Why sponsor 2021 National SEL Conference?

Interest in SEL is at an all-time high. The COVID-19 pandemic has increased attention on social and emotional learning in our nation. Everyone is seeking tools, curricula and assessments that are proven to work.

Sponsorship for the virtual 2021 National Social and Emotional Learning Conference (May 17-19) is your chance to reach a cross-sector of attendees from education and school administration, afterschool, bullying and youth violence prevention, health, juvenile justice, higher education and youth advocacy fields. Our participants are decision-makers with buying power. And as a virtual conference with a reduced cost for registrant participation, we are prepared to welcome far more than the 800+ attendees anticipated for a live conference last spring.

Join us as a sponsor to highlight your program or organization. Each sponsorship opportunity comes with a tailored array of benefits and privileges. Contact us today!


Lead Generation

Not only will this conference bring you hundreds of compatible potential customers, but it will also provide you with the opportunity to make personal connections and build your mailing list. The Center for Exhibition Industry Research states that it costs 62% less to close a lead generated from a trade show/conference than one that originated in the field.

Develop and Strengthen Your Brand

For new entrants to SEL, equity education, community support, youth development, afterschool and related K-12 fields, showcasing what you do at the SEL Conferences is the fastest way to grow market share. For established organizations, this conference is a great way to let your target audience know about your latest offerings.

Highlight Your Commitment to SEL

Our conference, like most others, is not possible without the financial commitment of sponsors. Attendees have an inherent respect for those who step up and commit funds that make forums for learning and advancing SEL efforts possible. In turn, that commitment helps distinguish your organization as a legitimate resource for SEL solutions.

Demand for SEL Products and Services if High and Expected to Grow

According to the Education Week Research Center, the vast majority of K-12 school districts have invested in SEL products or plan to do so in the coming year. Many of our conference attendees are the decision-makers who will select which programs they bring to their districts. The time to get the attention of those decision-makers is NOW!
