Targeted and Engaged Audience
Approximately 1,800 - 2,100 science educators and preservice science teachers, from all grade levels and science disciplines, K-University. They teach life science, earth science, physical science, environmental science, marine science, integrated science, and interdisciplinary studies. Many of the attendees are leaders at their schools and in their districts. Many make purchasing decisions or have influence in the purchasing process. If you have a new product or service for science teachers, this is an excellent time to get feedback, in person, from your target audience.

Teachers attending the conference are always excited to visit the exhibit hall. They recognize the exhibit hall as the once-a-year opportunity that it is for them to meet with representatives from the companies they buy products from to ask questions and get answers. They enjoy learning about new products for their classrooms, buying supplies and books, shopping for fun and quirky science-themed gifts, clothing, and jewelry.

Exhibit Hall Hours Designed to Give Attendees Time to Visit

Exclusive exhibit hall hours on Friday, October 13, 11:10 am - 12:30 pm and Saturday, October 14, 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm (approximately six Short Courses of limited attendance sessions conflict with this time, est. 100 people)

Coordinated Door Prize Drawings
CSTA conducts a coordinated, must be present to win, door prize drawing on Saturday, October 14, 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm. Exhibitors provide the prizes and the names of the winners selected from visitors to their booth. CSTA then collects the names of the winners and announces them on the exhibit hall paging system. Prize winners then go to the exhibitor's booth to claim their prize. This way exhibitors are sure that their prize will go to someone that actually visited their booth during the show and prize winners have the opportunity to thank the exhibitor in person.

Opportunity to Present a Commercial Workshop
Commercial Workshop proposals will be accepted in late May 2017.

Discounts on Advertising in Registration Brochure and Program Book
Exhibitors who also place ads in the registration brochure and/or the program book receive discounted advertising rates. Visit the Marketing Opportunities page for more details.

Registration List
After the conference, CSTA will email you a list (Excel sheet) of attendees with mailing addresses for the majority of participants. Some participants opt-out of having their information shared, in that case, CSTA will provide you only with their name. CSTA never shares or sells email addresses. If you would like to conduct pre-show marketing, exhibitors may purchase a pre-registration mailing list after the registration cut-off date of September 25, 2017.
