The new joint event will cover 600,000 gross square feet (over 10 football fields!) and feature exhibits from over 1,000 companies showcasing the most innovative products for students from pre-school to college.
Ed Expo is the premier showcase for the latest innovations in every facet of learning, from instructional materials, teaching aids, and technology products to educational games, toys, and supplies. Ed Expo connects buyers and sellers in the educational products marketplace and provides education and training to help dealers increase sales through exposure to best practices. The mission of the National School Supply and Equipment Association (NSSEA) is to serve the educational products marketplace by providing high quality tradeshows that increase the productivity of the channel; networking opportunities to build relationships with trading partners; and market information on which to make solid business decisions.
CAMEX is the higher education retailing industry’s largest tradeshow and educational event, featuring the newest innovations in more than 100 product categories targeted at 18-24 year-olds. It is preceded by two days of intensive retail education, speakers and special events. CAMEX is produced by the National Association of College Stores (NACS), the professional trade association representing the $10 billion collegiate retailing industry. Headquartered in Oberlin, OH, NACS represents more than 3,000 collegiate retailers and approximately 1,000 associate members who supply books and other products to college stores.
