Conference Vendors

2024 IAEA Statewide Conference

October 17-19, 2024
Bloomington-Normal Marriott Conference Center

The Illinois Art Education Association includes K-12 educators from across the state who teach in public, private, and parochial schools, as well as art education faculty and pre-service students from colleges and universities.

As a vendor at our fall conference you will have access to hundreds of art educators who are eager to see new products and learn how to use them! They want to know about camps, universities, and opportunities for their students, as well as professional development opportunities for themselves. Attendees love the vendor hall!

Vendors are welcome to offer workshops to showcase new products and have hands-on experiences throughout the conference. Demonstrations are highly encouraged at your booth and as one of our sessions!

Thanks to our vendors and sponsors, the Illinois Art Education Association is able to raise money for scholarships through our conference raffle, give gift bags to our K-12 student award-winning artists, and provide swag bags for our attendees. Please consider donating art supplies for swag bags, raffle prizes for teachers, or award prizes for students! Even if you cannot attend the conference, please consider donating to this worthy cause.

We have great offers for this year’s conference at different levels. We are offering these levels of sponsors for this year: Platinum Sponsor, Gold Sponsor, and Silver Sponsor. Please see below what is offered with each of these sponsorship levels.

We would love to see you this October 17-19th. To reserve your space, choose from the options below and email Jilian Reints at [email protected]
