Become a NCC19 Sponsor or Exhibitor

Shirley, who cared for her daughter, and Lisa, who cared for her mother, shared their experiences as NCC18 presenters.

More than 40 million individuals care for a family member in the United States. And, it’s not easy. Family caregivers rate their stress as 4.16 on a scale of 1 to 5, with 5 being the most stressed. Family caregivers need products and services that help. They need answers.

Be part of the solution. Join us as a sponsor or exhibitor at the Fourth Annual National Caregiving Conference. Our conference will bring 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.

This year’s conference theme is Our Best Selves. During a time that feels like the worst, how do we stay our best in our relationships, with our health, in our faith, with our finances, in our careers and during caregiving? We’ll look at how caregiving impacts us and how we can best manage that impact.

This year’s conference includes:

  • A full two-day agenda on November 8 and 9 with additional sessions and training workshops on November 7 and 10.
  • Exhibitor hours on Friday and Saturday
  • A conference app available to both in-person and virtual attendees

Our conference will take place at Chicago Marriott O’Hare, 8535 West Higgins Road., Chicago. We hope to have 300 individuals attend our conference in person and another 200 watch the conference virtually.

The Experience

Attendees to our third conference in 2018 share their experiences:

  • It was great to interact with others who understand my circumstances.
  • It was a warm experience. Lots of opportunities for networking and for gaining great information.
  • Great Conference, hope I can put at least 1/3 of what I learned to practice.
  • The rich content and variety of topics was amazing. I also enjoyed hearing the various perspectives from the panelists.
  • I really appreciate the variety of topics in the sessions – from technology to relaxation, self-care to running a business. All sessions were beneficial.
  • Exceptional conference and location
  • I have been to many continuing education events in my 30+ years as a Dental Hygienist and the Caregiving Conference was hands-down the BEST experience I have ever had. Each presenter was excellent and well versed in their various topics. I wish each session was longer, due to the ample information to cover. The small groups were a great way to have personal discussions and share helpful tips and experiences.
  • I look forward to using my new knowledge and plan to come back next year.
  • Inspirational event.
  • This was my first conference & I attended all day Friday and Saturday. All speakers were excellent. I learned a lot & purchased several books.
  • It was amazing. I had lost the last person/my mother in close proximity to the conference. While I wasn’t sure if it made sense to attend the conference, it ended up being a very helpful and healing process to do so. Thank you Denise and everyone I encountered over the two days. You helped.
  • WOW! How jammed packed full of awesome sessions this was. I wish I had at least 2 more days there to be able to take it all in. There was so much to learn! I felt like I was back in high school changing classes again and it felt wonderful. I met so many incredible people/caregivers. I shared like I’ve never shared before. Thank you, Denise, for helping make this possible!!! I look forward to next year.
  • Felt welcomed and supported. Thank you!
  • It was my first and I was honored to be there.
  • Fantastic to be together. Important to define ourselves individually as “caregiver” and significantly as a group. Loved seeing all the initiatives. More clear than ever this is a very defined niche market. Excited at next steps. 2018 Conference = “number three’s the charm” 🙂 Looking forward to next steps and seeing assured growth.
  • Absolutely excellent presentations and networking opportunities
  • Made new, meaningful friendships.
  • It was a very worthwhile Conference, there was an awful lot covered, I will try to go again next year.
  • It was an amazing experience to connect with warm, compassionate caregivers and to hear their stories. It was unlike any conference I have ever attended.
  • The conference was WONDERFUL!
  • Very well done. great learning and wonderful connections. Thank you.
  • I thought the speakers were great and the facilities and food were too.
  • It was a wonderful conference.
  • Wonderful event! Great range of session topics. Speakers were thoughtful and very gracious in sharing tips and personal experiences.
  • A truly amazing and inspirational event, felt so much love and warmth from so many people. Thank you Denise.
  • I think the conference just keeps getting better and better. It is nice to rub shoulders with other caregivers and to hear their stories. Great selection of vendors.
  • I watched it virtually and I am hoping to be there in person next year to hear more presentations. It was very informational and hearing other caregivers stories including some tips and tricks will help current and future caregivers.
  • I felt welcomed! Appreciated! Most exhausting week/weekend that I loved!!
  • This was a phenomenal conference! All of the speakers were informative and engaged. I learned a lot and connected with many wonderful caregivers. Everything was very well organized.
  • No sales pitches. No nasty or selfish people. Highly supportive conference culture all three days.
  • I thoroughly enjoyed myself at the conference. This was the first time I attended. It was an awesome, inspiring, motivating event.
  • It is always comforting to be surrounded by people who are in a similar situation. I found that to be true at this conference, with friendly, accepting people everywhere. Most of the sessions were helpful and I will be sharing a lot of good stuff with the care partners I help.
  • Amazing, awesome, fulfilling, engaging!
  • Very informative and inspiring. I learned a great deal.
  • It just keeps getting better and better every year!
