We are anticipating 500+ adult teachers, administrators and volunteers from around the state to attend this years virtual professional development event. Another exciting, fun, and information-packed conference is being planned and exhibitors are a big part of making the ACE Conference a success. Exhibitors add a different layer of opportunity for conference attendees to share and learn new ideas and practices in adult education.

The deadline for submitting your Exhibitor Application is September 18th. Exhibits will open Monday, October 5th through Wednesday, October 7th. Virtual booths this year will provide you the opportunity to have as many representatives as you’d like active in the conference, a dedicated landing page with resources and contact information, and direct face time with attendees that visit your booth during the exhibit hall hours.
