Digital e-EXHIBITS are a great way of networking, sharing your work, exchanging ideas with colleagues, and supporting CPEUs!  

  • GO VIRTUAL:

This year NWRD is 'virtual only' format. Turn your Exhibit into an online / digital version and share!

  • BE CREATIVE:

Instead of preparing a table display, create a 1-to-5-minute pre-recorded video or PowerPoint (PPT) loop slideshow or other digital work - be creative with your message! 

  • SHOW YOUR WORK:

At the Virtual Conference, you will have a dedicated virtual booth in the Virtual Expo area. Engage with attendees who visit your booth during breaks via chat and/or video chat. Present your pre-recorded video, slideshow, digital work, web links, and handouts at the Virtual Happy Hour Exhibit on Thursday evening. Share your work during the program, in-between live speaker presentations.

  • MAKE a LASTING IMPACT:

After the conference, your video, slideshow, handouts, links, and contact information will be posted on the NWRD website for attendees to view on-demand for 90 days post-conference.

Build new customer relationships, strengthen your brand, and grow your business!

Northwest Renal Dietitians (NWRD) would like to invite your company to participate in the NWRD Annual Conference. Exhibitors enhance the NWRD program and expand knowledge of renal dietitians by sharing new products and clinical data.

 

With in-person conference years, Exhibitors can usually plan on reaching approximately100 renal dietitians from Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, Alaska, and British Columbia. This year due to COVID-19, NWRD will be presented via webinar format only. This means attendance will likely be even greater! With 30 million Americans having chronic kidney disease, and nutrition therapy as a mainstay of their treatment, you can connect to an important part of the health care team who are able to influence medical care, as well as individual behavior.​
