APBS 2019 Information for Exhibitors
Become an Exhibitor
The Association for Positive Behavior Support (APBS) is announcing the Sixteenth International Conference on Positive Behavior Support (PBS), The Expanding World of PBS: Science, Values, & Vision to be held in Washington D.C., February 20th to February 23rd. 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 1700 conference participants attended the 2018 conference in San Diego. That is an astounding number of attendees for a young organization. We expect our numbers to exceed 1700 for the 2019 conference at the Grand Hyatt Washington, Washington D.C., February 20th-23rd, 2019.
The exhibit package includes: A draped six foot table, one full conference registration, and the opportunity to provide a flyer to be posted on the conference website and in the mobile event app. Content must be sent to Ilene Page no later than Friday, February 15th 2019 to assure that they are uploaded onto the conference website and the electronic goody bag within the mobile event app. There is no limit to the number of flyers provided, however, each must be in .pdf format and under 10MB in size.
Table top exhibits 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 and the APBS Sponsorship Policy Agreement and return the documents to Ilene Page, Conference Coordinator, as soon as possible.
