Your company is cordially invited to participate as a sponsor or exhibitor for the 104th Annual Michigan PTA Convention, Friday and Saturday, July 22-23, 2022 at Best Western Premier Detroit Southfield Hotel. This event provides leadership training and workshops on relevant topics for our PTA leaders, parents, and the community. Michigan PTA has more than 300 local units representing nearly 25,000 members throughout the state. Based on previous in-person conferences, we expect to draw 150+ attendees for the 2-day convention. Additionally, on Saturday, we will hold the annual Reflections Celebration highlighting talented youth artists from across the state in the exhibit space. Reflections draws an additional 200-300 parents and educators, for a total of up to 450 booth visitors. This is an opportunity to showcase your company’s products and services to hundreds of Michigan schools.
Space is limited! There are only 25 exhibitor booths. All exhibitor booths will be in the same space as our general meetings. Join us on Friday, for bonus exhibition time, to be the first to interact with the attendees, or select a premium booth location to be placed where attendees will gather between sessions throughout the day. Passport contests and raffles will incentivize attendees to visit all the exhibitors. To provide maximum exposure to our membership and to encourage participation, we would like to publish the sponsor and exhibitor lists by July 1st.
If you are unable to join us for this event, there are many other opportunities to assist Michigan PTA as we continue to support Michigan’s children and public education.
