April 27 2021
Every year, HealthMerch sponsors and exhibits at 20+ healthcare conferences across the country. Our goal with exhibiting is to meet clients face to face and learn first hand the advancements and challenges that our clients are encountering. It also allows us to provide our own talent to support the event through custom conference kits.
In 2020, we had the opportunity to attend one conference before most conferences went virtual. However, HealthMerch was able to continue attending virtual conferences to stay up-to-date with the latest information on community health matters and we had the great fortune of connecting with so many of our existing clients and meeting new professionals in the field as well.
In 2021, we have a growing list of conferences that we’re attending both virtually and in-person once spaces open up in the Fall. We’d love to hear from you if you’re attending any of these conferences or if you have suggestions on what conferences HealthMerch should support next!
