Call to Vendors and Businesses
Now that registration for the 2017 Professional Development Conference in Orlando is underway, it is time for us to extend the invitation to those wishing to reach our audience as a business. At each conference, vendors who have a product or service that would be of interest to braille transcribers and teachers of the visually impaired have a few opportunities to showcase themselves.
Registration for vendors is now available for those wishing to have a table in our Exhibit Hall, sponsor a portion of the conference, or advertise in our conference program. If you are a business representative wanting to position your brand so that it reaches our conference attendees, we invite you to explore the options we’ve made available.
- By setting up a table in our Exhibit Hall, a representative from your company will have an opportunity for face-to-face contact with conference attendees. Past vendors have taken advantage of placing a display in the Exhibit Hall as a way to introduce new products, discuss existing products, or field questions and feedback directly from end users. (*Note: While the Exhibit Hall is open for extended times, workshops are well attended and there is some down time for exhibitors while workshops are in session.)
- Businesses wishing to tell our attendees about a product or service without needing a table can purchase a spot in our conference program. Different sizes are available for varying price points, so regardless of your resources, there is likely an option that will suit your needs.
- As you may have guessed, putting on a three-day conference is a costly endeavour for a non-profit organization! We invite your business or organization to assist NBA with a portion of the conference by choosing a sponsorship level most appropriate for your needs. To show our gratitude, we will happily recognize your involvement as a sponsor of this year’s conference in various ways.
For a more detailed description of each of these options, you can visit the Professional Development Conference page of our website and download a description of the sponsorships. Additionally, you can use the link on that page to register as a vendor for one of the options described above.
As always, if you have questions or wish to be in touch with us directly, feel free to contact us here in the office.
