We ask the exhibitor to keep in mind that this is a technical show and fun would be to see more being promoting and giving technical supplements instead of sweets and foods. Also, sweepstakes and games can be rolled out. We all want the show live and fun. At the same time, we wish that exhibitors take into account each other and set noise and show professionalism in communication with other exhibitors. Refreshment that separates trash such as pops or objects that make it leak down would be good to avoid even boring when, for example, pop has spread throughout the house. It is not allowed to have alcoholic beverages in the booths.

Send us information if you're going to offer something fun and we'll show it on the web when it's nearer ( This email address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it. ) It should be noted that the show is open both Friday and Saturday and is obliged to stay open for both days.

Performers need to meet themselves with everything in the booths, such as chairs, tables, markings and other assigned floor space. Access to electricity and wireless networks is included. You can rent a table and other parties, such as Exhibition Systems , Labeling , RECON and Harpa. There are also numerous print centers that print booklets and other materials in the booths.

Why Become ansponsor?

A great opportunity to introduce your company, products and services to administrators, technicians, and IT professionals, students in computer science and the public. This applies to all companies that are directly or indirectly dependent on information technology and independent of market areas because the purpose is to show the ICT sector in Iceland.

Particular attention is given to the fact that exhibitions will be something interesting for the public on Saturday and the exhibitors will oblige themselves to have a full presence on Friday and Saturday during the UTmess.

Your benefit:

  • Tickets at the UTmessur conference
  • Stronger connection with the relatives of UTmess
  • Opportunity to meet friends and acquaintances and promote networking
  • Good presentation of your company and ideology
  • Participate in an event that aims to show Icelanders the degree of progress in the ICT sector
  • Opportunity to help young people choose ICT as a future job - even your company as a future workplace!

UTmessan consists of a conference on the one hand and a showroom on the other. On Friday there is a conference and show day for a conference trip and will cost you on that day. The exhibition area is open to the public on Saturday. All major computer and technology companies in the country display the latest technology and tools along with software and more related technology. One of the largest and most beautiful shows in Iceland.

We are looking forward to you with participation in the UTmail, both in the showroom and in a different way, to make the UTmail even more cool and more interesting to the public, such as games or other things that attract people. The companies that are in the UT show showcase are at the forefront of the computer sector, regardless of whether or not Iceland is their market. Everyone has a common interest in encouraging most people to go to computer-based learning, and so many companies are there to show that working in the computer sector is very diverse.
