We are pleased to announce the 23rd Annual Conference of the New Jersey Chapter of the International Association of Rehabilitation Professionals (IARP). This event will once again be held at the Tropicana Hotel Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey from June 14th to the 16th.
Registration for this conference entitles you to 2 (two) Exhibit Representatives only. Additional staff must register for the event at a rate of $125. If a registered exhibitor must leave or another representative is slotted to take their place during the conference; you must present that individual to the registration desk prior to your departure or they will not be admitted to any scheduled events. If they have not registered for the conference, payment is due at that time; no admittance will be allowed without payment.
We are required to use a drayage company for set up and breakdown. However, you can bring your own display to the hall if you are so inclined. We will be using Vista Convention Services for drayage. They are the company that we used last year. If you need a late or early set up time, please let us know in advance.
Again, this year we will look to expand upon the number of attendees and give each exhibitor a free conference registration for one case management professional of their choice. You will receive an E-certificate to give out when we receive your vendor registration. Since we are looking to add new attendees to the mix, it is our wish that you use this free registration to attract new attendees, not to invite those who already know about IARP and our conference. A list of last years’ attendees is available on request.
Exhibit registrations will not be accepted without payment. The exhibit fee for the 3 days is $850.00. You can register and pay for exhibit space on line by going to www.theacconference.com.
If you would like to ship your display ahead of time, that can be done through Vista Convention Services. Please let me know if you are interested and I will forward you over the material handling forms. The President’s Reception begins at 6:00 p.m. on June 14th and will take place in the exhibit hall; no set up will be permitted after 5:00pm. In case of emergency, please contact Doug Cerminaro or Joseph Sabatini on the day of the conference.
Please note that beginning this year the Tropicana has instituted a $50.00 handling fee for materials transported to and from the Bell Services/Valet area to the Exhibit Hall. This fee will be collected by the Tropicana at the time of service.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call either of us directly; we look forward to seeing you again this year in Atlantic City and thank you for your continued support.
