Sponsors 2018

Podstock would not be possible without the generous support of our conference sponsors. We appreciate all they do to help create an awesome learning environment!

You’ll find easy access to all the sponsors on Wednesday in Keen Kutter A. The drinks, snacks, and brownies will also be in Keen Kutter A. It’s a win / win! So grab a Pepsi and stop by to chat with the folks from all of our great sponsors. Their job is to help you do yours – be sure to find out what they have to offer.

They’re also responsible for Thursday’s awesome Vendor Reception. We couldn’t do it without them!
