2018 NASPA Annual Conference

Exhibit Hall Experience

Welcome to the 2018 NASPA Exhibit Hall! This is your one-stop shop for networking with your favorite partners, meeting new companies, and finding solutions and products to take back to your campus. The contributions by our sponsors and exhibitors allows NASPA to keep the registration fee low and enhances the attendee experience in so many ways!

This year, the exhibit hall will offer concurrent sessions, poster sessions, two headshot lounges, a massage station, and a NASPA lounge where you can learn about NASPA's new initiatives. There will also be several participant networking breaks! 

The Exhibit Hall will be located at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Hall E conveniently next to our Featured Session room and across from the First-time Attendee Lounge and Mentor/Mentee Engagement Corner. It's always exciting to see what new items our sponsors and exhibitors will showcase this year, so take some time out of your day to visit!

Tuesday, March 6:  9:30 a.m - 4:00 p.m.
