Exhibitor & Sponsorship Opportunities

In May, Minnesota HomeCare Association (MHCA) will celebrate its 49th Annual Meeting. Agency staff from around the state will convene in Duluth for education, networking, and fun!

The Annual Meeting, MHCA’s most popular event of the year, will feature multiple concurrent sessions, a keynote speaker, state and federal updates, a recognition program, and sponsored social events. The event has always been a great value for companies wanting to make an impact with Minnesota home care providers, and this year's event will continue to provide that value!

Expo time will be condensed into one day in 2019 to give exhibitors more focused time with attendees. We will have interactive games, prizes, and more to get attendees mingling with you!

Come and introduce our members to your products and services. Attendees are looking to increase their knowledge on new strategies and products. Join us and showcase your product or service!

WHO'S ATTENDING?

Approximately 250 home health professionals who have management responsibility will be present, such as home care leaders, managers and supervisors, clinical service directors, and direct-care staff.

  • Exhibit booth to showcase product/service and promotional materials

  • Two complimentary exhibit booth representatives (includes meals during expo hours)
  • Exhibit listing in final program

  • All exhibitor registrations allow you to attend all educational sessions. This means you get to attend the opening and closing events, as well as choose from dozens of educational session and general sessions alongside attendees. Ticketed events are not included but can be added to your registration for a nominal fee. We believe the easiest way to get the most out of your exhibiting experience is to interact and network with attendees all day, every day of the conference!

The Fine Print

Expo Layout and Format

This conference will provide you with opportunities to network with the attendees during expo hours, over lunch, during breaks, and during the evening social event.

Display Restrictions

All display items must be within the confines of the booth – no banners/counters/etc. on the floor and nothing in the aisle without prior approval by show coordinator. Absolutely no glitter or confetti allowed (violators will be assessed a $200 clean-up fee). No open flames allowed.

Your Exhibit Space

Booths are assigned based on sponsorship and the date payment is received in full. MHCA does not assume responsibility for location of exhibit space selected or its proximity to any other exhibitors. Booths may not be shared with other vendors.

Want to Add Additional Booth Reps or Change Names?

Booth fees include two complimentary booth representatives. Additional representatives will be charged $150. If you did not list the names of your representatives or need to change them, please contact the MHCA at 651-635-0783.

Event Cancellation and Refund Policy

Expo cancellations must be in writing and received by MHCA 60-days prior to the event. No refunds for cancellations made after the cancellation deadline (March 16, 2018) or for no-shows (exceptions will only be made to this policy, should we be sold out with a wait list and able to secure a replacement). Expo booths must be paid in full within 30-days of receipt of invoice. Sponsorships must be paid in full to be secure or promoted. Booths may not be shared with other vendors.

Event sponsorship is not refundable.

Additional Rules of Conduct – Suitcasing Policy

Exhibitors will not distribute souvenirs or coupons outside of the exhibitor’s paid-for display space, post signs or other advertising displays elsewhere in the conference center, or sponsor any event that conflicts with the expo. Any distribution of sales materials or business cards or the attempt to solicit business from exhibitors or show visitors by non-exhibiting companies is a form of criminal trespass and strictly prohibited; violators will be removed by security. Please report any such activity to MHCA staff – violators are unfairly and unethically taking business and attention away from you, the paying participant. Exhibitors are discouraged from entering drawings for other exhibitors’ show prizes.
