Exhibiting

Meet face-to-face with the movers and shakers in child welfare. CWLA national conference exhibitors reach CEOs, administrators, and other child and family experts who are eager to explore new thinking and new products. As a bonus, CWLA vendors receive the pre- and post-conference attendee mailing lists for marketing.

Exhibiting at CWLA is both easy and affordable. The exhibit hall is the hub of our conference; it is located near all our workshops and sessions. Our popular CWLA Bookstore and Recharging Station are located in the exhibit hall. Booth Bingo and food functions drive traffic to and through it!

Past exhibitors include software vendors, publishers, brokers, trainers, accreditors, member agencies, and other organizations with a message to share. Exhibiting at CWLA is effective and rewarding.

Interested in sponsoring conference Twitter, our “Advocacy Day” shuttles, conference totes, the Tuesday evening Gala, and/or a snack break or reception? Call Karen Dunn at 202/688-4157 or e-mail kdunn@cwla.org. We have opportunities for nearly every organization and budget. CWLA sponsors get lots of bang for their buck!
