Showcase


SUMMIT SHOWCASE

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 13
5:00 – 7:00 PM
CRAGUN’S EVENT CENTRE, BRAINERD

Businesses and organizations can increase their reach with professional educators while creating a strong network of associates by exhibiting at the Summit Showcase. When you need to talk with school superintendents, administrators, school board members, or teachers, the Showcase is your place to successfully connect. It’s held concurrently with a light dinner on Monday, allowing vendors more interaction time with conference attendees.

  • Register for the full Summit with a booth included, or register as an Exhibitor only.
  • Exhibiting is FREE with full Summit registration. (Check box during registration.)
  • Registration closes October 15 or earlier if all spaces fill.
  • Exhibitor booth numbers are assigned at setup on Monday and are not available prior to the Summit.
