Why Should You Exhibit at the MPA Annual Convention?
The Michigan Pharmacists Association (MPA) Annual Convention & Exposition promotes the professional development of pharmacists through educational sessions, identification of resources, networking and social events. The Convention provides a forum to meet the pharmacy professionals who purchase the products and secure the services your organization supplies. The 2016 Convention attracted more than 1,300 attendees. Here's a few reasons why:
- showcase new products
- network with pharmacy professionals
- build brand awareness of your company’s products and services
- establish and develop relationships with new customers
- maintain and strengthen existing client relationships
When you reach MPA members, you also reach the pharmacies, hospitals, long-term care facilities and universities where they are employed and the people they work with every day!
What Activities Typically Occur in the Exhibit Hall?
- entertainment to create a more inviting atmosphere and entice people to stop in (for example, in 2016 we had a local institute provide complimentary massages)
- cash bar and pizza buffet
- game stations and photo booth
