NCKP 2011 Advertising, Exhibits, Showcases

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

The Frances Clark center is delighted to invite you to take advantage of promotional opportunities at The National Conference on Keyboard Pedagogy July 28-30, 2011. Meeting for the second time at the beautiful Westin Hotel in Lombard, Illinois, NCKP 2011 will celebrate 32 years since the founding of the original National Conference on Piano Pedagogy. Our primary goals are to enhance the quality of music-making throughout life and to educate teachers who are dedicated to nurturing lifelong involvement in music-making from the earliest to the most advanced levels.

Among the comments from participants who rated NCKP 2009 'the best conference ever' were the following:

This is an opportunity you can't afford to miss! More than 800 independent and institutionally-affiliated keyboard music educators will enjoy concerts, lectures, demonstrations, and workshops presented by leading artists, teachers, researchers, and musicians. Our audience is both focused and motivated.

NCKP offers daily exhibit hall-only hours in an attractive setting with 47 booths at $800 each. Exhibitors may also purchase showcases at $700 each. These 50-minute sessions when no other events are scheduled provide the opportunity for you to reach a highly targeted market. Since only 15 showcases will be available, it is urgent that we receive your reservation request by January 15, 2011.

Maximize your exposure by taking advantage of our other advertising opportunities. These include the program book that each participant will use minute-by-minute throughout the conference, and/or in our acclaimed journal Clavier Companion. Special opportunities also include underwriting concerts, receptions, or even a student's tuition.

Questions regarding advertising, exhibit booths, showcases or underwriting should be directed to me at

We can hardly wait to see you in Lombard.

Yours Truly,
