Exhibit at JETC

Given the reality that the current environment our nation faces as we work to contain the spread of COVID-19 is likely to continue through spring, and with restrictions on large gatherings in Washington, D.C. presently in effect until July, SAME has made the decision not to hold the 2020 JETC from May 27-29 as originally planned. We feel this decision is necessary now to allow for our attendees, sponsors, exhibitors, and vendors to plan and adjust accordingly. Plans are underway to deliver the elements that participants value in both different and new ways and at other times. More information will be available in the coming weeks.

The work that SAME members, partners, and stakeholders do is vital to national security, and building relationships and trust through their interactions in the Society has been a critical part of how they do it for 100 years. While right now the focus must be on containing the spread of coronavirus, we look forward to being able to come back together when the time is right, celebrate our Centennial with those who have built SAME's legacy of service, and kick off our second century of impact to our nation, and our profession.

 

WILL MY BOOTH/SPONSORSHIP BE REFUNDED?

SAME sincerely appreciates your company’s support of the Society as an exhibitor and/or sponsor.  We know that the business landscape has changed and right now, we can offer the following options to you.  Let us know what works best for your company!

1.    Exhibitors: Wait to determine if there is a virtual exhibit hall component of JETC and if it matches with your company’s objectives.  Apply your booth fee toward this new JETC opportunity, or if it does not appeal to you when they are offered, select another option that follows.
2.    Sponsors: Wait to determine if alternate JETC offerings match with your company’s objectives.  Apply your sponsorship funds toward a new opportunity, or if none appeal to you when they are offered, select another option that follows.
3.    Apply JETC booth/sponsorship fees towards an SBC booth/sponsorship (SBC is scheduled for November 4-6 in Dallas, Texas).  The booth space selection lottery and sponsorship sales will be held in April.
4.    Advertise in TME magazine or via one of our digital methods (Real TiME newsletter, SAME website, etc.)
5.    Donate funds to the Society (this helps us keep operating at a high level under a substantial loss of revenue due to event cancellations).
6.    Donate funds to the SAME Foundation (helps underwrite programs like the Leader Development Program, camps, etc.).
7.    Obtain a full refund now.

Please email exhibit@same.org or call Kelly Dawson at 703-549-3800 Ext 111 with your refund choice selection or if you have any other questions.
