Five Tips to Success at the AASHE Conference & Expo

Activate your exhibit space – Take action to make your booth a hub of activity in the expo hall. Instead of waiting for attendees to come to you, consider coordinating a contest, innovative interactions, or giveaways to generate buzz.

  • Borrow some ideas from Metro Exhibits and The Huffington Post
  • Check out the exhibitor service manual for information on ordering additions to your booth, including signage, displays, lighting and floral arrangements.

Advertise with AASHE – Building awareness and excitement about your organization’s participation in the months leading up to the conference has attendees thinking about you before they’ve even arrived. We have a number of different platforms through which you can connect with AASHE members and conference attendees.

  • Reach over 9,700 weekly subscribers in the AASHE Bulletin, the premier electronic newsletter on higher education advancements in sustainability.
  • There are also opportunities in a number of AASHE publications, as well as our website.

Social marketing promotion – Developing a social campaign for the weeks leading up to and during the conference, will be crucial to informing attendees that you’ll be there about what you’ll have to offer. Email signature copy, promotional language, social media copy and more can be found below.
