Visit the Trade Show to gain new knowledge, make new contacts and friends that could be beneficial to you and your facility long after the Conference is over.
Attendees looking for certification renewal, by participating in this well designed event - that meets the 3rd Millennium new requirements - will gain credit hours toward the renewal. Make sure you turn in the workshop evaluation form

The Conference offers not only terrific speakers and the best exhibitors around the state, but we tailored the conference to provide an open and collegial atmosphere to promote networking. There are also many raffles to spark the days with fun, the best food the Plaza Hotel could offer, and we have added live entertainment with magic and clean humor at dinner time!
