About NYSSBA's Annual Convention & Education Expo
The New York State School Boards Association’s 2021 Annual Convention & Education Expo will host the largest gathering of publicly-elected officials and education administrators in the Northeast at the New York Hilton Midtown, October 24-26. As an exhibitor and/or sponsor you can showcase your products and services to education leaders, who have $70 billion to spend equipping and managing their school districts and Boards of Cooperative Educational Services, with the resources to effectively manage and govern their schools.
Market your products and services to one of the largest K-12 public education audiences in New York. Reach more than 90% of the school districts and Boards of Cooperative Education Services (BOCES) in New York State, and approximately 5,000 school board members empowered as stewards of annual school budgets ranging from about $10 million to $894 million through year round Convention advertising and member word of mouth. Peruse our 2021 Product Category list to see what our attendees are looking for.
