We're headed to four locations this fall! Every PTO Today Expo event attracts hundreds of active PTO and PTA decisionmakers who raise and spend money on behalf of their schools. No matter what business you’re in—fundraising, playground equipment, arts & enrichment programming, etc.—you can’t afford to miss this unique opportunity to network with engaged school parent group leaders who are actively looking to meet vendors like you.



“PTO Today Expo events have more focused attendance than other shows. Everyone that came to our booth was a potential client.”— Ryan Thompson, Mobile Ed Productions
