The Bottom Line about the AARC Congress
This unique, comprehensive conference and exhibition is your opportunity to reach the most viable, progressive and forward thinking individuals in the respiratory care profession. There is no other convention that specifically targets this industry. So if you want name recognition in respiratory care, you must exhibit at this show. It is the single most cost-effective means by which to generate visibility and income-producing leads for your company.
Your Competition Will Be There
Can you afford not to be? What other venue gives you the opportunity to go head-to-head with your competition within this industry? Make connections with your competitors’ customers and show them what you can do. Congress positions your company at the center of this growing field.
Shorten the Selling Process with Quality Leads
More decision-makers make the AARC Congress a must-attend event than any other meeting in the industry. Acquire the best-qualified sales leads while you have access to buyers and key influencers. Attendees at this annual meeting are all here for respiratory care and are all interested in your products.
Make a Deal on the Exhibit Hall Floor
The AARC Congress is a “Buying Show,” which means you can sell your products and services right on the exhibit hall floor to knowledgeable decision makers delivered directly to you. Your booth becomes your place of business—it’s a good time to “make a deal.”
Connect with Industry Professionals
Everyone who’s anyone will be at the 53rd AARC International Respiratory Congress. With a three-day exhibit, you’ll have virtually unlimited opportunity to re-establish old contacts and generate new ones. Where else can you network with so many industry-specific professionals at one time? You’ll never have stronger exposure to the decision-makers and key influencers.
Show Your Stuff to People Who Matter
Demonstrate your latest products and services, adding the element of interactivity that connects the prospect to your feature. What better way to reach not only the decision-makers but the frontline therapists who influence purchasing decisions? You might even find your demonstration featured in a future issue of the AARC Times magazine!
Expand Your International Presence
For exhibitors with international aspirations, the AARC Congress captures that audience too. Our foreign registrations have been increasing every year, and last year we had representatives from more than 40 nations on hand. These international participants tell us they’ve been extremely pleased with their decision to attend, plan to return again, and would recommend the Congress to their colleagues. Nowhere else will you find such industry-specific global representation.
Identify Industry Trends
Since everyone in the industry attends the AARC International Respiratory Congress, trends from year to year become apparent. New products are not just introduced, but demonstrated, modeling the shape of things to come and giving you a chance to see if your company is keeping pace with your competitors. Where else can you track the future of the industry and make an immediate comparison of your company to theirs?
