Sponsors and Exhibitors

The Developmental Disabilities Nurses Association (DDNA), the national association for nurses who provide care and services for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD), invites you to gain valuable exposure for your business or organization by exhibiting at our 23rd Annual Education Conference. It will be held Saturday, May 2 through Monday, May 4, 2015 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in downtown Atlanta, Georgia.

This conference brings together nurses from the United States and Canada who are on the front lines of clinical care for persons with I/DD. Our members observe and assess for healthcare problems, evaluate needs, and make recommendations for and/or prescribe products and services. Most influence purchase decisions at the national, state, local, and facility levels. Our conference attendees greatly value the opportunity to have face time with exhibitors and sponsors to learn about their products and services.

DDNA has both exhibitor and sponsor participation levels for businesses and organizations, and this year we are offering amazingly affordable exhibitor and sponsor fees. Our members are very interested in learning about products and services that benefit their nursing practice and the clients for whom they provide care and services. The exhibit area is directly outside the conference meeting space, and all attendees will be walking through the exhibit area throughout the day.

This year, we have a significantly upgraded the benefit package for conference sponsors . . . in fact, the dollar value of benefits for sponsors now exceeds the cost of the sponsorship! We want sponsors to have the opportunity to meet with our members in person at the conference, as well as have membership in DDNA. As a corporate DDNA member, you will be able to inform I/DD nurses about your products and services via our website’s online forums and make use of free advertising benefits on our website and in newsletters throughout the year after the conference.

Our official exhibit hours are ALL DAY on both Saturday and Sunday.  You are welcome to set up as early as 6:30 am and spend the entire day in the exhibit hall informing attendees about your products and/or services.  We also welcome you to join us at our dinner dance on Saturday evening.

Please see the attached exhibitor and sponsor forms. If have any questions, please feel free to call us at (800) 888-6733, 9-5 CT M-F. You may mail your completed form with payment to: DDNA, 1501 South Loop 288, Suite 104 – PMB 381, Denton, TX 76205.

Hope to see you in Atlanta!
