There are opportunities to be an exhibitor, be a general sponsor, or even a sponsor of a specific event. Companies and organizations wanting to be an exhibitor on Friday October 30th can register at the Bronze level. Those wishing to have visibility throughout the Convention can elect to be a sponsor at the Platinum, Gold or Silver level which all include space in the exhibit hall on Friday, October 30th. The benefits that can be leveraged at each sponsorship level are described below. Your support will be publicized in both our printed and Brailled materials and earn benefits outlined in this invitation.

Meet the largest collection of students, parents, educators, rehabilitation professionals, and community partners from across the state the weekend of Friday through Sunday, October 30 through November 1 2020 at the Westin Tysons Corner, 7801 Leesburg Pike, Falls Church, Virginia 22043, 703-893-1340.
