early bird special for exhibitors
Monumental, inspirational, educational, mind-blowing, STEMTastic-- these are just some of the words used to describe the exhibit spaces at the 3rd USA Science & Engineering Festival! This past April, over 325,000 visitors walked the halls of the D.C. Convention Center and explored some of the most creative and exciting exhibits ever seen at a science fair! The feedback on the exhibit booths was incredible and we would love to welcome our past (and new) exhibitors to take advantage of our "early bird" Exhibitor rates for 2016 which guarantees your exhibit booth at a special discount, an offer currently open to the first 200 organizations that register for, and purchase their exhibit booth space.
