Conference Vendors & Sponsors

Vendors are big part of AALECE’s annual summer conference. Our conference participants represent all sectors of the early education community, including small businesses, faith-based and Head Start program participants. Our conference attracts owners and directors, which means we can link your company with individuals who have the purchasing power to buy your products and services.

We would love for you to consider bringing your business to the beach with us at AALECE’s 2019 conference, “Riding the Waves of Change”. On the buttons below, you will see the option to download and print our Vendor Application Form or complete the process on line.

If you have any questions or need more information, please contact us at!
