Exhibitor Information

Exhibitor Photo

A popular feature of the MASC/MASS Joint Conference is the exhibit floor, which hosts companies and organizations from a wide variety of industries and disciplines. Attendance and interest in the event grows consistently each year and spaces for exhibitors sell out quickly - be sure to reserve your space quickly once exhibitor sign-up opens to guarantee a spot.

MASC also offers a number of other opportunities for businesses and organizations interested in partnering with Massachusetts schools to engage school leaders; many popular programs are available for conference sponsors, as well as many other marketing opportunities throughout the year. For more information, contact Sam Cheesman.
