Exhibitor information

Exhibiting at the IPS is an excellent opportunity to reach a professional audience comprised of psychiatrists and other participants with backgrounds in many branches of the healing arts including psychology, social work, nursing, occupation therapy, and others.  The Institute attracts an unusually high percentage of psychiatrists in leadership positions at community mental health centers, state offices of mental health, university clinics and private group practices. Many such individuals play major roles in setting clinic, hospital, city or state pharmaceutical policies.  Many have significantly larger caseloads under their supervision or direct care.  Thus, the IPS provides a unique opportunity to educate leaders in mental health policy and care from around the country.

Partner Voices

Until recently, the opportunity to have a celebrity attend an event, attach themselves to a name-brand or endorse a certain product or idea was untouchable. The thought of paying a person to promote a product was seen as something only Fortune 500 companies could afford. Social media has changed all that with brands and businesses utilizing celebrity influencers to connect directly with their demographics and increase sales and profits.
