Establish relationships and connect with potential clients and partners by hosting a Lunch & Learn (L&L) session! L&L sessions offer a casual alternative to formal training and seminars. These sessions allow you to educate people on a topic relevant to them, while highlighting the value of or product or organization. Topic of L&L session is subject to approval by CARD.

Lunch & Learn sessions are open to all registered CARD participants. CARD will provide the sponsor with a theatre style set room with a laptop and AV equipment. Lunch & Learns will be held on Saturday, January 13, 2018. L&L sessions will be advertised in the official conference program and event website. Sponsors are responsible for providing their own PPT presentation and handouts/tangibles if applicable.

Contact Me Table (Included with sponsorship packages only)

It is our goal to maximize your visibility at our event. This year, we have created the 25th Silver Anniversary Contact Me Table especially for you! The Contact Me Table (CMT) will hold an 8.5” x 11” sign of your organization with a brief description of what you do. Each sign will have a signup sheet for attendees to place their name and contact information. At the end of the conference we will forward you the list or if you are there you can take it with you. Due to limited space and many anniversary activities for our 2018 event, individual exhibitor tables will not be available.
