Education & Events

Education Straight From The Experts

Continued learning keeps your mind nimble, provides more opportunities, improves connections, and puts you on a path forward. Stay sharp, stay local. The courses at Expo East span a variety of topics and with new 90-minute sessions in 2020, there will be even more comprehensive conversations than before. Our Ask The Expert open discussions allow for enough Q&A time to get through the bigger questions concerning the promotional products community. And the new location for Education Day, June 3, at Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Atlantic City makes it easy to work, learn and dine, all in one venue.

The stage is set for sessions to be held in the meeting rooms at Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Atlantic City, surrounded by iconic memorabilia from some of the most exciting minds on the planet. The atmosphere for Professional Development Day on June 3 will be one of creative inspiration. Amplify your Expo East experience.
