4. Why is the Fair at the Marriott and not at the Conference Location?
We are co-sponsoring the 2020 AAEE Fair with the national education honorary, Kappa Delta Pi (KDP).  Because KDP’s conference venue is the Louisville Downtown Marriott, the AAEE fair will be held there to make it as easy as possible for KDP’s future educators to attend the fair.
