News & Updates

Exhibitor Space Request Now Open

If you’re seeking to promote your organization and share your work with or sell items to Conference attendees, this year’s Exhibitor Booth option has some exciting additions. First, Exhibitor booths will be stationed in the Upham Lodge where many key events will be taking place, including the Keynote address, and the panel discussion. Coffee and networking breaks are peppered throughout the Conference schedule and will take place in Upham Lodge. Exhibits will be on display 8am-5pm on Friday, and 8am-3pm on Saturday. Set up time will be available on Thursday. 

Also new this year, Exhibitors are being offered the opportunity to place an ad in the Conference program. Place a 1/4- or 1/2-page ad to promote your organization and the work you do! 

One more addition: if Exhibitor fees are a stretch for your budget, you can reduce your cost by volunteering during the Conference. Volunteer opportunities and specific tasks will be announced closer to the Conference date but we’ll keep you posted if you chose that option!  

Space is extremely limited so, sign up to request space right away.
