Please join us for the SHAPE America 2021 Virtual National Convention & Expo April 13-17! This is your annual opportunity to engage with health and physical education professionals from across the country - and this year's virtual format gives you many opportunities to do so!
This year's attendees will have access to your booth 24 hours a day, giving them the flexibility to browse, day or night, and then engage with you in person during daily scheduled exhibit hall times. Gain meaningful leads to help grow your business and interact with attendees through asynchronous chat or video chat (available with Premium booths).
We have designed the virtual exhibit hall with you and your business in mind. Capture attention with engaging video footage, offer free downloadable resources, or lure attendees with exciting giveaways... the tools are there to help you engage with attendees the moment they enter your booth! And, you will remain top-of-mind long after the convention is over with the virtual exhibit hall remaining open for 45 days following the event!
