Don't take our word for it, hear what other Educators have said about their KIDDO conference experiences:

“I just loved, loved, loved it! I’ll be recommending the KIDDO conference for sure”

“After having worked in both the education and sports industries for a number of years, it’s become increasingly rare to attend a conference in either industry that evokes the positive feelings I’ve experienced.”

“A fantastic day full of engaging professionals - thank you”

“I’ve really learned how important physical literacy is for long term outcomes for students, and how much FUN phys ed can be without making it hard to teach”
