THE SKY’S THE LIMIT: TRANSFORMING OUR FUTURE

2016 NATIONAL CONFERENCE

Dear PENS Partner,

The planning for our PENS 2016 National Conference in Denver, Colorado from May 12-15, 2016 is underway! We are making some changes for next year – the biggest change you will see is the PENS National Conference will begin on Thursday and end on Sunday. We had great feedback from the 2015 National Conference in Savannah thanks to the support of our many partners and we anticipate next year will be even better. We are pleased to have this pediatric endocrinology nursing conference available for not only novice, but experienced pediatric endocrine and diabetes nurses. We are requesting your support for this year to continue to make this conference a success. Please review the enclosed materials and main sponsorship opportunities available for the 2016 National Conference. We value your support of the PENS conference as it is a key factor to help us meet our mission of providing members with resources to advance pediatric endocrinology nursing, in order to meet the needs of the patient. If there are other sponsorship ideas for the PENS 2016 National Conference or opportunities throughout the year that you would like to discuss, please contact us directly so we can explore this further. If you have any questions or needs, please contact us at 913-895-4628 or by email at [email protected]. I am looking forward to working with you this coming year and having our members hear more about you throughout the upcoming conference in Denver.

Sincerely,

Maryann Johnson, BSN, RN PENS President

PENS offers several ways to increase your organization’s visibility to conference attendees. PENS National Conference support, advertising and exhibiting continue to be the best value for marketing opportunities in the industry. These opportunities are outlined here for your review. Using any or all of them will help better connect your company’s products or services to our meeting attendees.

CONFERENCE SUPPORT, EXHIBITING & ADVERTISING

Booth representatives are invited to participate in all food and beverage events held in the exhibit hall. Any exhibitor wishing to register for and attend the conference educational sessions will register through the registration process used by conference participants. Exhibitors paying conference registration fees will be awarded contact hours for educational sessions attended. Each booth also receives the PENS-discounted sleeping room rate (based on availability at the time of booking) and security during the hours the exhibit hall is not open. The exhibit space is an 10' × 10' area for you to display and/or demonstrate your company’s products and services. Pipe and drape will be provided.

13. Restrictions. Exhibit management reserves the right to restrict exhibits which are objectionable because of noise, glaring or flashing lights, method of operation, or any other reason, and also to prohibit or evict any exhibit which, in the opinion of exhibit management, may detract from the general character of the exhibit.

If the exhibitor fails to comply in any respect with the terms of this agreement, exhibit management shall have the right, without notice to the exhibitor, to offer said space to another exhibitor, or to use said space in any other manner. This shall not be construed as affecting the responsibility of the exhibitor to pay the full amount specified by the contract.

If the exhibitor’s materials fail to arrive, the exhibitor is nev-ertheless responsible for all amounts due hereunder. Exhibitors are advised to carry special insurance to cover exhibit material against damage and loss, and public liability insurance against injury to the person or property of others.

18. Cancellation or Termination of Exhibition. In the event that the premises where the exhibition is to be held shall, in the sole determination of exhibit manage-ment, become unfit or unavailable for occupancy, or shall be substantially inter-fered with, by reason of picketing, strike, embargo, injunction, act of war, act of God, fire or state of emergency declared by any government agency or by reason of any municipal, state or federal law or regulation or by reason of any other occurrence beyond the control of exhibit management, exhibit manage-ment may cancel or terminate the exhibition. In the event of such cancellation or termination, the exhibitor waives any and all claims the exhibitor might have against exhibit management for damages or expenses and agrees to accept in complete settlement and discharge of all claims against exhibit management the exhibitor’s prorated share of the total amount paid by all exhibitors less all costs and expenses incurred by exhibit management in connection with the exhibition, including a reserve for future claims and expenses in connection therewith. In case exhibit management shall for any reason determine to cancel or terminate the exhibition, the exhibitor waives all claims the exhibitor might have against exhibit management for damages or expenses and agrees to accept in complete satisfaction and discharge of all claims against exhibit management a refund of all amounts paid by the exhibitor to exhibit management in accordance with this agreement.
