Giant iTab

Featured Opportunity

The Giant iTab is essentially a giant tablet that conference attendees use as a super-sized version of their smartphones. This giant tablet runs Apple’s iOS mobile operating system, so all content is displayed in a familiar way. The iTab is located in the registration area at NTCA’s largest events, providing optimal visibility for your digital messages while attendees peruse the NTCA Events App for conference details, session information and much more
