Sponsor and Exhibitor Information

We invite your company to be a partner and exhibit your products and services at our 2023 Heartland Foot and Ankle Conference

Sponsorships present a great opportunity to get exclusive access to practicing DPMs from across the Midwest. Participating as a sponsor and/or exhibitor will allow you to reconnect with foot and ankle physicians with whom you currently work and build new relationships with DPMs, residents, students, nurses, and assistants.

The Exhibit Hall will be open all day on Thursday, October 5th, and through lunch on Friday, October 6th. We will also be holding an exhibit hall reception for all attendees and exhibitors during the afternoon on Thursday, October 5th. 

Check out our 2023 Brochure for information on the sponsorship and exhibitor levels for our 2023 Conference. 

The easiest way to register is through our online registration form. Alternatively, you can fill out a PDF version of the registration form from the brochure linked above and return it with your payment at your earliest convenience. If needed, we can work with you to complete any grant application requirements that your company may have.

Please reach out to Randi Malone (515-282-8192 x412) if you have any questions. We want to make sure that we provide you with opportunities that best match your marketing needs, so if you have additional sponsorship proposals or ideas, please let us know.
