Registered conference participants are invited to submit proposals to participate in our "Big Tent" Exposition, which will run Friday-Sunday.
On Friday the Tent Show Exposition will have its grand opening at the Oakdale Campus and offer a festive and active ambiance similar to the Iowa State Fair. Attendance at this Friday event will be open to the public. Hands-on activities for kids of all ages (5-95) is encouraged but not required.

On Saturday and Sunday, the Tent Show Exposition will move indoors to the Iowa Memorial Union, Main Lounge. Electricity and internet hook-up will be available to those who request it on the Tent Show Application.
