APBS 2016 Information for Exhibitors

Become an Exhibitor

We appreciate your interest. All exhibitor tables for the APBS 2016 conference have now been sold. (January 4, 2016)

The Association for Positive Behavior Support (APBS) is announcing the Thirteenth International Conference on Positive Behavior Support (PBS), The Expanding World of PBS: Science, Values, & Vision to be held in San Francisco, CA, March 23-26. The use of positive behavior interventions and supports (PBIS) is a provision of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act that addresses the support of children with disabilities and challenging behavior in public schools. This provision arose from extensive and successful research for the past two decades.

APBS evolved from the ideas of some of the most prominent researchers in the field who passionately believed in the advancement of positive behavior support. Thus, APBS strives to expand the application of this approach internationally across culturally and ethnically diverse children, adolescents, and adults with problem behavior.

APBS believes that exhibitors will continue to significantly benefit from participating in this conference. Over 1400 conference participants attended the 2015 conference in Boston. That is an astounding number of attendees for a young organization. We expect our numbers to exceed 1500 for the 2016 conference at the Westin St. Francis San Francisco, March 23-26.

The exhibit package includes: A draped six foot table, one full conference registration, and the opportunity to provide a flyer to be inserted in attendee packet (flyer must be delivered to the hotel no later than Friday, March 18, 2016, marked APBS/Ilene Page/Exhibitor Flyer. Additionally, please let APBS Event Planner Ilene Page know if you are sending a flyer to be included in the goody bags).

Tables at the conference are available on a first come, first serve basis and are $850 per table for the entire conference. All that is needed to take advantage of this offer is to fill out the attached Table Top Application (.doc version) and the APBS Sponsorship Policy Agreement (.doc version) and return the documents to Ilene Page, Conference Coordinator, as soon as possible.
