Exhibitors have been an integral part of the IHD-AzTAP Evidence for Success Disability Conference since the very beginning. Although, for health and safety considerations, our 2022 conference will more limited than a few years ago, we are pleased to be bringing back an in-person exhibit hall this year designed to attract both full conference attendees and members of the community:
- For in-person conference attendees, our programming includes numerous unopposed Exhibit Hall times that encourage interaction and in-depth conversation between attendees and exhibitors. Our in-person attendees are also eligible to win raffle prizes donated by exhibitors and are incentivized to visit exhibitor tables through the use of fun activities (e.g. bingo cards).
- For members of the community, our conference is offering FREE EXHIBIT HALL PASSES for Monday afternoon, June 21, 1:30-5:00 pm only. We ask everyone who wants to visit the Exhibit Hall during that time to register for their free Exhibit Hall Passes in advance (by using the button above).
