Exhibitor Information

Participants who attend our events have come not only to learn new skills and network with colleagues, they have also come to expect the opportunity to shop and obtain information from those businesses and organizations that serve children and families.  This arrangement benefits everyone.  One of our goals is to help make those mutually beneficial opportunities happen.

Current Promotional Opportunities

We encourage you to take full advantage of the available opportunities to showcase your organization.  The exhibitor opportunities vary in options, price, and the event(s) at which they are available.  Select as many as you would like that fit well with your goals then download and complete the appropriate documents. Feel free to email us with any questions.  Participants in any of these opportunities will be acknowledged in one or more of the following locations:  Institute materials, on the PLA-INC. website, or through supporting organizations' websites.  Below this list you will find an explanation for each opportunity.

We had a wonderful time on Saturday!  Thank you all for coming! 

And if you weren't there, we missed you!

Exhibitor Tables

Exhibitor table sizes vary by event (typically 6’ x 3’ or 8' x 3').  Exhibitors pay a non-refundable fee per table/space.  Each exhibitor table/space includes 2 chairs (upon request).  You provide the table coverings.  Access to electrical outlets is limited and must be reserved in advance.  Reservations are accepted on a first come, first served basis.  Beverages and light breakfast are included with your registration.  Lunch may be reserved for a nominal charge.

Exhibitor’s products must be family- or child care-related.  A door prize for each table/space reserved is expected.  Exhibitors may solicit sales leads via interaction with individual participants, e.g., drawing for free product/service, catalog mailing.

Resource or Promotional Insert

You may wish to send materials such as fliers or brochures to be included in the folders.  As with on-site exhibitors, contact information may be printed in the Institute program.  Fees for inserts vary; details are included with your exhibitor packet above.
