A Message from MHCA

The Minnesota HomeCare Association is proud to serve the home care community. Now more than ever.

The well-being of our members and sponsors is of the utmost importance to MHCA. With your safety and the recommended social distancing top of mind, we are postponing our 50th Annual Meeting and Expo. The event will now be held November 16-17 at the Earle Brown Heritage Center. Your exhibit/sponsorship will automatically be transferred to this new date.

We are working on the new expo schedule and will have it ready to go soon. Your company name will remain on the Annual Meeting webpage as we transition to the new date.

 

Exhibitor & Sponsorship Opportunities

Now in November, Minnesota HomeCare Association (MHCA) will celebrate its 50th Annual Meeting. Agency staff from around the state will convene in the Metro Area for education, networking, and fun!

The Annual Meeting, MHCA’s most popular event of the year, will feature multiple concurrent sessions, keynote speakers, 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!

We invite you to purchase drink tickets to give out to attendees for the cocktail hour immediately preceding our 50th Anniversary Celebration Dinner!

Attendees are looking to increase their knowledge on new strategies and products. Join us and showcase what you have to offer!

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.

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

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.

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 MHCA at 651-659-1451.

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 (October 16, 2020) 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.
