The AACN conference represents a great marketing and sales opportunity for your organization. The conference offers high-quality workshop content, a concentrated scientific program, and multiple opportunities for vendors to interact closely with conference attendees. The focus of the program is Excellence in Clinical Practice. Our attendees are comprised of a broad range of students, newly boarded and seasoned scientist-practitioners at the highest level of professional practice – committed to remaining current with respect to the research literature, new practice tools, and the latest updates to test instruments, scholarly books and texts, and technological advances with clinical application. Indeed, these clinicians represent a uniquely concentrated selection of highly qualified present and future authors, test developers, and researchers.

Our sponsors and exhibitors are important to us, and we make every effort for your participation in our program to be rewarding to you. We offer several different options for you to reach our attendees through exhibits, sponsorship of receptions, coffee breaks, program ads and flyers. Best of all, our exhibitors are centrally located in the heart of the conference to maximize face to face contact with conference attendees.

We appreciate your interest and hope to see you at the AACN in June!
