NAMI invites you to exhibit at our 2011 National Convention, scheduled for July 6 – July 9 at the beautiful Chicago Hilton in Chicago, IL.
The NAMI National Convention is the annual gathering of some 2,500 mental health activists and advocates from all over the U.S. and several foreign countries. Our attendees include:
All our attendees have one overarching reason for attending the NAMI National Convention: improving the lives of people who live with mental illnesses and the lives of the people who love and care for them. Our attendees are responsible for securing or recommending mental health services, products, and information for themselves, loved ones, clients, and patients diagnosed with serious mental illnesses. They are eager for the latest information, treatment options, coping strategies, support services, health and wellness information and activities, and legal and financial advice.

Booth rental fee includes TWO Exhibit Hall passes for each 8’ x 10’ space – giving your booth staff full access to the highly informative sessions offered at our convention. Additional staff may attend for just $75.00 each. (Meal functions NOT included.)
Each booth comes equipped with a 8’ back wall, two 3’ side walls, and a 7” x 44” identification sign.
Tables, chairs, electricity, and other booth furnishings are available at additional cost from our official decorating company.
Please note that the Exhibit Hall at the Chicago Hilton is carpeted.
NAMI will print a 50-word description of your product or service in the final program for the convention AT NO EXTRA CHARGE! (Copy must be received by April 15th.)
Space will be assigned after a completed contract and a 50% deposit have been received.
Space CANNOT be reserved by telephone and no space will be held without a deposit.
Space assignment is based on several factors, including exhibitor preferences, size of space requested, date contract and deposit are received, past participation, exhibitor type grouping and special requirements.
NAMI reserves the right to make adjustments to the floor plan and the exhibit hall, including the hours the hall is open, to meet the needs of its exhibitors and its attendees. NAMI also reserves the right to refuse exhibit space to any vendor or organization at its own discretion.
