Exhibiting at the 2021 ECA National Conference

Exhibiting at the conference is a fantastic opportunity to have direct contact with a large number of people within the early childhood sector. Exhibition booths play a very important part in the conference. The exhibition area has been designed to ensure maximum visibility and accessibility to facilitate interaction between delegates and exhibitors.

To maximise exposure, morning and afternoon teas will be served in the centre of the exhibition area, and the lunch period will also include time for exhibition viewing. As an exhibitor you will receive acknowledgment on the conference website and in the Conference Pocket Program.

If your display or exhibit has individual space or layout requirements, we are happy to discuss your specific needs and provide customised solutions.

The target market includes:
  • people working in the early childhood sector including staff, managers and operators in early childhood services
  • early childhood policy-makers and officials
  • early childhood academics
  • early childhood teachers, trainers and resource agencies
  • volunteer committees, peak bodies and advocacy organisations.
