General Information:

Head Start is facing a new era.  The 2016 Performance Standards were released in September. This document has set forth a new vision for full-day Head Start programs by 2019. We are creating change in amazing new ways. The Wisconsin Head Start Association is planning the 15th Annual Training Conference, “All Aboard… Together We Can Make a Difference.”  This will be another exciting conference year.  We expect to have between 450-500 participants joining us for the conference and, furthermore, are featuring two Keynote Speakers this year, Dr. Jean Feldman sharing “Rock, Rhymes, Write and Read” and Jon Walker will be presenting “Understanding My Value and Playing My Role, We all Make a Difference.”   Past exhibitors have rated the exhibit space an average of 4.87 (on a scale of 1-5), and each year we try to make improvements for the exhibitors based on their suggestions.  Exhibitors at the 2016 conference were pleased with the results.  Exhibitors will be located in the main luncheon/break room; allowing for a high volume of participant traffic. We will be open later in the evenings with a concert for families on Monday, and longer exhibit time on Tuesday.


I would like to invite you to help celebrate once again the success of Head Start. Below, there is a link to our “Exhibitor Contract.”  If you are interested in having exhibit space at the conference please complete this form and return it by email or mail to the Wisconsin Head Start Association (addresses listed below).  You will then receive confirmation as the time of the conference draws near.

Exhibitor Raffle:

Every year we have an “Exhibitor Raffle” which has been very successful at increasing traffic and interest in the exhibit area.  All conferees are issued a passport which they take to the exhibit booths.  They have the passport stamped at each booth and when the passport is completed, they put their name in for a door prize.  We are asking all exhibitors to contribute one small item for the door prizes.  If you do decide to participate in the conference, please be thinking about what you would like to contribute as we plan on including the “exhibit passport” raffle again this year.

Exhibitor Lunch:

This year we are offering exhibitors the opportunity to purchase lunches at a cost of $17.00, this is the cost the conference center charges us.  Exhibitors will be receiving the same lunch as the participants and will be eating in the dining area with the participants. If you are interested in lunch, please indicate this on your completed contract.  Luncheon fees must be paid at the time of submitting your completed contract.
