Denise
Chicago Marriott O'HareJoin us in Chicago for the 1st Annual National Caregiving Conference, bringing together family caregivers, former family caregivers and individuals who work with family caregivers.

The goal of our conference is to connect attendees with support and solutions; empower attendees with insights and information; and entertain attendees with engaging and enlightening presentations. We also want to spark important conversations about what we need as family caregivers and former family caregivers in our communities, our workplaces and our health care system. The conference is hosted by Caregiving.com and The Center for Family Caregivers; both support family caregivers, former family caregivers and the individuals who work with them.

We also want attendees to take what they need from the conference, whether it be an opportunity to learn through our educational sessions, a chance to connect with others in a similar situation or an opportunity to learn about companies, like yours, which offer solutions. We will encourage attendees to plan a day that works for them. With that in mind, we are grateful for your flexibility to be available throughout the day to meet and interact with our attendees.

Our goal is to have 400 attendees at our first conference. We have contests and special events planned to help reach that goal. We also want those who cannot attend our conference to learn about your company. With that in mind, when you purchase a sponsorship or become an exhibitor, we'll add you to our online directory which will be part of our National Caregiving Conference Hub on Caregiving.com. With your purchase, you'll reach family caregivers in person during our conference and online through our Conference Hub.

Our conference will take place at Chicago Marriott O'Hare, 8535 West Higgins Road., Chicago.

Your sponsorship, participation in our exhibit floor and ad in our program guide help make our conference possible. Our sponsorship, exhibiting and advertising opportunities follow. You can reserve and pay for your sponsorship, exhibit space or ad at the very bottom of this page.
