Information on Exhibiting at the NAMI Convention
NAMI invite you to exhibit at our 2009 National Convention, scheduled for July 6-9, at the San Francisco Hilton & Towers in San Francisco.
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 Convention - to improve 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, and support services.
NAMI members are fierce advocates for people with mental illnesses, and our attendees are looking for help with advocacy activities - especially in the areas of local, state, and federal legislation; housing, criminal justice, disability rights, parity, employment, and education - to name a few.
