In an effort to provide a convenient and affordable option for our suppliers to host such an event that wouldn’t take them offsite from our remote resort location, we are offering space in the Rosen Shingle Creek! We have space available on Wednesday night following the Welcome Reception and Friday night following the closing general session. The cost to rent the space is incredibly low compared to offsite options and is convenient for our members to get to, hopefully resulting in maximum attendance! We are excited about this year’s conference and we hope you are too! We always value our members’ feedback and are trying to master the art of constant improvement. We can promise you that each year we will keep the elements that work, implement new processes and tweak existing ones to the best of our ability. Although the National Education Conference & Expo is a large event we continue to strive to maintain its intimate and personalized feel while providing you with new knowledge, and facilitating cherished connections!
