Interop TechFair

Tuesday, May 21 | 5:00 PM – 8:00 PM

Network with IT decision makers looking to discover technology solutions outside of their current vendor ecosystem at Interop’s TechFair: a pop-up marketplace taking place in the middle of the IT community’s legendary annual conference!

For IT decision makers, Interop’s TechFair is a three-hour evening event dedicated to researching and discovering new enterprise technology companies, products, and solutions. 

For IT vendors, it’s an opportunity to connect with IT decision makers who are primed to meet new solution providers. Interop attendees are vested in learning the latest and greatest on how to run a modern IT organization – and all the technology options available – in an unbiased setting.

The Interop TechFair brings all of this together for a fun night of new connections and new solutions in a casual environment featuring food, drink, and music.

Why You Have to Be at Interop TechFair

Be a part of the year’s most comprehensive, vendor-neutral exhibition of IT solutions to get face time with influential IT professionals actively seeking new products and services.

  • Level playing field: Participation fee is $3,900. 

    Whether you’re a start-up or an emerging market leader or you represent a product group at one of the giant tech vendor companies, we have no barriers for you to exhibit at our TechFair. All you have to do is show up and be ready to meet and engage with IT attendees.


  • Access to Interop attendees: As an independent conference, attendees come with the specific goal of uncovering new strategies and solutions outside of their current IT ecosystems and platforms. (By the way, our passes are 100% paid, so you’ll be meeting IT professionals who have a vested interest in their education.)

  • Best of Interop: You’ll be eligible to submit your product or service for the prestigious Best of Interop awards. 

    We don’t need to tell you the benefits of winning a best-of-show award … well, maybe just a few: marketing, PR, credibility, and team recognition at the event and beyond!


The Interop TechFair will bring the industry together like never before. Join us for this exciting event and show the IT community your support in making IT better.

"[Interop] ... it's the only vendor-neutral conference I attend ... the sessions and tracks allow me to break free from constantly focusing on how to solve problems using single-vendor solutions ... lets me focus on the business problem, regardless of the underlying vendor hardware and software.” 
— Lead Network Architect, West Gate Networks
