ISTE 2011

by Allacyn - Jul 08, 2011

Last week LearnKey was exhibiting at ISTE 2011 in Philadelphia, PA. ISTE is an annual tradeshow for educators, and this year there were 18,000 attendees expected. The show was a lot of fun, and it was fun as the planner of these shows to finally be able to be a part of one. We had a steady stream of educators visit our booth over the course of three days. We met a lot of great teachers and administrators from all over the country and the world; I think the farthest visitor came from Taiwan.

The convention center was huge, although you would never have guessed that there were that many people there. There were so many different meeting rooms, and the exhibit hall was so large anyone could get lost in there. There were rows upon rows of vendors with all kinds of different ways to get attendees to stop and chat with them.

In the video below, you can see our exciting new booth that was designed and used for the first time at this show. The idea behind it was to create something that was easier and lighter to ship, as well as easier to put up. This took only a matter of a few minutes to get set up, which gives us more time to interact with our visitors.

The host for this years ISTE 2011 show was Philadelphia, PA. What a great city to visit with its rich history, vibrant shopping districts, great restaurants, and of course I won’t forget the Philly Cheese Steaks. Yes, we did have some spare time (our set-up was so quick) to head out and see some of the sites. We visited Independence Hall where the Declaration of Independence was signed as well as the Liberty Bell (through the glass, the line was about a mile long) and of course we had to eat some Philly Cheese Steaks. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience than ISTE 2011!

Here is a small image gallery of some of the pictures we took while we were there.
