Thank you for your support as an exhibitor of the Spokane Regional ESL Conference. Below is information that will help you get the most out of your experience.

Check out the conference schedule
HERE. Conference registration, the welcome, the keynote, exhibitor tables, lunch, presentation of grants and the Publishers' Raffle will be in the Commons at Mukogawa Fort Wright Institute. ALL the sessions will be in the main classroom building (7 rooms) or in the Library (5 rooms) or in Commons (1 room). We are expecting 375+ attendees.

Your purchase of your table(s) includes registration (and lunch) for one person per table. If you have additional reps (beyond the one per table), he or she would need to register via our
Individual registration page.

The tables for the exhibitors at the Commons are 8 feet x 2.5 feet. Each table will have a white table cloth with a skirt to the floor.

Attendee traffic in Commons where the exhibitor tables are located is highest from about 8 a.m. - 10:00 a.m. (although there is a keynote address during that time). Also, at around 11:30 attendees start to return to Commons for chatting and lunch which ends at 1 p.m. Then again in the afternoon starting at around 3:45 to 4:45 many people will return to Commons to celebrate
30 Years of Inspiring Teachers! There will be a festival of culture to honor Spokane's ethnic diversity and recent immigrants. Enjoy live music and performances as well as hors-d'oeuvres and special beverages. Don't miss it!

It’s best to be set up in Commons before the 8:00 a.m. start. If you would like to set up your exhibitor materials in Commons on Friday late afternoon or evening, please contact Ron Belisle, the Conference Chair, at
