2020 Promotional Opportunities



To PROTECT everyone involved with our Annual Conference, we have decided to cancel the in-person 2020 Annual Conference in Portland, Oregon. This decision was reached after a great deal of discussion and thought with our Portland partners and the Portland Community. The safety of our members and partners is paramount to us, and we would never put it at risk.

More details about this cancellation can be found on our Registration and Hotel pages. We've recently communicated with our current sponsors, exhibitors, and advertsers via email. If you did not a receive a communication from us, or are a new partner with inquiries, feel free to reach out to the below staff. Again, we ask your patience as we may not have all the answers at this point but hope to in the coming weeks.

Exhibit Hall: Contact Member Development Manager, Jamie Recio at or 610-708-3010
