The Minnesota Rural Health Conference offers exhibitors multiple opportunities to meet conference participants. Two networking lunches, four breaks and an exhibitor “passport” with prize drawings will encourage participants to visit the Exhibit Hall. The Exhibit Hall at the Duluth Entertainment and Convention Center (DECC) is conveniently located next to the conference registration area and breakout session rooms. 

All exhibit booth representatives must register for the conference. Non-registered exhibit booth staff will not be allowed into the hall.

Exhibitor space will be reserved in the order payment is received. Online payment is strongly recommended for the best chance to secure your booth. Offline payments are available, but space will not be reserved until the mailed check is received or until a PO number has been sent. If payment is not received within 10 business days, the exhibitor booth will be re-opened and you will be moved to the waiting list.

Exhibit space is limited to one booth per organization.

General Exhibit Space is Sold Out

General exhibit space is sold out, but it's still possible to secure a booth by committing to a platinum sponsorship. If space becomes available, organizations on the Exhibit Waiting List will be contacted in the order they appear on the list.
