Friday, May 22 (the AGM and wine & cheese reception in the evening) to Sunday, May 24, 2020
Providing high quality continuing education and practice-building opportunities for conference attendees has always been our priority, and as a non-profit organization, we do our best to keep registration costs as affordable as possible.
We anticipate showcasing more than 20 exhibitors and attracting approximately 150 foot care nurses from both Canada and the US. As a participant, you will have an opportunity to enjoy the presentations, and connect directly with those who use your products or information on a daily basis. Having suppliers of foot care products and information at the conference has always been a draw for our delegates. While phone calls and emails are a great way to communicate, face-to-face interaction is a welcome change!
Our goal is to offer exhibitors as much exposure time as possible; Exhibitor Hall will be open for business all day Saturday and Sunday. As an exhibitor, you will have an opportunity to introduce yourself and your brand to the delegates during opening remarks on Saturday morning.
You may also be interested in sponsoring a meal, nutritional break, wine and cheese reception or a session speaker. Industry Partners who choose this option can be assured that logos and sponsorship will be prominently displayed and highlighted.
Exhibitor spaces are limited, and will be booked on a first-come, first-served basis. If you are interested in supporting enhanced educational initiatives in nursing foot care, and wish to secure a booth, please complete the online registration form and submit the associated fees.
For an hour after the conference on Saturday, you’ll have an opportunity to highlight a product or service in 10-minute scheduled slots at your booth, to interested delegates.
