Making the most of exhibiting #altc

In our experience, our participants are looking to have conversations, try out new technology and find out more about what you do. As a key event for our community to get together and network, share ideas and catch up, there is strong demand for an informal approach that allows discovery and experimentation.

We are always on hand to help exhibitors formulate the right approach and provide informal advice and guidance on how to maximise your engagement.

If you would like to contribute to the wider conference programme, please make a submission to the Call for Proposals or consider one of the sponsorship opportunities to secure a pitch in a plenary session.
