How long are these events?
Online Events are about twenty minutes, then there’s the Q&A time that lasts as long as you have questions. Materials Displays are set up for around four hours; when you put in your ZIP Code to find an event, you’ll see the hours and locations for displays near you. You can arrive when it’s convenient and come and go as you please.
Convention lengths vary, but they typically last 1–3 days.
Do I need to bring anything with me?
It’s helpful if you can bring
- a list of questions,
- a list of what you’re looking for (e.g., math and science grade 7, literature grade 12),
- a list of materials you want to see, and
- a list of materials you know you want to buy. (The quickest way to put it together is to use the shopping list at the back of your Abeka catalog or the Quick Order option at abeka.com.)
Tip: For the fastest checkout, we recommend bringing a check, credit card, or debit card.
If you’re active or retired military, bring your military ID to Materials Displays & conventions so you can show it & get your 5% discount.
How much do events cost?
Materials Displays and Online Events are free! Admission to homeschool conventions generally ranges from $40 to $135. Register early if you can, since many conventions charge more at the door.
Can I attend more than one event?
Sure! You’re welcome at any Online Event or Materials Display.
Can I bring my kids?
Definitely. We’ll have a coloring book and crayons for the little ones at Materials Displays.
What if I have follow-up questions?
Your rep would love to answer them! He can give you his information at the event you attend, or you’ll see it when you put in your ZIP Code to find an event.
Do I need to register?
You won’t need to register for Materials Displays, since they’re drop-in. Online Events are free but require a quick registration. Homeschool conventions vary in cost and also require registration.
Can I pick up my materials that day?
Because of limited space at displays and conventions, your materials won’t be able to go home with you that day. Any order will be shipped to you free.
