Submissions are done on the form linked here during the window and require enough information for topic, content, learning objectives, speaker bio, and brochure description to meet CEU requirements. Proposals are reviewed and scored by our Speakers Committee. Those submitting presentations selected will be contacted to confirm arrangements such as date and time slot on the preliminary schedule.

2023 Exhibitor and Sponsor Registration – Available Soon!

Our Sponsor and Exhibitor team will be reaching out to our past and prospective colleagues. Exhibitors can set up either one or two days in our exhibits area, which will afford more time for attendees to meet, chat and learn about the new products, applications and services.
