Past Participant Comments:

  • SAIS goes out of its way to include vendors/sponsors so they feel like attendees and not just extras.
  • Sponsorship exceeded expectations.
  • Great people, great food, good leads!
  • The exceptional service provided by SAIS - there's simply NO better educational organization when it comes to stellar planning and customer service.
  • SAIS Conference is state of the art. The topics are fantastic, the participants are friendly and engaging, and the SAIS staff is the gold standard. They work hard to make the experience as pleasant and easy as they can.
  • What I like best about SAIS is that the show is very well organized with little down or wasted time. Plus a big thank-you for understanding that vendors' time is valuable.
  • The event is, without question, one of the highlights of the season -- a forum that we find so valuable!
  • Excellent organization and well executed conference. There was always an SAIS staff person close by to guide, direct, answer questions, and help out. Incredible teamwork in action! Thanks for making this conference a pleasure to attend as a vendor. I felt part of the group and did not feel like an outsider, as is often the case at many conferences.
  • As a vendor, I found it very vendor-friendly ... I liked having the food close to the exhibits ... Meals were fabulous ... I love SAIS!
  • I have finally figured out why this is the best conference we attend. National conference can be too unwieldy. State conferences only have attendees from a specific state. At SAIS, school leaders who have known one another for a long time but now work in different places can reunite. As a result, the web of connections between participants is deeper, richer, and longer. This creates a congenial tone unmatched at other events and therefore makes the SAIS conference more productive than any other.
