 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday and 12 noon on Thursday. After January 15, a schedule of this year’s seminars and seminar outlines can be found at “This Year’s Seminars”. (Until then we post last year’s seminars so you can have an idea of the type of information we discuss.)
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!
Our annual TopGolf event will be held on Tuesday, March 2, from 6 to 9 pm. TopGolf Hillsboro (5505 NW Huffman Street, Hillsboro, OR 97124) is an excellent venue for mixing and mingling with customers and colleagues; lots of fun and even more prizes. Cost for the afternoon of golfing fun is $100; no refunds after February 10.
