The Home Inspectors of Tennessee Association (H.I.T.A.), Is presenting our 2022 Educational EXPO
October 21-22, 2022, at the Chattanoogan Hotel and Convention Center in Chattanooga, TN.
You must be a HITA Affiliate member to be a Sponsor/Vendor.
Check out the venue at: The Chattanoogan Hotel, Curio Collection by Hilton. We are growing every Expo, with our last Expo having 125+ member participants and 20+ Affiliate Vendor Fair participants. We go to great effort to ensure our Vendors get substantial time with our members, so participating in our fair is beneficial for all parties!
If you are not familiar with H.I.T.A., you can follow this link to familiarize yourself with our organization; History of HITA – HITA – Home Inspectors of Tennessee
As it stated in the supplied link, we focus on legislation and education specific with our geographical area and the conditions that exist in the southeast. We are a non-profit working to help educate and support our members, as well as grow our organization to include all Home Inspectors licensed in Tennessee. While we offer free continuing education quarterly to our members, once every 18 months we put together an Educational Expo. We bring all of the members and our much-appreciated affiliate members together for a 2-day event, presenting at least 16 hours of national-level education, as well as hold a Vendor’s Fair so our Affiliate members have the opportunity to meet our members, to explain how their product/service can benefit our inspectors and their clients.
The night before we begin, we will host a Thursday night reception with live music, food, and drink to kick things off. With social networking time also built into both Friday and Saturday, affiliates and members more time than ever for vendor/inspector interaction. If you participated in the “mini-expo” we had at this venue this past November, you will have an idea of the approach we will be making, but on a much grander scale!
This is set up as any other convention vendors booths areas with a 10×10 area,8’ table and 2 chairs. Power is available if needed. Larger booths are available for the vendors that would like to sponsor at a higher than Silver Sponsor level. Click here to see the space we will occupy. An actual booth layout will be available soon. Exhibit halls A-D will house our event.
You must be a HITA Affiliate member to receive that rate.
