Sponsorship Opportunities

The Texas Education Technology Leaders (TETL) meets face-to-face three times a year. Vendors are encouraged to be a part of the dialogue with our Texas CTOs and Ed Tech Leaders. There are several opportunities during the year to be involved with our organization.

We host two local, one-day meetings in the fall and spring. We always have more companies that want to sponsor than we have space to accommodate in our local meetings, so we suggest signing up early! Unfortunately, we only have room for selected sponsors to attend our events. If your company is not selected for an event, we will give your request preference for the next event. Because of the high demand, we may still not be able to accommodate everyone. We hope you understand. Please also note that we cannot allow vendors to “partner” as an exhibitor. Each vendor must complete the contract and exhibit independently of each other.

The call for participation for the Fall Summit will go out in early August. The call for participation for Spring Summit usually goes out in early December. The call for participation for the Summer Conference usually goes out in early March. The average attendance at these local meetings is about 150-200 participants. Average attendance at the Summer Conference is about 500-550. Sponsorships are selected on a first come, first served basis. Watch for emails from Mel Forehand, our events manager, to notify you when the call for participation opens!


NEW! TETL is now welcoming sponsorships for our monthly "Lunch & Learn" membership webinar series! Email Executive Director Dianne Borreson exdir@tetl.org for more information on this unique opportunity.


We also welcome your participation in an important new initiative for TETL—a sponsor advisory committee designed to identify ways in which we can build out and strengthen our partnerships. Please keep an eye out for information on joining this new feedback forum coming soon! If you have any questions or would like to discuss opportunities for partnering with TETL, please feel free to get in touch with Executive Director Dianne Borreson at exdir@tetl.org. Thank you very much for your support!

Become a TETL Sponsor

If you have questions about TETL sponsorships or would like to be a sponsor for an upcoming event, please email Mel Forehand at mforehand@logistex.net for more information!

 

Please note: In order to ensure the most value for our sponsors, we require all vendors to register to attend events if they are not an official sponsor for said event. In addition, if your organization works closely with a vendor partner, both organizations will be required to be official sponsors in order to attend the event. The number of available sponsorships at each level, for each event, will be determined by the capacity at the selected venue and, depending on the venue capacity, TETL may also limit the number of additional paid vendor registrations beyond the two complimentary that are provided. This will allow us to both manage physical space limitations and maintain a proportionate balance of attendees and vendor sponsors, while providing the greatest engagement with our membership and value to our sponsor partners.

Exhibitor/Sponsorship Cancellations

The Exhibitor may cancel the agreement in writing and agree to the partial refund schedule (61-90 days before the event 75%, 45-60 days before the event 50%, under 45 days no refund). In the event the program must cancel or format or convert to a full virtual event, sponsor will be promptly notified with the option to receive either credit toward a future event or a refund.

Consent to Use of Photographic Images 

Registration and attendance at, or participation in, TETL meetings and other activities constitutes an agreement by the registrant to TETL's use and distribution (now and in the future) of the registration or attendee's images or voice in photographs, videotapes, electronic reproductions, and audio tapes of such events and activities. unless you inform TETL that you object, permission is assumed.
