Morgan Womick Education Express, Concord, NC/1st Grade Teacher
Presented by Morgan Womick of Education Express, this interactive session gives dealers an opportunity to win free samples of the most innovative and “hot” new products. The first 150 dealers will leave with a $100+ value “swag bag” full of new products for 2017-18. Now is the time to start thinking about the next generation of innovative and challenging learning products, while you enjoy lunch with your colleagues.
(dealers and vendor sponsors only)
Join your fellow dealers for an entertaining evening of games, product demonstrations, and make-and-take projects. Vendor sponsors host this lively night of hands-on learning opportunities designed to increase product knowledge, discover new selling techniques, and develop strategic partnerships. This is a great way to catch up and get every ounce of value out of your EDexpo experience.
Get energized at this unique education session where educational product dealers share their most innovative programs in 5-minute “EDtalk” presentations. Following this rapid-fire information-sharing time period, you will have a chance to discuss what you learned with fellow dealers at your table and exchange business cards as you grow your professional network. Walk out the door with countless tips and ideas that can be used in your store, on your website, or in your catalog.
Take a morning coffee break and light breakfast while you research and discover new and innovative products and compare exhibit floor notes with your peers. This informal gathering provides an opportunity to share and identify the the season’s top products with time built into the schedule to return to the exhibit hall to view products you may have missed.
