Since Texas has a reputation for bigness, it is not surprising that the Lone Star State's Conference for the Advancement of Science Teaching (CAST) is widely regarded as the largest and best regional science teachers meeting in the United States. 6600 science teachers attended our 2013 conference in Houston, and we expect even bigger numbers at CAST-2014 in Dallas.
Companies who do business in the science education field are well acquainted with the large potential of the Texas market, and many have come to depend on a CAST exhibit as an essential part of their marketing strategy. As an indication of this fact, even in a tough economic climate, our 2013 exhibition had 270 companies and organizations occupying 410 booths.
If you want to do business with Texas science teachers, you should give serious consideration to exhibiting at CAST. There is simply no more efficient way to get your message to the science educators of Texas.
If you have never exhibited at CAST, talk to your friends who have attended this conference, and we believe that their testimony will motivate you to put CAST on your exhibit schedule.

6,000+ Science Teachers
CAST returns to Dallas where we had more than 6,000 teachers in attendance three years ago, so we expect another large crowd. CAST-2014 planners are preparing another great program for our science teachers, approximately evenly divided among the primary, middle and high school levels.
Teachers attending CAST are enthusiastic and hungry for new ideas. Exhibitors frequently comment about the positive attitude that pervades the CAST exhibition and makes this show such a huge success.

This privilege is limited to companies exhibiting at CAST.
A workshop proposal form must be submitted, and the inclusion of the workshop in the CAST program is at the discretion of the Workshop Proposal Evaluation Committee that judges for quality and content. Evaluation is based on a well-defined rubric in order to ensure that the best workshops will be made available to our teachers.
Proposals are submitted online. The workshop proposal site is typically activated in early March. Exhibitors will receive email notification when the site goes live. The window for submitting workshop proposals extends from March to early May.
