Vendor Opportunities

The Annual Conference is Oct 17-18, 2017 (Tuesday & Wednesday) and will be held at the Best Western Robert Treat Hotel in Newark, NJ.

The Associate Members-only Vendor Pre-sale starts 10 am EDT Monday Aug 21. Associate Members received an email containing the link to the online order form at that time. Join/Renew today. 

Vendor & Ad Sales will open to the public on Monday, Aug 28, at 10:00 am EDT. Subscribe to the Annual Conference newsletter to receive the email notification. The link to the order form will also appear on this page at that time.

Step 1: Review the Vendor Fees, Options & Booth Floor Plan

Download the Vendor Prospectus, which contains all pricing information, the booth floor plan, and pertinent information about the benefits of supporting the NJ Charter Schools Conference as a vendor or advertiser. See what spaces have been sold. Also consider our Sponsor Opportunities. You can also see a list of exhibitors from last year’s conference.

Associate Members Receive a Discount

Associate Members receive a discount on booth & advertisement sales, plus on conference badges. Associate Membership is $600/year and is for charter school vendors, suppliers, CMOs, nonprofits, and consultants who want to reach the charter school market. This membership terms runs on the calendar year from January to December. Membership is not required to be an exhibitor and being a member does not guarantee a table space at the Annual Conference. Joining or renewing should occur prior to starting the exhibit and badge purchase process. Join/renew online with a credit card.

Step 2: Place Your Order Online

All vendors (except sponsors) must place their order online. The link to the order form will appear here on Aug 28. Here are some tips:

  • If you’re buying a booth, the order form has a live, interactive floor plan. Once you are in the form and have chosen your booth space(s), you’ll have 30 minutes to complete the transaction before the booth is released back for sale.
  • Be prepared with alternate booth spaces in case your preferences have been sold. You will be able to see on the floor plan which companies have already purchased booths so you can identify competitors or allies.
  • Badge registration is processed on a separate online form. All exhibitors & sponsors will be sent instructions for registering for all complimentary badges and can purchase more as needed.

Can’t Exhibit? Be an Advertiser.

We also offer non-exhibiting opportunities for outreach, such as advertisements in print and on the mobile app. The Vendor Prospectus contains details and pricing. All orders must be placed through the online order form.

Get Even More Visibility with a Sponsorship

If your company seeks more visibility, find your options in the Sponsor Prospectus. Sponsor packages can be customized to fit your company’s budget and outreach goals. Many packages include benefits and opportunities not available to exhibitors; the most exclusive sponsorships can include booth spaces. All sponsorship packages are negotiated off-line through a discussion with Carrie Wetherby, NJCSA Manager of Membership & Events, at 609-989-9700;4410, or cwetherby@njcharters.org.

Vendor Fees

NEW FOR 2017: This is a table-top exhibition only. There are only 56 spaces available this year, down from 100 in previous years. NJCSA is expecting a high proportion of classroom teachers & instructional leaders to attend the conference on Tuesday (Day 1). Vendors who feature instructional materials & services may see Option 1, below, as the best opportunity to showcase their products to a large number of their end users.

Prices are per table NJCSA Associate Members Nonmembers
Option 1: Two-day Table (both Tues & Wed)

*Recommended for companies selling instructional products & services

$1750 $2200
Option 2: One-day Table (Wed Oct 18 only)

*Recommended for companies focused on charter school operations

$1450 $1900
Premium Visibility Spaces (Tues & Wed)

These Reserved spaces are the only Ballroom-located tables that can be set up for both days. Your company will gain extra exposure by having slightly larger vendor space adjacent to the main stage, causing your brand to appear in photos and videos taken of performances on stage, and also will be accessible during all meals, the reception, plus the 20-Year Salute to Charters event.

Must submit a rendering of your high-quality display materials.

 Each space comes with 6’x30” draped table, two chairs & two complimentary booth badges. Additional badges may be purchased at the pricing shown below.
