2018 National Education Conference
JW Marriott
Indianapolis, Indiana

Exhibitor Information

A popular event of the SILA National Education Conference is the Exhibitor Fair that helps kick-start our conferences by combining the Fair with a Welcome Reception. It's a great 'meet and greet' time for the exhibitors and the 700+ attendees expected for the 2018 SILA National Education conference.  Exhibitors play a major role in the success of the SILA conference and we hope that you will participate in the exhibitor activities and join other SILA members at the national conference sessions.
