Exhibitors are a key part of our convention, so we encourage you to plan time to visit the exhibit hall at the Arizona Home Education Convention Friday, July 10 and Saturday, July 11, 2015. With over 200 booths in more than 80,000 square feet of exhibit hall space, you will find an array of some of the finest homeschool resources.
AFHE's 32nd Annual Home Education Convention will be held Friday, July 10 and Saturday, July 11, 2015 at the Phoenix Convention Center, South Building. We are grateful for the businesses who come and support the work of AFHE and provide our convention attendees with a wide array of quality curriculum and resources from which to choose. Many of the exhibitors have a great deal of knowledge and expertise and are happy to answer your questions and assist you. Be sure to stop and chat with them and thank them for investing the time and resources to come the AFHE Convention!
We are proud of the way our attendees support the exhibitors at our convention! We get compliments every year from our exhibitors. They say Arizona homeschoolers are some of the nicest, most supportive, and best shoppers in the nation! It isn't cheap for them to travel around the country serving the homeschool community and it's a blessing to be able to buy from them and support their great work, while finding quality resources and curriculum for our families.
Exhibit Hall Etiquette for Attendees
Many of the exhibitors are experts in their field, and we encourage you to take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to learn from them. When an exhibitor takes the time and effort to explain a product or give beneficial advice, please buy the product from the exhibitor who took the time with you. It is unfair to take advantage of one exhibitor's time and knowledge and then purchase that product for less from a competitor. Buying materials from the exhibitor who took the time with you encourages an atmosphere of trust and sharing. It also encourages the return of knowledgeable, well-established exhibitor to our annual convention.
Thank you for supporting these great families and businesses!
