We expect about 150 companies to attend. There will be 35075 to 400 attendees. We will have approximately 80 to 85 exhibitors representing a broad range of products.

What happens at the convention?

The convention provides three areas of opportunity. Each morning, speakers and education sessions provide industry information and new ideas to help members manage their business. During the afternoons, business is conducted during the exhibit hall hours with many vendors displaying new products.  We purposefully plan various networking opportunities in a variety of social settings to enhance business relationships.
