The Children's Expo is a parent's treasure trove for informational, educational, and recreational resources for school-age children! The Bloomington/Monroe County Convention Center is the new headquarters for the huge expo hall, which brings together child care providers, sports league coordinators, summer camp directors, education program leaders, health care providers, and many more to answer questions and become the go-to resource for healthy, active families.

Exhibit Space Available at the Children's Expo!

Booth spaces in the Children's Expo exhibit hall include one 8' table, two chairs, tablecloth, and skirting. Parents visiting the Expo Hall at Children's Expo typically bring their young children. The most popular exhibitor booths offer an interactive component to keep little hands busy while exhibitors talk with parents. We encourage all exhibitors to offer a children's activity. Children's Expo staff strongly discourage handing out candy. Food offered at exhibitor booths should be healthy and age-appropriate.

Booth spaces are limited in number and are sold on a first-come, first-served basis. Booth assignments will be determined on the deadline date. Registrations received after March 4 will be placed in remaining booth spaces, and business name may not appear in promotional materials.

For-profit exhibitor space: $75/Not-for-profit exhibitor space $65

Regular Price (February 13-March 4)
