Event Policies

Policy on exhibiting

The Association of Health Care Journalists and the Center for Excellence in Health Care Journalism seek to minimize the possibility and appearance of inappropriate influence, and so have imposed limitations on their sources of funding. This includes the types of organizations allowed to exhibit. To see if you qualify to exhibit, please see our fundraising policy.

We will be accepting a limited number of exhibitor applications from not-for-profit associations or societies that represent those who sell health care services or who lobby legislators on health care issues. If you feel you fall into Category C, please send an email to cunninghamsu@missouri.edu with information about your organization and what services you’d like to highlight at the conference. Your request will be submitted to a committee for approval either in January or February. There are limited spots available for Category C exhibitors.

Policy on sponsorship

This policy also applies to conference sponsors. Sponsorship comes with exhibitor privileges. We provide appropriate recognition through our marketing efforts before and during the conference. The earlier you become a sponsor, the more bang you’ll get for your buck. Each year, the generosity of our sponsors is what makes our conference such a tremendous success. Should you have questions regarding this year’s sponsorship levels or if you’d like to discuss sponsorship possibilities, please send an email to bruzzesel@missouri.edu.
