In addition to instructors, conference attendees include students preparing to teach, paraprofessionals, volunteers, refugee service providers, administrators and teacher educators.

  3. Contribute door prizes
  4. Host or co-host a reception/coffee break

We welcome your active participation as we host Minnesota’s ESL, Bilingual and Migrant Education teachers at this excellent conference! This is a great time to increase your company’s involvement in our annual conference.

As always, we have set aside time in the program for conference attendees to visit your exhibits. The exhibit area for the general conference at the Hyatt Regency Minneapolis is a wide, well-lit, comfortable promenade/foyer. Please plan for HIGH traffic from conference attendees and the general public in this large and welcoming space connected to the Minneapolis Skyway system.

We look forward to seeing you in November!
