2021 – SC Homeschool Convention – March 18-20!

March 18 – 20, 2021 – Join us for the In-Person Event

Dear GHC Exhibitor Family,

With the support of our sponsor, Medi-Share, we are excited to be hosting the 2021 SC Homeschool Convention…in-person! This event is being held at the Greenville Convention Center in Greenville, SC.

In reference to covid-19, the Convention Centers are all city-owned facilities and are operating in accordance with State and Local requirements. Thank you for your patience as we continue to try to make the best of the circumstances that we all are facing as a result of the pandemic.

GHC Promotion

GHC has always been committed to providing maximum impact for our exhibitors by doing everything we can reasonably do to drive attendance to our regional conventions in general – and to the Exhibit Halls in particular. Not only do we advertise & promote these events extensively, but we have also introduced things like “Shopping Only” registrations and “Free Thursday Evening Shopping” admission… all in an effort to serve our wonderful Exhibitors well.

Please do let all those on your contact list and social media platforms know you will be exhibiting with us at the MO Homeschool Convention. You can invite them to register at www.GreatHomeschoolConventions.com. The more everyone cross promotes, the better it is for everyone in the exhibit hall.

HOTELS!

Be sure to book your hotel accommodations with our block of rooms. We have made arrangements with host hotels who give great rates to our exhibitors and attendees. Click here to view the list of SC host hotels.
