Exhibitors can order via sending in the form or going to https://ordering.edlen.com/ and placing an online order.

The 500 watt outlet will cover a phone charger/computer. This includes 1 plug. We would recommend bringing a power strip to save money (if you want to plug in a charger and computer at the same time). We also have power strips available for order. For the basic 500 watt outlet, only pages 2 and 3 of the form will need to be completed.  For inline booths, the outlet will be in the back center of the space.

Hotel Scam Alert

Each year, a third-party company claims to be booking rooms on behalf of Great Homeschool Conventions. This is a scam; their rates are $45–$70 higher than what GHC has negotiated with area hotels.

We have nothing to do with this company and they do not represent us in any way.

Please book your accommodations through one of the options on the Great Homeschool Conventions website to take advantage of our negotiated rates.
