The HUB

Forget what you know about traditional exhibit halls. The 2018 National Principals Conference HUB will be like nothing you’ve seen before, and will feature the following areas:

  • Connection Center
    An open space to cultivate relationships and learn more about NASSP membership, programs, products, and services, as well as the association’s advocacy efforts and how to get involved.
  • Smart Talks
    Short presentations by exhibitors that are jam-packed with helpful information about new and innovative education solutions–all under 30 minutes each!
  • Innovation Lab
    Break out your smartphone or tablet and get ready to learn how the latest tools, apps, and technology are helping advance teaching and transform learning.
  • Think Tank
    Drive the conversation and connect in a space designed to support discussions on attendee-directed topics.
  • Innovation Playgrounds
    A hands-on area where attendees explore new technologies that can be used in schools such as laser cutters, 3D scanners, laptops, and LEGO robotics. You can also engage in a makerspace, tech lab, and CAD lab. 
  • The Marketplace
    Meet authors and conference speakers, purchase books, and get them signed. You will also find NASSP, Honor Society, and National Student Council merchandise and conference items for sale. 
  • ContinueOn
    A gathering place directly in front of the exhibit hall, where attendees can fuel their collaborative energy by connecting with peers and continuing their discussions after sessions have ended.
