Exhibiting at the TDEA Convention is a great way to reach hundreds of dance educators and network with other vendors!
Our exhibitor members are a huge part of the success that TDEA has had over the years. These members usually range from a variety of businesses that impact the dance and dance team community including fundraising, costuming, choreography and instruction, prop / pom makers, performance and competition compaines, team travel, and uniform designers. Our Exhibitor Members enjoy many great benefits each year:
Most of our Exhibitor Members NEVER miss our annual convention. Our exhibit hall is one of the best in the nation for attracting dance/drill team directors and dance educators. To our existing exhibitor members, we offer Early Bird pricing discounts on booth space at convention as well as giving them the first opportunity to reserve their space from the previous year. One of our goals at TDEA is to highlight and help promote the exhibitors who help support TDEA and its members through our newsletters, convention materials and prominent signage at convention. Exhibitors enjoy being a part of making our convention memorable by elevating their sponsorship of TDEA and participating in our exhibitor recognition program.
