SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES

Do you find it difficult to get in front of PT's who could benefit from your product or service? NOW IS YOUR CHANCE!

As you know, many therapists do not get a chance to meet with sales representatives during clinic hours. This conference, for many therapists, is their only chance to review new equipment, services and products in the PT field. By sponsoring this event, your organization has a unique opportunity to get in front of these individuals. We hope you’ll choose to be a sponsor/exhibitor this spring!
