Exhibitor Registration


Thank you for considering our event.  

The MN APRN Coalition is a non-profit organization and the largest and fastest growing organization of Advanced Practice Nurses in Minnesota. The mission of our organization is to remove barriers and increase patient access to APRNs in Minnesota. Our members include all four roles of APRNs – Nurse Practitioners, Clinical Nurse Specialists, Nurse Midwives and Nurse Anesthetists.  Attendees are from both primary care and specialty practices in both urban and rural Minnesota.  

This conference will be held on Friday and Saturday, April 26 and 27, 2019 at the Best Western Nicollet Inn in Burnsville, MN.  During this event, there will be over 2 hours of scheduled breaks providing opportunities for vendors and participants to network and interact with attendees.  

Feedback from vendors last year was overwhelmingly positive with numerous comments on how engaged our attendees were with all our exhibitors. To encourage vendor interaction, we will distribute “vendor bingo cards” to attendees and those who obtain signatures from each vendor will be eligible to win door prizes.

Our speakers are all experts in their fields and we will feature at least one nationally known speaker. Our first conference last year was a success with tickets selling out 3 weeks before the event!  This year we have increased our attendee capacity to 200 and will be sending invitations to over 8000 APRNs.
