Sponsorship and Exhibiting Opportunities

The National Federation of the Blind 2022 National Convention offers a variety of opportunities for organizations to demonstrate support for the blind community, increase brand awareness, showcase products and services, and connect with consumers. As the largest gathering of blind people in the world, our convention provides direct marketing opportunities and access to thousands of blind people, their families, and blind professionals that you will not find anywhere else.

This year, sponsors and exhibitors will connect with the blind community both virtually and face-to-face. If you have any questions or would like to receive convention-related email updates, please contact Anna Adler at 410-659-9314, extension 2282 or [email protected].
