Fall Conference Sponsorship Opportunities

Exhibitor at Product Showcase

Early bird $200 RDIA Member/$500 Non-Member; $250 RDIA Member/$600 Non-Member after August 15

Participate in the first RDIA Product Showcase. Your product will stand out at the RDIA trade show and you will enjoy a manageable and targeted audience. All buyers (primarily retailers and diaper services) will be invited to be viewers in this closed event. We require that those with products in the showcase refrain from entering the showcase room during the showcase period. This is to allow the retailers to browse products in a non pressure environment and is also meant to eliminate potential competitive issues between vendors. We thank you in advance for your cooperation. The Product Showcase will be open during non-session hours on Tuesday, September 27. Space is limited, so make your reservation soon.

Attendee Wireless Internet Access

Early bird $2,000; $2,500 after August 15
