The educational sessions provided me with some very good curricular ideas that I will look to incorporate in the program here at Van Buren."

"Thank you for the opportunity to attend Ed Spaces, it was a great conference and very beneficial to my position. I gained a wealth of information and created many new vendor contacts. It is so important to be able to actually see and touch furniture and equipment to be able to identify the quality of the items. Definitely a great show once again along with a great location."
