Our attendees come from all areas of education including K-12 and post-secondary, with the largest portion coming from K-12 backgrounds. We also draw visitors from as far away as Florida and California, but our main audience is local to Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio and Illinois, due to our convenient location within 3 hours of Nashville, St. Louis, Indianapolis, and Louisville.
