Expo FAQs and Details

What is an expo?

An Expo is a regional event that aims at educating the public, sharing innovation, promoting progress and fostering cooperation. It is organized by a host organization that invites other businesses, companies, organizations, the private sector, the civil society and the general public to participate.

Homeschooling… is  that even legal?

That is a common question for those who have taken on the task of meeting their children’s educational needs at home. Yes, it is not only legal, but a viable alternative to public and private school. Texas does have some laws and codes that specifically addresses home education and those considering it should examine those and be informed as they choose this alternative. At the SETX Homeschool Expo you will find more information about how to homeschool in Texas. 

Can I bring my children to the expo? Are there workshops for them?

Because of space limitations, the expo will not provide workshops for students of any age. We ask that you consider how well your child will be able to cooperate within the confinement of the exhibit hall and/or workshop. Children must be attended to at all times. Registration for all programs will be on a first-come, first-served basis and will be available as space allows.

What is your refund policy?

We do not offer refunds.  You may transfer your registration to one other person or family by emailing expo coordinators at setxhomeschoolexpo@gmail.com   with the name of person admission is being transferred to along with the name and date of the original purchased admission. After July 8, no registrations may be transferred. 

Should I register for each workshop I attend?

Workshops are first come, first seated. Some Workshops will fill up, so make sure to plan ahead for the best seating! You may need to arrive 15 minutes before workshops. 

Fussy or crying babies or children are required to be immediately removed from any speaking session or from the Exhibit Hall. If a child is disruptive, the parent is expected to and may be asked to leave the Workshop/Exhibit Hall to ensure that everyone is able to enjoy the Expo.

Children ages 14 and under must be accompanied at all times by one of their own parents, and parents assume all responsibility for their children and their behavior.

Can I bring my infant/toddler?

We encourage parents to make other arrangements for toddlers during the Expo if possible; however, infants and toddlers along with other children may attend free of charge with their parents. In workshops, please do not occupy an additional seat with your infant/toddler seat if the seating is insufficient to allow other attendees a seat. 

Is there a room reserved for nursing mothers?

For your convenience and privacy, a Nursing Mothers’ Room will be located on the Upper Level. Nursing mothers are encouraged to be discreet or take advantage of the unstaffed Nursing Mothers’ room.

Are the workshops schedules posted?

A workshop schedule will be posted on this site as soon as available. Listed speakers and exhibitors are confirmed, but there may always arise circumstances which could prevent a speaker/exhibitor from attending. Schedules are subject to change.

May I bring a stroller?

Strollers and rolling shopping carts are welcome in the Exhibit Hall. Due to fire codes, strollers are not allowed in workshops; however, stroller parking is available. If you feel you have a special circumstance concerning a stroller, you may email setxhomeschoolexpo@gmail.com to explain your situation and to request a special exception.

May I volunteer to help at the Expo?
