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 2018 Convention attracted more than 1,100 attendees. Here's a few reasons why you should exhibit at the MPA Annual Convention:

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!
