Convention & Building Products Expo
For Vendors : Expo Education Programs (EEPs)
Host a program in your Booth!
The AIA Wisconsin Building Products Expo will provide attendees with expanded educational opportunities right on the expo floor.
Exhibitors who also are Registered Providers under the AIA Continuing Education System (AIA/CES) are encouraged to present 15-minute Expo Education Programs (EEPs) in their booth in the Exhibit Hall during scheduled Expo hours. Exhibitors participating in Expo Education Program will be required to pay a $175 per seminar title processing fee.
Participating exhibitors will deliver a quick burst of relevant, content-rich information in 15-minute sessions. Those attending four quarter-hour sessions earn 1.0 learning unit hour. They can earn .25 LU Hour for each subsequent program. AIA Wisconsin will compile and report member participation in four or more 15-minute sessions for the AIA/CES credit.
EEPs will help encourage additional traffic throughout the Expo by offering AIA members the opportunity to learn valuable information about the latest technologies and applications. These sessions cannot be “sales pitches” or “product demos.”
Examples of acceptable educational activities at an exhibit booth include: short videos, PowerPoint presentations, hands-on demonstrations, games and trivia contests and computer exercises.
