2017 Schools of the Future Conference 

Sponsors and Exhibitors 

The Ninth Annual Schools of the Future Conference convenes on Thursday & Friday, October 26 & 27, 2017 at the Hawaii Convention Center, and is open to all public, private, parochial and charter school educators, as well as to parents, students, and business & community members, with an expected attendance of more than 1,800 conferees over the two days of the event.

The SOTF Conference is jointly presented by the Hawaii Association of Independent Schools, the Hawaii State Department of Education, and the Hawaii Community Foundation in partnership with the Hawaii Society for Technology in Education and the Pillars of Peace Hawaii Fund.  There will be more than 100 presentations by keynote speakers, featured speakers and school educators sharing best practices for 21st Century teaching & learning over the two days of the conference.  More information about the conference is available at the conference web site by clicking here.  

Sponsors are provided booth space in the exhibit area and allowed to present during one or more of the concurrent breakout sessions depending upon level of sponsorship.  Exhibitors are provided booth space in the exhibit area.  There are just 68 booth spaces available in the exhibit area.
