2023 Thrive! Sponsorships

Thrive! The NCHE Homeschool Conference will be held May 25-27, 2023 at the Benton Convention Center in Winston-Salem, NC. This is our 39th conference. We have such a faithful and eager group of homeschool families who are looking for the help and resources they need to homeschool with confidence and joy. At our last pre-COVID conference in 2019, we had over 6,000 attendees (2,000 families). In 2021 due to COVID, our attendance was 3739 attendees (1224 families). In 2022, attendance was 4347 (1460 families). We expect for attendance to continue to grow in 2023 to be around 5,000 (around 1700 families)—homeschool parents, teens and children. These families will come from across the state of North Carolina as well as neighboring states.

The conference always generates a high level of energy and enthusiasm among conference attendees. The NCHE conference is a highlight of NC homeschoolers’ year. This is a wonderful opportunity to get your products and services in front of an attentive, well-targeted audience. We will sell these individually on a first-come first-serve basis, so act quickly. You can also purchase an advertisement in the Thrive! Conference program here.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email or call me.
