Vendor Lightning Rounds: Tuesday, July 30

Join us in the Exhibitor Hall on Tuesday afternoon for Vendor Lightning Rounds and your chance to WIN! Visit vendors at their tables for a lightning-fast (well, 6 or 7 min) presentation on the latest and greatest – and then listen for the signal to move to the next table.

But choose wisely! You only get to visit 3 vendors and then we’re done. Every Lightning Round you take part in gets you a chance to win door prizes. Snacks and drinks will be provided along with a fun, relaxing time before we all head out to dinner.

Lunch & Awards: Wednesday, July 31

It’s a multi-year tradition to recognize excellence among adult students and literacy volunteers on the second day of the conference.

Winners who are able to attend the conference will get the chance to tell their story after receiving their award. Find all the details here.

The 2022 Annual Awards are sponsored by BurlingtonEnglish.

2024 winners will be announced July 31
