The Illinois Area 5 Regional Offices of Education would like to invite you to participate in our Midwest New Directions Education Conference as an exhibitor on June 9 - 10, 2020. We are anticipating 300 educators at our conference. Our conference philosophy is simple: provide the best presenters for the most current and effective educational experience. For our themes this year, we will highlight Technology on Tuesday and Teacher Wellness on Wednesday. Scheduled featured keynote speakers include Brian Matera, Jason Kotecki, Eric Curts, Julie Smith, and Adam Moreno. You can read their bios here.
Starting in 2019, we moved our venue to the Regency Center in O’Fallon, IL. The vendors set up in the lobby which meant that people had to walk through your space to get from one side of the center to the other. The increase in traffic was tremendous! We also scheduled a dedicated lunch/vendor time with a BINGO game in which attendees could register for a free Chromebook if they visited all the vendor booths. Feedback from last year’s vendors was overwhelmingly positive (the food is also incredible!). We are planning the same for 2020.
This year, we are looking for 1 or 2 Gold Level sponsors. In addition to a prime location in the vendor area, your company would also be featured on the website and in marketing materials as a sponsor of the event. I’d like one sponsor for the conference lanyards, and another for one of our Featured Speakers (Eric Curts, Julie Smith, or Adam Moreno - your choice). We are looking forward to seeing you at our conference in June.
