Sponsorship Opportunities

We are SOLD OUT of exhibitor booth space! As of March 6, cannot take any additional exhibitors. Consider sponsoring a live webinar or on-demand session.

Sponsors are a huge part of our conference’s success, and our Exhibitor Expo is the premier opportunity for you to connect with over 3,000 of Minnesota’s health and human services workforce! This includes decision-makers, administrators, managers, and direct service staff who make referrals to clients and colleagues on placements, products, and services. Attendees represent public and private sectors, government, non-profit and for-profit agencies. 

Join us to promote your services, share resources, and network with other organizations!

Why Sponsor?

  • Spotlight your organization! Promote your services, products, and programs to thousands of health and human services professionals and students.

  • Build your network! Connect with the next generation of your organization's leaders, volunteers, donors, and customers.

  • Sponsor your way! Customize your package from a number of options to meet your needs and budget and provide a great return on your investment.

  • Support human services in Minnesota! As a conference sponsor, you demonstrate support of high-quality education for our health and human service professionals. Plus, all sponsor packages come with complimentary conference registration(s) so your staff can continue their learning and network with colleagues.

Full details of sponsor opportunities and policies are included in the Sponsorship Guide.
