The Hub

The “Hub" that launched as a new Expo format for the 2022 conference is BACK! 

The Hub allows for more engagement, networking, the place for impromptu meetings, tabletop exhibits and full exhibit booths, micro-learning, Poster Sessions and Showcases -- in the heart of the conference hotel, convenient for the attendees! There were over 25 exhibitors at the 2022 Conference, this is your chance to engage with the attendees this year!

Exhibits provide an opportunity for YOU to showcase your organization, resources and products as they apply to the FCS world. AAFCS Communities, Affiliates, partners, and other organizations are invited to participate and reserve exhibit space. The Hub is open Saturday, June 24 through Monday, June 26th. The 2023 conference offers traditional exhibit space without the pipe and drape display. The open concept allows for more visibility and more engagement! Exhibitors receive a discounted registration ($200)! 

If you have questions that you cannot find the answers on this page and are interested in participating in the "Hub" at the 2023 conference, please email for more information. And don't forget to SAVE THE DATE for the 2024 conference!
