The Conference Exhibition is an integral part of NESA conferences and institutes. NESA encourages delegates to visit the exhibit by locating coffee breaks within the exhibition space. Exhibitions are organized at all four NESA events:


General Interest Workshops Presented by NESA "Affiliates": As a benefit of NESA "affiliate" status, Affiliate Exhibitors are invited to present one-hour General Interest Workshops at the FLC and SEC. A limited number of workshops is available (based on scheduling and space constraints) on a 'first-come, first-served' basis. More information will be emailed and posted soon. In the meantime, for any questions, please contact Laura Canellopoulou:

Exhibitor Registration Fees: Fees include printed conference program (FLC & SEC only), nametag, conference gift (FLC), bag/portfolio (SEC), entry to social events, coffee breaks and lunch for two or three days (depending on the schedule).

The exhibitor fee structure is streamlined so that registration and table fees are combined. Exhibitor registration fees for 2016-2017 are as follows:

Fall Leadership Conference:
1 Affiliate Exhibitor registration + 1 exhibit table*: $1,210
1 Non-affiliate Exhibitor registration + 1 exhibit table: $2,080
Additional exhibitor: $390

Spring Educators Conference:
1 Affiliate Exhibitor registration + 1 exhibit table*: $1,210
1 Non-affiliate Exhibitor registration + 1 exhibit table: $2,080
Additional exhibitor: $305

Fall Training Institute / Winter Training Institute:
1 Affiliate Exhibitor registration + 1 exhibit table*: $610
1 Non-affiliate Exhibitor registration + 1 exhibit table: $695

*NOTE: If there is adequate space, NESA may offer member/affiliate exhibitors one additional table free of charge, upon advance request. (If NESA is able to offer a free table, there will be a check-box on the registration form).

Shipping Materials to Event Site: To courier materials to the conference/institute site, please go to that event's homepage and click the "Exhibitors" tab for the postal address and other relevant instructions.

Set-up: Exhibitors may set-up the day before the conference or institute. Details (exact time, etc) will be emailed to exhibitors and posted in that event's section on this website. If you do not need a lot of set-up time, you may also set up the first morning of the conference or institute.

Size of exhibit tables: Usually, tables are approximately 1.80m long x 80cm wide. They are covered with tablecloths and skirts.

Exhibit Space: NESA exhibitions are usually located in the foyer of the ballroom where plenary sessions are held (for the two conferences); coffee breaks are usually located within the exhibition. At the two institutes, held on member school campuses, the exhibit is held in a central location, with the coffee breaks in this area or nearby. In recent years, the Fall Leadership Conference exhibition has grown considerably, resulting in the exhibition reaching capacity and in NESA having to close exhibitor registration. We encourage early registration to avoid disappointment!

Posters/Banners: NESA does not provide signs or banners with exhibitor names. Attaching posters to walls is prohibited. If you need floor space for a large, wide display/banner to be placed next to your exhibit table, please reserve an additional table and note you need this space but no table in the "Comments" box on the registration form; a 1.80 meter (approx.) space will be left for the wide display/banner. Depending on the exhibition space, there is usually not enough room between individual exhibits for stand-up (floor) display banners -- we encourage you to bring table-top display banners.

Electrical Outlets/Extension Cords: Electrical lines and extension cords can be provided by the hotel or school, upon request. Exhibitors should bring adapter plugs for computers or for other equipment.

Packing Up: Officially, the exhibit closes when the conference or institute adjourns. Be sure to bring masking/packing tape to close boxes. If you plan to donate extra samples to our host school, please pack and clearly mark those boxes. Inform the NESA Staff so they may alert the school to arrange pick-up.

Please contact Laura Canellopoulou at NESA for any questions!
