Product Theater

The Product Theater is the perfect venue for exhibiting companies to present a product to a captive audience. Company presenters will have the opportunity to discuss their product and best use practices. This is an ideal opportunity to hold promotional presentations and accommodate a larger audience that can then be directed back to your exhibit booth after the presentation is over for further discussions.

All Product Theater sponsors must comply with the guidelines outlined below and in the Product Theater application& agreement, as well as all other requirements applicable to exhibitors at the ATC.
