The Marketplace

The Marketplace is the interactive center-stage at the Exchange, where attendees will have the opportunity to network with each other, learn about concrete social innovation offerings they can take back to campus, and purchase the latest social innovation books and resources.

The Marketplace will feature three sections for you to explore:


Exhibitors Hall

Learn about new and exciting social impact opportunities to bring to campus. Booths in the Exhibitors Hall will showcase about opportunities (such as programs, tools, or methodologies) that are designed to support social change education initiatives.


Networking Lounge

Meet the people that make the Exchange great! The center space during the conference for participants to take a step back and connect with others at their own pace and/or participate in curated networking activities happening throughout the Exchange.


Resource Hub

Get (and give) the resources all social impact educators need! The Hub will feature social innovation resources available for sale and also crowd source insights and actionable best practices, such as “Your Best Icebreaker” that will be distributed to participants after the Exchange.


The Marketplace will be open on day one and day two of the Exchange, from 8:30am to 5:30pm.

Want to put your organization at the center of The Marketplace?

The Marketplace exhibitors will be able to showcase their programs, research and/or products to 750 of the most engaged and innovative higher education stakeholders working to advance social innovation opportunities on their campuses.
