Innovative One-Day Events Exhibitor Contract and Registration

2019-2020 ACSI Innovative One-Day Events Exhibitor Contract and Registration


Innovative One-Day Events are a new offering from ACSI.  The Events are one-day conferences designed to meet the needs of schools and programs that may not be able to travel a distance to a PD Forum or are looking for a smaller conference setting.  Teachers and school leaders will be challenged through a keynote session and breakout sessions on innovative educational topics. 

Exhibitor Terms and Conditions:

Booth Assignment: ACSI assigns exhibit spaces on a first-come, first-served basis after receipt of exhibitor application and accompanying payment and acceptance of the application by ACSI.  ACSI reserves the right to refuse any exhibitor application for any reason.
