Thanks for another successful ITA Vendor Showcase!

The 2019 Vendor Showcase, held September 4-6 in Peoria, was a great event!  Thanks to everyone who attended and exhibited this year. We feel like the extended format was a great success and hope you all thought so too. We would also like to give special thanks to our annual partners and sponsors for helping make this event so successful.

We recently emailed a link to complete a brief survey. We are asking all our members to complete this to get feedback so we can continue to grow this event. Please take a couple of minutes to complete this survey. Visit our website to complete the showcase survey.
