KAGE Annual Conference 2018 Exhibitor Information

MARK YOUR CALENDARS to exhibit at the KAGE 38th Annual Conference on February 26 – 27, 2018 in  Lexington. 

Please join us as we celebrate 38 years of advocacy and service for Kentucky’s gifted children and youth.  The KAGE Conference will feature two days of presentations from national and state experts on topics and exhibits of interest to educators and parents of gifted children.

The Kentucky Association for Gifted Education’s 38th Annual Conference will be held February 26 – 27, 2018 at the Marriott Griffin Gate Resort in Lexington, Kentucky.  Our participants include teachers, gifted and talented resource teachers and coordinators, administrators, parents, and other interested individuals.  They always look forward to visiting the booths of our exhibitors to see what materials and services are available for anyone interested in appropriate educational opportunities for high-ability students.

We are very pleased Lisa Van Gemert, from GiftedGuru.com as a keynote speaker on Tuesday, and a session presenter on Tuesday and Wednesday.  Ms. Van Gemert is well-known in the gifted community for her very informative and entertaining presentations and as a consultant to American Mensa.  We are also pleased to have Dr. Paula Olszewski-Kubilius, director of the Center for Talent Development at Northwestern University and a professor in the School of Education and Social Policy. 

As an exhibitor you will have the opportunity to offer your products or services to educators and parents of high ability students. Your company will be recognized in the conference program, and time will be allotted for conference participants to visit exhibit displays.

The fee to exhibit is $275 for the two days.  It includes one 6’ skirted table and one chair.  Each additional table is $60.  An electrical outlet is available upon request for $75.  You will be able to assemble your exhibit the night before, if you wish.  Security for the evenings of February 26 and 27 is provided.  However, we assume no responsibility for the security of your exhibit area or materials.
