Exhibitor Information

Greetings! We would like to invite you to participate in the MOAPA Annual Primary Care Update being held at the Hilton Branson Hotel and Convention Center from November 11-13. On Thursday the 12th, the conference will feature an exhibit hall where various companies can present their products and/or services to our attendees. The target audience for the conference includes over 125 physician assistants and any other healthcare providers of interest who wish to attend.

The exhibit hall space at the Hilton Convention Center is expansive, which allows us room for growth if necessary. We truly are humbled by the amount of support that we have received through the years from our Exhibitors. We could not run a successful conference without you. If this is your first time attending, welcome!

The exhibit hall will be open on Friday, July 10th. There are designated times for attendees to visit the exhibit hall, and those times can be found on the form entitled “Request for Exhibit Hall Display.”  We have various levels of sponsorship for the Exhibit Hall, and a list of those levels can be found on the form Contribution Levels and Exhibit Opportunities - 2020. All sponsorship levels are available on a first come, first serve basis. To reserve your booth space today, please return the form entitled “Display Fee Agreement” to Melanie Chisam, PA-C at one of the below communication methods.

Thank you for considering displaying at our conference. We would not be successful without our exhibitors, nor could we even host a conference. We appreciate your continued support of our profession, and we truly value the information that you bring to our attendees of this event. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact me by text, phone, or email, which are listed below. Committee Chair Meredith Cunningham and I look forward to seeing you in July!
