Can I sell products at this conference? 

YES! And more importantly, teachers mentioned that they WANT exhibitors to sell at the convention. The state of Kansas requires that tax be collected on all sales based on the tax rate at the point of delivery. Schools are exempt from tax, however the instrument of payment, by law, must be from the school (such as a Purchase Order or district purchasing card), not a personal form of payment from the teacher.
The website might be helpful to you.

Will attendees have ample time to spend at the exhibitor booths? 

YES! As the number of our exhibitors grows, the conference attendees develop a greater interest in visiting the vendors. We are gearing the booth hours to maximize your exposure time.

Are there other options for exposure of my company at KAEA besides a booth?

Yes! There are many ways to reach KAEA members besides a booth at the conference! Whether you are wanting to supplement your booth space or if you cannot make it to the conference for a booth:

• Submit a conference proposal for a workshop! The proposal form is available on the conference website or can be emailed to you.

• Send catalogs or other brochures to be placed on a table at the conference for attendees to pick up

• Purchase advertising space in the conference brochure.

• Sponsor a meal (Your company will be announced as the sponsor of the meal and listed in the conference program and website)

• Donate items for door prizes - If you would like to donate products or gift certificates to be used as door prizes, please include a business card or letterhead with address and contact person’s name on the outside and inside of the package. We want to make sure the lucky members that receive the prize recognize your company’s contribution to the conference.
