Exhibitor Information and Schedule

Welcome to the California Art Education Association State Conference in Sacramento

Teaching Art… It’s your Super Power!

Click to reserve your exhibitor/sponsor space.

This year the CAEA annual state conference will be held at the McClellan Conference Center, Sacramento, 5411 Luce Ave, McClellan Park, CA 95652. This facility offers the opportunity for our members to easily spend time in the exhibit hall.

Last year we unveiled our new Conference App. We hope you spent time on the App to check out the exhibitor and sponsor pages. These pages offered a great opportunity to provide information to all attendees including sales representatives’ phone numbers, website, email addresses, and links to videos and blogs highlighting your company. This information is available to CAEA members and attendees throughout the entire year!

This year the App offers even more opportunities to interact with attendees, including mobile alerts, banner ads and gamification!! The feature we are most excited about is a QR code for each attendee! Just scan the badges and you will build a list of people who showed interest in your company. We will be running a variety of fun events for attending that will highlight the businesses of our exhibitors and sponsors to increase your face-to-face time.
