Market Session Information and Proposal Form

Market Sessions are available only to conference exhibitors or conference sponsors. These presentations are in addition to the opportunity to exhibit at the conference.

Market Sessions are available in our conference schedule. These sessions are designed for individuals or groups wishing to market or sell a school health education product or service (see proposal form).

Rationale
Market Sessions provide conference attendees the opportunity to interact and share in an in-depth look at a new product or service. During a Market Session, for example, a publisher of a health education textbook will present the new materials directly to district health teachers/coordinators. Thus, important details can be discussed regarding a textbook which may be considered for adoption.
Information
No Market Session will be offered concurrently with another Market Session. No more than seven Market Sessions will be scheduled during the conference. You will receive confirmation of your scheduled time slot or, possibly, a notification of the unavailability of your time preferences.
Deadline: All Market Session requests must be received by October 31, 2002.
Cost: $250
