2012 Convention & Exposition Vendor

If you have products or services that can help credit unions better serve their members, this is an event you must attend. There are several exciting opportunities for your company to have visibility with the decision makers from Missouri and Oklahoma. The 2012 Convention & Exposition will once again be held at Big Cedar Lodge in Ridgedale (near Branson), MO from October 2- 4.

Your registration this year includes multiple exhibit opportunities, convention signage, a fifty word description in our program, meals for two people in your booth, four drink tickets per event, as well as use of an audience response system, the BeLinker. The BeLinker will assure you that the contacts you are making are valuable, and you will easily be able to track who you spoke with during the Convention & Exposition.
