Applications are now being accepted for the 2020 Exhibit Hall.
HEAV hosts one of the largest homeschool conventions in the country, with approximately 12,000 participants each year. To meet the needs of homeschooling families, we are looking for products and services that are exciting, unique, and of interest to our primarily Christian homeschool attendees.
To help make our exhibitors successful in their endeavors, we carefully review each exhibitor’s products and services to avoid duplication of vendor types and ensure each exhibitor has the best possible chance of success.
HEAV reserves the right to refuse any exhibitor, and offers no comment or reason when invitations are not extended.
At this time we are not accepting applications from independent consultants that work with multi-level marketing companies.
