Exhibit at the WECA Conference

Do you want to help us provide another dynamic WECA conference? Consider exhibiting at our annual conference which brings in more than 575 early childhood education professionals. Our ultimate goal is to create opportunities for early childhood professionals to network, improve skills, gain knowledge, and be recognized for their valuable work with children and families in Wisconsin.

Exhibits will be located in the Oakton Ballroom. We expect good traffic in this location as both breakfast and snacks for attendees will be served in the same room. The exhibit room is also next door to the where all the keynotes, and lunches will occur. There will also be an exhibitor activity designed to encourage attendees to stop at exhibits.

NEW THIS YEAR: Door Prize donation includes FREE PROMOTION!
This year we are asking all exhibitors to provide a door prize to be awarded during the conference. If you plan ahead and let us know what door prize you can donate, we will provide free promotion in WECA’s conference materials. This will include being listed as a “Gem of a Friend” sponsor on our website now, at the conference on sponsor signs, and in our conference program. Additionally, your door prize will be awarded at a public event, like a keynote or lunch. Your company or association’s name will be announced, and booth location acknowledged.
We hope you will take advantage of this opportunity, even if you don’t have items that fit into the traditional door prize categories. Consider what you could give to bring your group more attention – free memberships or trainings – resource books – swag from your association -– gift baskets with treats for the attendees – or gift cards or cash! Be creative! No need to send the door prize now; bring it to the conference.

Planning for your exhibit:

  • You can bring materials to display and demonstrate that fit the themes of the conference. Think of some hands-on ways that our attendees can explore your materials.
  • You can bring materials to sell. Providers love to be able to purchase items directly from you and start using them right away in their classrooms.
  • Bring resources like activity plans or classroom inventories that you could share with participants. Freebies and take-away items always bring attendees to your booth. Make yours the booth that they must go to for an essential resource!
  • Bring items for the adults attending the conference. Not everything has to be early education or child specific. This is often a time where providers escape from their daily routine and enjoy treating themselves to something special.
  • Donate a door prize. It’s a great way to market your company or organization to providers and be seen as a partner in their learning.
