The National Nurses in Business Association (NNBA) is pleased to invite you to be part of great marketing opportunities at the association’s 32st Annual Nurse Entrepreneurship & Career Alternatives Conference. The event will be held on September 8 – 10 in St. Pete Beach, Florida. The NNBA is the most recognized professional association for nurse entrepreneurs, nurse business owners and nurses in business. The audience for this annual conference is comprised of nurses and other healthcare professionals, typically 85% female ranging from age 35 to 65 and either self-employed or a business owner, or actively considering becoming self-employed or a future business owner. They are predominantly in the United States with growing global participation.

Examples of successful past exhibitors are:

  • Authors and publishers of information related to self-employed healthcare professionals
  • Companies offering support services and/or products for healthcare professionals in business
  • Education providers with offerings for self-employed healthcare professionals
  • Membership associations related to services provided by healthcare consultants
  • Insurance providers for healthcare consultants
  • Website designers, developers, and hosting services
  • Graphic designers

We encourage members, to consider placing a business card advertisement in the program. More importantly, we need your help in passing these opportunities – sponsorship, exhibitor and advertiser – on to vendors that you use. Our fundraising efforts help to keep the registration fees affordable and allow us to offer the best possible conference package to participants.
