Exhibitor Info & Forms:
The Florida Literacy Coalition is pleased to announce the 32nd Annual Florida Literacy Conference: Open Books Open Minds, May 4-6, 2016, at the Hilton St. Petersburg Bayfront. We expect approximately 400-500 attendees from adult education, literacy, ESOL and family literacy programs throughout Florida. Of our attendees, approximately 40% are program administrators and 43% are teachers from public and non-profit adult education/literacy programs.
You can promote your company at the Conference through sponsorship, advertisement or an exhibit space.
Exhibiting at the 2016 Conference has been designed with the highest visibility and traffic in mind. As a potential exhibitor, you will be pleased to know that:
The exhibit area will be conveniently located near all general and concurrent session rooms. All refreshment breaks will take place in the exhibit hall area.
The Florida Literacy Coalition will provide a link to each exhibitor's website from www.floridaliteracy.org, which receives an average of approximately 4,200 visitors per week.
All exhibitors will have a listing in the Conference program and attendees will be encouraged to visit exhibitors at the Opening General Session.
Conference sponsors can have their software loaded on computers in the computer lab where, during open times, attendees can demo software on their own.
Exhibitors will be given the opportunity to promote their products through special drawings held during breaks and at the closing general session.
Presentations by exhibitors will be labeled as such in the Conference program. Exhibitors will be limited to one concurrent session. Exhibitors who are also sponsors, however, will be permitted to submit two proposals.
Exhibits will be located in the main foyer along with registration.
