Exhibitor Info

Exhibitor Information

The SLATE convention is the largest education technology convention in Wisconsin. For over 13 years, we have provided a space to showcase, present, analyze, and explain the use of technology in education. Over the course of three days, educators of all backgrounds and expertise levels gather to learn about the newest in education technology, as well as practical tips and tricks to implement in their schools and districts.

Exhibit with us and engage with educators and school leaders who are on the front lines of school technology.

The SLATE Expo Hall sells out quickly every year! Questions? Contact us!
