Vendor Exhibit Information

CCSC:SE is pleased to invite both national and local vendors to exhibit their technology/education-related products during the conference. Textbooks, software and hardware are among the types of products that have been exhibited in the past.

The conference will provide a large exhibit area in an ideal location, immediately adjacent to the rooms in which the conference presentations will be given. Exhibits will be open Friday, November 10th from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Saturday, November 11th from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon.

Vendor Benefits

This conference should offer the following advantages to exhibitors:

  1. an opportunity to interact on a personal level with a significant number of persons directly responsible for the purchase of your products, representing a large geographical area;
  2. an opportunity to make contact with individuals who do not attend national meetings regularly because of the limited travel funds available to participants from the smaller institutions that make up the bulk of our institutional population;
  3. the opportunity to demonstrate your products to an interested audience;
  4. the relatively low cost of exhibiting.

Attendee Demographics

Records from recent meetings show that approximately 90-110 regional faculty attend this conference. These participants are mostly from CCSC Southeast region (North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, Virginia, Florida). Many of these participants have primary responsibilities for recommending and purchasing computer hardware and software needed to implement their various programs as well as responsibility for teaching. Registrants have frequently expressed both appreciation for corporate representatives who attended, and interest in seeing more exhibits.

Vendor Registration

The vendor registration fee is $50. Exhibitors will be provided with a six-foot table, two to four chairs, and access to electricity in the exhibitor area. If you have other needs, CCSC:SE will attempt to meet them if you list these in the appropriate space on the application form.

This fee also entitles all members of the exhibiting team to attend as many sessions as desired. It does not, however, include copies of the conference proceedings or tickets to the banquet on Friday evening and luncheon on Saturday. Tickets may be purchased individually for the banquet ($25) or luncheon ($10), as desired.

If you are interested in participating in the conference as an exhibitor, please complete the application form and send it with payment to the address noted.

National Partners

National partners pay a single annual fee that entitles them to exhibit their products and services at any of the eight regional conferences of CCSC. Current national partners include:

  1. IBM
  2. Microsoft
  3. National Computational Science Institute
  4. O'Reilly

If you are a national partner and wish to exhibit at CCSC:SE, please send the application form minus the registration fee. If you are interested in becoming a national partner, please complete the national partner registration form.
