OCTOBER 14-16, 2021




The annual IAGC Conference traditionally draws over 700 educators and parents who are focused on gifted and talented learners for three days of presentations and networking. This year, we will be holding our conference virtually to welcome attendees from where they are!

Thursday and Friday features national experts and educational leaders in the field of gifted education throughout the state. Attendees will include school administrators, curriculum directors, gifted coordinators, differentiation specialists, and classroom teachers in all roles and across all grade levels. Saturday is devoted to parents from 8:00 a.m. until 1:15 p.m. The IAGC Parent Saturday Forum features a special program focused on strategies to support advanced learners at home, and to build home-school partnerships to support advanced learners. 

Do you have a product or service that might be of interest to our participants? The IAGC offers  a variety of special sponsor and exhibitor packages, which  afford a variety of ways to market your company or organization to our conference participants and our members.

For a detailed listing of the offerings at various levels, see our Conference Sponsor and Exhibitor Packages chart at the bottom of this page. All attendees may visit our virtual Exhibitor Booths and Sponsor Center at any time throughout the conference.
