2017 Spring Conference & Exhibits - Exhibitor Registration

2017 Spring Conference & Exhibits - Exhibitor Registration
The Spring Conference is WASBO's biggest event of the year with something to offer for all WASBO Members. There are over 60 educational sessions, 120 exhibitors, the WASBO Foundation student scholarship fundraising bike ride and golf outing, WASBO professional recognition award presentations, a silent auction benefiting participation in ASBO International, plenty of opportunities to network and this year a chance to celebrate WASBO! You will want to say "I was there to celebrate WASBO being 70 Years Strong!"

As of 3:14 PM on January 19, all exhibit booth spaces have been sold. If you are interested in being placed on the waiting list, please fill out the online waiting list form.

Register today for the 70th Annual WASBO Spring Conference and Exhibits, as the exhibit hall routinely sells out.  In addition to dedicated exhibit hall time, all Thursday breaks after the exhibit hall opens will be held in the exhibit hall. The silent auction and raffle fundraiser will also be held in the exhibit hall area. The WASBO Spring Conference adds up to more opportunities to meet school district professionals in the areas of school business, facilities, transportation, and purchasing. These are the decision makers of school business in Wisconsin's K12 schools. Share your expertise in WASBO's exhibit hall as you showcase your products and services.
