We would love to have your company exhibit with us to network with family physicians and other mid-level providers. We typically have 50 attendees at this event.

Exhibits are open from 7 am – 2 pm on Saturday. Typically most exhibitors pack up and leave after Saturday’s session, but if you would like to stay and exhibit Sunday you are welcome to do so. Attendees are offered incentives to visit each exhibitor during the event. After getting their exhibit cards stamped, they are eligible to win great prizes, including trips and cash.
