The Exhibit Hall

The event includes an exhibit hall located in the same room as the keynote presentation, providing maximum visibility of the exhibitor booths.

Exhibitors are invited to participate in order to:

  • Showcase services or products face-to-face with Montessori practitioners

  • Increase awareness with individuals and organizations
  • Make sales right on the spot

A booth in the Exhibit Hall costs:

  • $175 per table if you are a for-profit vendor
  • $150 per table for non-profit vendors.
  • This includes admission to the conference and lunch for one person (additional personnel can be added for a $40 fee on the registration page.)
  • The 8’ x 10’ exhibit space includes one 6’-skirted table and two side chairs.
  • Wi-fi is provided for all exhibitors at no additional cost.
  • Electricity is available.

Businesses exhibiting at the conference are subject to all applicable state laws regarding sales and use tax. Here is a publication from Kentucky that may be helpful. It is strictly your responsibility to determine your tax status.

Sharing or subleasing of booth space is not permitted. No pets or animals shall be permitted in the Exhibit Hall, with the exception of service animals for persons with disabilities.

The exhibitor’s name, logo and link to the website will be listed on the CMS website’s conference exhibitor page. 

Information for Sponsorship Opportunities

We would like to invite you to participate in the 2024 CMS Conference by sponsoring this exceptional gathering of Montessori professionals. Our sponsors help defray the cost of putting on this major event, making it accessible for teachers from all types of schools.

The Society’s primary goal is to provide a network of support for Montessori Schools. As the face of American education continues to evolve, Maria Montessori’s theories become more relevant than ever. Last year’s conference attracted a large group of teachers and administrators who enjoyed presentations and discussions on diverse topics relevant to their unique roles in the educational community.

The CMS Conference offers an opportunity for your business or organization to increase exposure to this regional network of Montessori schools. The unique venue allows your business to directly target potential customers through conference programs, web exposure, signage and face-to-face interaction with attendees.
