Dear publishers and representatives of higher educational institutions,
Be sure to save the date for our next fall tri-state conference, which will be held on Saturday, November 9, 2013, at University of Southern Maine, Gorham. We look forward to having you exhibit your materials there!
We appreciate your support of not only our association, but also our teachers and participants! With this in mind, this year we are committed to increasing the traffic from our participants to your booths. This year, we are offering refreshment breaks inside the Exhibitor Hall allowing participants time to talk with publishers and representatives of higher educational institutions.
The schedule includes a keynote speaker, concurrent sessions, refreshment breaks, and lunch. A total of seven professional development hours will be given for those who attend. All publishers and representatives of higher educational institutions must purchase their exhibit space online through Acteva, a secure registration and payment management website, with payment in the form of a check or credit card.
Similar to last year, there are several ways you can participate:
- The early bird special for exhibitors is $160 – so be sure to register before August 1. The base cost for attending exhibitors is $175, which includes one six-foot (6’) attended table and lunch for one person. (Acteva Option Exhibitor 1)
- One additional six-foot (6’) table and lunch for one additional person can be purchased for $125. If purchased before August 1, 2012 it is only $110! (Acteva Option Exhibitor 2)
- For a fee of $150, we will insert a flier about your institution or tailored listing of publications you offer along with your contact information and website address in each conference attendee’s packet. (Acetva Option Exhibitor Conference Packet) These customized book compilations and fliers should not exceed five pages. A single copy of customized compilations and fliers should be sent, print-ready, to Karen Boxell at Schoolmarm4@comcast.net.
- You can attend the fall conference in order to learn more about current issues facing ESOL teachers and/or by submitting a Call for Proposal to do a session.
Thanks to all of you who participated in our November 2012 fall conference either by displaying materials, contributing to our raffle, and/or presenting at a workshop. The overall feedback from the 200 participants who attended the conference was very positive.
If you have any questions please contact me, the Publishers’ Liaison for the board of NNETESOL. Thank you again for your interest and support of our association. We look forward to seeing you at our November 9th tri-state conference at USM, Gorham, Maine.
