Support the 2017 Conference Theme: Bridging Tradition and Transformation

MAFP will also promote the Daily Rounds Challenge to be held exclusively in the Expo Hall. MAFP will provide each exhibitor with materials to display at each booth depicting how MAFP and Family Medicine has transformed over the years. This may include photos of members, gadgets, former practices, pop culture, etc.

Each exhibitor is (also) to depict an interesting display within their booth of how their industry or company has transformed over the years and how that transformation has impacted Family Medicine.

The Daily Rounds is sure to encourage interesting and engaging conversations amongst all. This dual effort affords many opportunities to draw members to the Expo Hall and also provides a wide variety of topics for conversation.

Included with your table top exhibit booth is Expo Hall access for up to two company representatives. Additional badges for additional representatives may be purchased to provide the same access as the initial two registrants.
