Exhibit Hall

Applications are now being accepted for potential exhibitors at The Montessori Event—your best opportunity to make human connections with a passionate, joyful niche audience. The prospectus and application may be downloaded here. Booths for newly accepted exhibitors are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. We urge you to submit your application as soon as possible, as the Exhibit Hall always sells out early.

New this year is a special section for non-profits who would like to connect with the Montessori community. These tables in the Exhibit Hall are available at a much-reduced rate, and you will find the details in the prospectus.

After you download and review the prospectus, please direct any questions to George Markham, Exhibits Manager, or 212-358-1250.
