The Pennsylvania Association of Intermediate Units’ Annual Conference provides professional development and networking opportunities to over 350 senior-level IU leaders annually. The 2024 PAIU Annual Conference will be held at Kalahari Resort in Pocono Manor, PA from May 29-31.

We learned a lot by hearing feedback & suggestions from last year's sponsors/exhibitors about ways to increase engagement with their target audiences.  We plan to implement a number of changes this year to enhance our business partners' experience, will include them more in programming with increased networking opportunities that provide a better return on your investment.  This includes modifications to the exhibit hall layout to increase traffic, removal of the air wall separating the exhibit hall from the main session space in the ballroom (as much as possible), relocating all breaks to the exhibit hall (and still holding both receptions there), color coding attendee name badges, and “gamifying” exhibitor interactions with IU attendees (including raffle prizes to encourage visiting exhibit tables).

2024 Sponsorship Options:

    Conference Gold Sponsor: $12,000
    As a Gold Sponsor, you will have the opportunity to fully engage with IU leaders throughout the conference, and to present your company’s products/services and partnership opportunities to IU Executive Directors. Gold Sponsorship includes the following:
