See you in KC! The GPN Annual Meeting is May 31-June 2, 2023
GPN 2021 Virtual Annual Meeting


We thank each one of our valued sponsors who have helped make the Virtual Annual Meeting possible this year.  We provide opportunities to meet with them during the Sponsors Office Hours that take place on Thursday morning.  Please take a few moments to visit our sponsors, leave a virtual business card, and talk with them about their products and services.  Also check out the Virtual Marketplace where we have gathered the promotional and marketing materials provided by each sponsor for this conference.  


Sponsors Office Hours work the same as the conference breakout sessions.  We have assigned each sponsor to a Zoom breakout room on Thursday morning.  To visit a sponsor, connect into the Zoom Main Conference Room at 9:00 AM and then select the breakout room assigned to the sponsor of your choice.  This gives you the opportunity to meet with the sponsor’s representatives, ask questions, listen to short product briefings, and learn how they are able to help you with your most challenging IT or research projects.  Check the sponsors information blocks below for the day and breakout room assignment for each sponsor.  If you wish, feel free to move from one breakout room to another to meet with another sponsor.


A special opportunity to hear from all of our sponsors takes place at 11:15 AM CDT on Thursday.  We have scheduled Sponsors Lightning Talks during which each company will offer a brief 10-minute presentation on a topic of their choice.


As one of the world’s leading data networks and recognized in Gartner’s 2021 Magic Quadrant, Telia Carrier owns and operates a global fiber backbone connecting 320+ Points of Presence (PoPs) across Europe, North America, Asia and the Middle East.
