Business Partner Information

Registration for Business Partners includes attendance for two company representatives.  Additional company representatives may attend for an additional fee.  Please check out the registration form for details and pricing.

In addition, Business Partners may maximize their networking opportunities by exhibiting on a “table top” in our Business Partner hallway just outside the educational classrooms on Saturday of the event.  Business Partners will share an 8 foot table with another exhibitor.  Tables are right outside of the classrooms so there are truly no bad display spots.  Please note that electricity is NOT available with the table top displays, so please plan your displays accordingly.  Exhibit spaces are first come – first served on the day of the event.

The Virginia Leadership Retreat Committee is ready to assist you with any questions you might have about the event.  Please email us at [email protected]
