Tips for your prESENTATION
Content is king – If you really want to impress the audience, pack your presentation with powerful content.
Make it compelling – Our audience is composed of administrators, support staff, clinicians, direct caregivers, and industry partners. Learning levels are diverse, with the majority of participants being high level/theoretical to mid-level/practical.
Be authentic and vulnerable – Don’t be afraid to speak of failure as well as success.
Customize – Be sure your content truly speaks to the association audience and is customized to their unique situations.
Knowledge sharing is the most effective marketing – Sales pitches disguised as education will result in poor ratings and lost opportunities.
NOTE: Presentations must be educational. We understand that some of our speakers wish to network with attendees and showcase their services, but we kindly ask that your presentation not be a sales pitch. Networking time will be made available to speakers, sponsors, and attendees for this purpose. We appreciate your cooperation.
Watch your e-mail for online and in person networking opportunities throughout 2020
Due to concerns of the coronavirus (COVID-19), and in accordance with health guidance from the CDC, WHO, and other state and federal health authorities, we have decided to cancel the New England Home Care & Hospice Conference and Trade Show scheduled for May 13-15 in Newport, Rhode Island. It is increasingly clear that although we hope and pray for the situation to improve by mid-May, we cannot guarantee the health and safety of attendees, resort employees, local residents or our staff.

Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for immediate concerns.
