We Want YOU to come to ChemEd 2019!

We hope that you will consider coming to Naperville, IL to exhibit your products and/or services at ChemEd 2019.  It will be an excellent opportunity to present your products and services and meet prospective clients amongst the expected ~700 chemistry educators. 

The ChemEd Exhibit Hall has been an integral part of the ChemEd conference due to attendees’ keen interest in products and services available to help teach chemistry more effectively.  Educators come to these conferences to share their ideas, their classroom and laboratory experiences, and their vision for enriching the experiences of their students.

The Exhibit Hall will be located in the centrally located Wentz Science Center and our plan is to have 41 exhibit booths. The Wentz Science Center will be a focal point of ChemEd 2019 with conference registration, and the bulk of presentations located in this building.  All other ChemEd sessions will be about a 5 minute walk from the Exhibit Hall.  This enhances the opportunities for exhibitors to interact with the participants.
