Exhibit at MCEL!

MCEL –The Premier Annual Event for School Leaders in Montana!

The Montana Conference of Education Leadership is the premier annual event for almost 1,000 Montana Public Education Leaders who gather for education seminars with dynamic speakers, knowledge sharing and networking, and of course, product and meeting site shopping. This is your opportunity to make valuable contacts and develop relationships with key leaders making purchasing decisions totaling over $250 million each year. No other event in Montana brings together the state’s top players in public education like MCEL!

New this year!

To increase visitors to our Exhibitor area, the MCEL Partners will be providing each Exhibitor Booth grand prize tickets to distribute to attendees as they visit the booths. These tickets will give attendees a chance to enter the grand prize drawing giveaways that will take place end of the closing keynote address of MCEL 2017. Visiting with the Exhibitors will be the only way the attendees can receive tickets for these great prizes.  To also help increase traffic to the exhibitor area, we will be holding "Thought Leaders Sessions" that will take place in the Exhibitor Hall. We have scheduled Exhibitor Prize Drawings during the Thursday afternoon session.


Exhibit booth rates: $750 regular | $850 premium 

Exhibit set-up hours: October 18 - 3:00 - 6:00 pm
