2019 NITSL WORKSHOP VENDOR PARTICIPATION AND SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES

Introduction:

Nuclear Information Technology Strategic Leadership (NITSL) is a not for profit corporation that was formed to coordinate a consistent direction in industry wide initiatives and serve as an interface for communications with regulators and industry groups.

NITSL is a topical area within the Institute of Nuclear Power Operations (INPO) and receives their primary governance and oversight through INPO and the Nuclear Strategic Issues Advisory Committee (NSIAC).

The focus areas of the NITSL planned direction support the following four core process initiatives distinct to nuclear power generation:

· Software Quality Assurance (SQA)

· Cyber Security for Nuclear Power     Reactors

· Digital Control Systems

· Infrastructure and Applications

The NITSL Executive Committee (EC) supports a Standing Committee for each of these core initiatives. Each Standing Committee has a Chairperson and an EC Sponsor. The Standing Committees are expected to stay abreast of emergent regulations and best practices with the goal of providing useful products and a forum for industry wide feedback for the NITSL membership. 

NITSL conducts one educational workshop per year.

Vendor Relationships:

The NITSL committees and members recognize the value that vendors provide concerning products, services and views of interest to our organization. It is for this reason that we are interested in your participation. The format of our vendor night allows us to offer to our members an evening of informal displays and discussions with selected vendors.

Vendor Participation:

NITSL vendors are invited to participate in an opportunity to present and/or demonstrate your products, services, or views during Vendor Night, which is on Wednesday evening from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM. Set up for the 2019 Conference can begin at 8:00 AM on 7/17/18 in the Birmingham Ballroom

Vendor company’s may partner with other vendors in a booth however each attending vendor company is required to pay a booth fee. Our distinction of separate vendor company’s is by their registered email address during the NITSL conference registration. There will be no exceptions to this policy.

Vendor Night Raffle

In order to encourage maximum attendance and vendor member interaction, we ask each vendor to bring a gift to be raffled off to members that attend Vendor Night. Each vendor will be responsible for a collection point at their booth for names to be drawn. Names will be drawn toward the end of the evening. There will be one prize per person. This is designed to produce more winners by eliminating duplicate winners and keep members around for the entire evening. Members must be present to win. Vendors cannot enter these raffles. If a member wins more than one prize, they can trade their prize or elect to keep what they have and then another name will be picked for the prize that was turned over. There is no limit to the value of the prize. In the past, the average value has been around $150.00, but you are not obligated to spend that much.
