2020 APMA Annual Scientific Meeting Logo

Exhibitor registration for the APMA 2020 Annual Scientific Meeting (The National) is now open. The city often referred to as the Cradle of Liberty—Boston—will host The National at the Hynes Veterans Memorial Convention Center, July 23–26. The exhibit hall will be open July 23–25.

The National is one of the world’s largest gatherings for podiatric physicians and surgeons. It features scientific and practice management content encompassing virtually all aspects of foot and ankle care, and has become recognized as the podiatric medical profession’s premier event for continuing medical education.

Your participation as an exhibitor allows you to join the myriad of companies that showcase the latest technology, products, and services in the exhibit hall. You’ll interact face-to-face with an audience that has purchasing power, plus unparalleled authority and reach among patients.
