Trade Day is a program designed for educators, professors, graduate students, librarians, and retailers to get hands-on training, shared research, networking, and participate in professional development opportunities through a day of seminars, demonstrations, and events.
Trade Day is split between two focuses: retailers, and educators and librarians. The retailer focus is on business, marketing, and building community. The educators and librarian focus is on how to gamify your classroom/library, gaming strategies in curriculum, and building community. Anyone with a Trade Day badge can attend all events regardless of the focus; something can always be gleaned from a different perspective.
