Why Exhibit?

As companies with rural roots and/or rural customers, exhibiting at NARMH's conference makes sense.

The theme for this year’s conference is: "Rural Resilience."

The preferred time for exhibitors to set up is on Friday, August 24, at 8:15 a.m. Exhibits should be closed down by noon on Sunday, August 26.


Exhibitor badges and information will be available at the registration table starting Friday, August 24, at 7:00 a.m.
