Interested in being a Vendor at our Conference?
You are invited to participate in our Vendor/Exhibitor Marketplace at our 2017 Annual Conference, which will take place Saturday October 14th. This year's conference is being hosted by the regional affiliate of OAPCE, "OAPCE York" and the York Catholic District School Board. Our conference will be held at St. Joan of Arc Catholic High School, 1 St. Joan of Arc Ave, Maple, Ontario, L6A 1W9.
The main focus of this conference is to engage parents from all across the province. Beginning Saturday morning you will have many opportunities throughout the day to interact with parents and school administrators, from all the publicly funded Catholic Schools in Ontario. This conference will provide a tremendous opportunity to showcase your company/organization to network with the parents and administrators who work in fundraising and purchasing in our schools. This year marks the 78th anniversary of the OAPCE and we are expecting approximately 250 delegates. At key times throughout the day, with dedicated break times, attendees will have the opportunity to attend the Vendor/Exhibitor Marketplace made up of groups such as yours.
At the Marketplace you will be allocated a table along with the other vendors/exhibitors. There is limited space therefore approval for tables will be allocated in the order that confirmation responses are received. Vendors/Exhibitors need to be set up and ready to go by 9:30 am.
St. Joan of Arc Catholic High School will be available for set-up at 8:00 am the day of the event. You can circulate your brochures and samples and speak to the attendees at your table on a one-to-one basis.
The fee for Vendors attending this event is $150.00/table, additional tables $100.00/table; included in your participation will be a free catered luncheon.
