Illinois Science and Math
Expanding Inspiring Motivating
Sponsored by the Illinois Science Teachers Association
and the Illinois Association of Teachers of Mathematics
October 18, 2018
Peoria Civic Center
The two largest associations representing science and math educators across Illinois are again combing resources to organize a dynamic conference to promote quality instruction within and across disciplines.
We invite science, math and general education vendors and supporters to work with us to share innovative professional development, instructional materials and supplies and related opportunities aimed at excellence in teaching designed to Expand Opportunities that Inspire All Students so they become Motivated Learners.
Exhibit setup is 2:00 to 8:00 pm, Thursday, October 17th and 7:00 am - 10:00 am on Friday.
Exhibits will be open on Friday from 10:30 am until 5:30 pm.
Please Note: At the request of many exhibitors we have decided to only open the exhibit hall on Friday. Traffic was limited on Saturday, so it did not seem to be a good use of your resources.
Commercial and Non-Commercial Exhibit fees include:
2 representative registrations including Friday continental breakfast and luncheon
An ISTA non-voting membership
For each 10’ booth we include: 1-6’ table, 2 chairs, wi-fi, draping, waste basket and signage
Free parking if staying at the conference hotel
