APBS 2023 Information for Exhibitors

Become an Exhibitor

The Association for Positive Behavior Support (APBS) is announcing the 20th International Conference on Positive Behavior Support (PBS), The Expanding World of PBS: Science, Values, & Vision to be held in Jacksonville, FL, March 29-April 1, 2023. 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 1300 conference participants attended the 2022 hybrid conference. We expect our numbers to exceed this for the 2023 conference at the Hyatt Regency Jacksonville, Riverfront, March 29-April 1, 2023

The exhibit package includes: A draped six foot table, one full conference registration, and the opportunity to upload materials into the exhibitor portion of the conference virtual platform and the conference mobile app.

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 (.doc version) and the APBS Sponsorship Policy Agreement (.doc version) and return the documents to Ilene Page (add email), Conference Coordinator, as soon as possible.
