The SLATE convention is the largest education technology convention in Wisconsin. For over 10 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.

Theater Showcase Sessions
Looking for a way to showcase your products? Register for SLATE’s Exhibit Hall Session Theater Showcase. The theater, located in a large section of the exhibit hall, provides the opportunity for presentations and demonstrations of the ways in which our students and schools can use technology tools to advance learning and make educators’ jobs simpler so they can focus on teaching and leadership. You can register for one of these sessions as part of your exhibitor registration. Please Note: These are not “sales pitches”; rather they are presentations that will provide valuable information about your chosen product/topic. There is a limit of 6 presentations. Theater Showcase pricing is $400.
Advertise in the Convention Program
Every year, over a thousand superintendents, principals, IT, and other school leaders attend the SLATE Convention. There is no better way to familiarize your business or organization with these school decision-makers than to exhibit at SLATE and advertise in our Program. As an exhibitor at the SLATE Convention, we welcome and encourage you to advertise in our SLATE Program. Ad space is limited. SLATE Program This publication is the comprehensive program of our SLATE Convention. It is distributed to all attendees and presenters. It serves as a directory of the Convention with reviews of all sessions and listing of each exhibiting company with its booth number. The ad is due November 1.

- Anything of value that could reasonably be expected to influence the official’s vote.
- Anything of value that could reasonably be considered a reward for official action.
A local public official may accept meals, refreshments, and the like without charge that are provided, sponsored, and/or sanctioned by the conference organizer. For complete information, please reference Wisconsin Ethics Law.
