OCTOBER 25-27, 2013 • PALM SPRINGS
BENEFITS TO EXHIBITING
Targeted and Engaged Audience
Approximately 1,500 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.

door prize drawing on Saturday, October 26, 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.

Commercial workshops are $100/hour and are offered concurrently
with other conference sessions. During the workshop,
exhibitors may conduct product demonstrations, model
lessons, and provide the opportunity for the teachers
to have hands-on experiences with their products. The
only restriction is that no sales may take place in
commercial workshop sessions. Sales are only allowed
on the exhibit hall floor. For
