The Alabama Association for Gifted Children's state conference will be held Wednesday-Friday on October 11 - 13, 2023, at the Birmingham Marriott hotel on Highway 280 (3590 Grandview Parkway). Our conference theme is “Soaring to New Heights in Gifted Education.” We have several opportunities for you to participate, and we hope you’ll join us. 

Our keynote speaker Thursday will be Dr. Emily Mofield, assistant professor at Lipscomb University teaching courses in Gifted Education and Advanced Academics Program. Our Friday keynote speaker is Dr. Brian Housand, the coordinator of the Academically or Intellectually Gifted program at University of North Carolina Wilmington.

Your participation as a vendor this year will get conference admission for up to two people. This year is “First come, first served” on your selection of where you want your table. Once registered, I will follow up and mark your selection for your booth. Additionally, we are giving you the free option of adding your logo and a brochure/pdf to our app this year through Whova. Exhibitor space is $400 for one 5' table. Booths also include tablecloths, chairs, conference bag, snack bag, and company information listed in the App Exhibitor Directory. Access to electricity is $75. This year, we will host a breakfast Friday in the atrium of the vendor area as a way to encourage foot traffic your way on the last day.

There are several opportunities to participate in the conference. There is an opportunity to be a Tier 1 sponsor of either a keynote or the app (three Tier 1 sponsorships are available in total), and there are Tier 2 and Tier 3 sponsorship opportunities with additional app inclusions. Additionally, if you’d like to sponsor a coffee/snack break or lunch, I can follow up with details if you’ll reach out. The details for the tier sponsorship opportunities are on Page 2 of this letter.

We will host Parent Night Wednesday night of the conference as a virtual event, and you can be the lead sponsor that night for $300. Last year, we had over 100 parents participate. With your sponsorship of the night, you would have the opportunity to speak about your program for five minutes, the chance to introduce the speaker if you would like, and we will include a digital handout you select in our communication with the parents the following day.

Exhibitors/vendors may set up on Tuesday after 5:00 PM and Wednesday at 7:00 AM. Exhibit hours are from 7:30 AM - 3:00 PM Wednesday through Friday. We will have “swag” bags for you at registration and we’d ask that you bring a door prize we can give away to attenders.

Registration for exhibitors/vendors is online at

The deadline for registration is September 27, 2023. Registration may be accessed by visiting our website.

If you have questions, don’t hesitate to contact me. I hope to see you in October.
