The National Education Association opened its 146th annual meeting yesterday at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. As part of the program, the NEA is offering an accompanying trade show that kicked off yesterday and runs through tomorrow with 235 exhibitors—from Pizza Hut to the Peace Corps—looking to reach the 17,000 expected attendees.
Appealing to the crowd of educators, the exhibitors put up thorough displays of their programs, services, and wares. The usual trade show giveaways (think pens and key chains) were the standard, with a few booths taking the extra step to garner attention. Here's a look at some of the stand-out exhibits.
