Exhibitor FAQ’s:
Q: Why should I exhibit at the PETE&C Conference?

A: PETE&C is the largest educational technology conference in Pennsylvania. It draws educators and technologists from around the state who want to learn about and purchase products that can benefit their schools. These attendees represent school districts and educational entities that are a huge technology market for hardware, software, web services, furniture, AV products, education programs and more. One of the benefits of being a PETE&C exhibitor is that you are eligible to apply to present educational sessions. Hospitality opportunities are also available. Exhibitors receive complimentary conference registrations for their exhibit booth reps.
