This year, we have made a few changes to the exhibit hall layout. All exhibitors will be set up in one large ballroom, rather than splitting between two separate spaces as we have done in the past.

Exhibitors can register for a 8 x 10 booth or a 6 ft table top display. The table tops will take the place of the booths around the perimeter of the room. The new floor plan is available to view.

Registration for a booth includes up to two representatives. Registration for a table includes one representative. Registration for additional personnel is available in the online registration form or by contacting ATA directly. As of October 4th, exhibitor registration is closed. We have filled all booths and tables. If you have questions or wish to be added to a wait list, please contact Shari at showalter@alaskatel.org.


Alaska Telecom Association (ATA) is your advocacy organization supporting telecommunications in Alaska.  ATA events are a great forum to talk about current issues and successes within the telecom industry.
