Please join the Minnesota Association for the Education of Young Children (MnAEYC) and the Minnesota School-Age Care Alliance (MnSACA) by exhibiting at our Annual State Conference, March 9-10, 2018 at the St. Paul RiverCentre. We are excited to offer a premier conference for professionals working with children and youth. It brings together nearly 1,000 leaders from across Minnesota providing care and education in a variety of early childhood and afterschool settings. 

This conference is the foremost place to network with new and existing buyers, unveil new merchandise and services, and showcase your top sellers. The MnAEYC-MnSACA Annual State Conference will offer you the optimal sales opportunity for summer programs, as well as to fill the year-round needs of professionals who work with early childhood and school-age children.

Looking to expand your impact at the conference? We are excited to offer Gold Sponsors an opportunity to showcase their products and/or resources during a break-out session. Share the latest trends, products, or services to your potential customers in a dedicated session. Sign up early to ensure your session is among the choices for participants.

Exhibitors are considered “no show” if a company does not occupy and exhibit in the designated space within one hour of the scheduled opening of the exhibit space at 7am on Friday, March 9, and has not given MnAEYC-MnSACA the required written notice of cancellation. MnAEYC-MnSACA has the right to use “no show” exhibit space in such a manner as it may deem in the exposition’s best interest. Failure to occupy exhibit space does not relieve the Exhibitor from their obligation to pay the full booth rental fee.

In the event MnAEYC-MnSACA should exercise this right, any deposit and fees paid to MnAEYC-MnSACA shall be refunded. MnAEYC-MnSACA has the right to refuse an applicant access to future events.
