RI Science Teachers Association (a 501c3) is planning our 2017 conference and we would like to provide our attendees an opportunity to see great resources from commercial vendors. Our conference is growing every year and our 2017 keynote speaker, NGSS writer Brian Reiser, will likely attract a number of new attendees!
With a $200 donation, each vendor will be provided with a table, and food/refreshments for their representative. We will also include an ad section in our program where vendors can include their contact information to attendees.
If you would like additional exposure to attendees and RISTA members, consider having your company become a RISTA sponsor. Sponsorships are available to companies for $900. This donation level provides the company with a full page ad in our conference program as well as a link on our webpage for one year. Sponsors are also provided with 2 tables at the conference.
The tables for all commercial participants will be located in the the foyer of New England Tech where attendees will pass between sessions. We will also use 'game encouragement' for participants to interact with vendors. For this, we will be looking for prizes (products or gift cards) from vendors who are interested in taking part.
