Why Should You Be a Part of the 2017 VADEA Conference? 

The VADEA Conference is the largest professional gathering of Visual Arts and Design educators in NSW.  Our attendees tell us each year how much they appreciate being informed of new products and having an opportunity to connect with suppliers.

As a sponsor, you will make this personal connection with prospective customers.  Your brand and marketing message will be promoted as one of the most innovative and trusted in the business.  As a sponsor, you will be demonstrating your support for quality Visual Arts and Design professional development by helping to make such events possible.

 

What Products and Services are Attendees Looking For?

VADEA Conference attendees love to discover new products, concepts and techniques intended for all skill levels and ages.  They are looking for materials, ideas and services ranging from classic art supplies to up-to-the minute media, technology, processes, professional development opportunities, curriculum resources, college and university programs, visual aids, painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, woodworking, ceramic, glass, metal arts supplies, art-related travel, graphic design, photography, drafting supplies and more.
