WHY YOU SHOULD EXHIBIT AND SUPPORT THE TPS ANNUAL MEETING:

CONSIDER THESE 5 "F'S"

Financial sense
Exhibiting at the TPS Annual Meeting is one of the most cost-effective ways for your company to reach qualified audiences. According to a US study by Exhibit Surveys Inc., the average cost per visitor reached at a trade show is $166, while the average cost of a field sales call is $270. You do the math.

Face time
Meeting prospects and engaging face-to-face is also the fastest way to build relationships, strengthen current relationships, and build brand awareness.

Fresh faces
Spend one-on-one time with decision makers in pediatric clinics and hospitals all over Texas. According to a US Benchmark Survey by Exhibit Surveys Inc., 64% of attendees are not customers.

Fighting edge
Exhibiting at the TPS Annual Meeting offers your company another opportunity to stand out from the crowd. You can outshine the competition with well-trained staff, eye-catching stand design, and conscientious follow-up after the show.

FOMO (Fear of Missing Out)
Consider the long-term effect of not exhibiting at the TPS Annual Meeting. Being absent from the largest gathering of pediatricians in Texas instantly makes you a non-player in the field and puts your competitors on top in the minds of our members.

2021 Annual Meeting Highlights:
On September 9th TPS kicked off the 2021 Annual Meeting. Overall, 386 physicians, fellows, residents, medical students, allied health professionals, speakers, guests, and exhibitors registered to join us at the TPS Annual Meeting. We could not have accomplished the outstanding program without the tireless efforts of our speakers, moderators, Medical Education Committee members, including Co-Chairs Lara Johnson, MD and Maria Monge, MD, and the TPS Executive Board.



We look forward to seeing you ! For more information, please contact Crystal Healey, Director of Member Services, via e-mail or directly at (512) 370-1517.
