RCPA Conference Vision 2020

One week left! Deadline has been extended to Monday, August 31 for sponsors, exhibitors, and advertisers to be included in all digital conference materials.

Join RCPA as we host the virtual 2020 annual conference, Vision: 2020. With all things COVID, RCPA and the Conference Committee have revised the sponsorship and exhibitor opportunities. RCPA staff and the Conference Committee are excited to release this year’s Sponsors, Exhibitors, and Advertisers brochure. Please read through this alert as it highlights changes and opportunities.

Don’t miss your chance to be seen and to support the work of this dynamic organization! The event is a highlight for the Pennsylvania mental health, drug and alcohol, intellectual and developmental disabilities, children’s, brain injury, medical rehabilitation, and physical disabilities and aging provider communities. Complete information about exhibiting, sponsoring, and advertising options are available from the link above.

SOCIO Mobile App
RCPA is using the mobile app Socio this year. Socio has partnered with Zoom and other platforms to allow RCPA to host an engaging digital event. Socio has many gamification opportunities, ways in which to reach out to conference guests, and is the only way to attend the conference event. Using the mobile app will increase traffic to your virtual booth, extend exposure to your advertisement/logo, and increase your digital marketing footprint.

Exhibit with a Virtual Booth at Connections Hall
Exhibit activities will take place September 22–24 during the virtual event and will remain open in the mobile app for two weeks after the event. Connections Hall, formerly Exhibit Hall, will be open each day from 11:00 am – 6:00 pm. There are built-in event breaks, and through the gamification feature of the Socio mobile app, vendors are encouraged to give shout-outs and special codes to conference guests who visit. The more times people visit Connections Hall, the more they are entered into the grand prize drawing. Prizes will be announced prior to the event and during the event each day. A “Best of Show” competition provides even more prospects to engage guests. Winners receive a discount on 2021 exhibit rates.

RCPA includes two exhibitor registrations with the exhibit fee; because exhibitors can attend the entire conference, RCPA encourages organizations to use those registrations fully.

Exciting New Sponsorship Opportunities
The association is privileged to have the backing of the finest organizations in the field for its conference. Through the use of sponsorship circles, RCPA is able to honor all supporting organizations. This year, there are new and different sponsorship opportunities, including the Conference Experience Box, its contents (i.e., face masks, tumblers, hand sanitizer, etc.), and several options to sponsor within the mobile app. Some other new items available for you to sponsor include:

  • Naming Connections Hall – can be named for your organization
  • Headshot/Selfie Photo Booth – wear your conference swag for an opportunity to win prizes
  • Speaker Support – with an increased number of specialty sessions, there are many opportunities for support
  • Entertainment (comedian/music)
  • Conference T-Shirts (with logo, part of the Experience Box)
  • Mobile App Virtual Wall
  • And many more!

These two videos offer some great ideas on how to maximize your visibility and engagement as a sponsor and/or exhibitor at the 2020 RCPA Conference! Contact Sarah Eyster with questions or download the sponsor/exhibitor/advertiser brochure.

The deadline for inclusion in all digital material is now August 31. Sponsors, exhibitors, and advertisers who wish to be listed on the website, the mobile app, and in the online conference program must adhere to that deadline.

The association looks forward to welcoming you at the conference! Space and opportunities are reserved on a first-come, first-served basis and no reservation is considered complete without payment. If questions remain, please contact Sarah Eyster, Conference Coordinator.

Great News — the 2020 RCPA Annual Conference: Vision 2020, is going virtual!

RCPA is excited to be able to offer a dynamic event with national speakers and interest from around the country. Virtual events, which expand the scope of what we can offer, are the way of the future.

Going virtual has created different and exciting opportunities for attendees, sponsors, exhibitors, and advertisers. The mobile app has gamification features that sponsors and exhibitors can participate in to further enhance the virtual experience and make it both fun and informative for everyone involved.

We look forward to your continued support while elevating your conference experience! Contact Sarah Eyster with your conference-related questions.

Join RCPA as we host the 2020 Conference, September 22–25 at the Hershey Lodge. RCPA staff and the Conference Committee are excited to release this year’s Sponsors, Exhibitors, and Advertisers brochure, with new opportunities to get in on the action. Booth self-selection will continue this year for the exhibitors who submit their contracts with payment by March 31. And sponsors who would also like to exhibit will be given first choice through March 31. In order to be considered for self-selection, a completed contract with payment must be submitted. Please read through this alert as it highlights changes and opportunities.

Don’t miss your chance to be seen and to support the work of this dynamic organization! The event is a highlight for the Pennsylvania mental health, drug and alcohol, intellectual and developmental disabilities, children’s, brain injury, medical rehabilitation, and physical disabilities and aging provider communities. Complete information about exhibiting, sponsoring, and advertising options are available from the link above.

Sponsor, Exhibit and Advertise
Exhibit activities take place September 23 –24 and a draft schedule is included in the brochure. Based on your feedback last year, we have increased the number of activities offered throughout the event. RCPA encourages all interested parties to complete the contract now! During exhibit hours, coffee breaks will be extended and occur in Connections Hall, formerly Exhibit Hall. Events within Connections Hall include an opening reception with open beer/wine, breakfast, coffee breaks, lunch, and prize giveaways. Exhibit hours occur during the two busiest days of the conference, increasing the likelihood that exhibitors – an integral component to conference success – have the opportunity to interact with attendees. A “Best of Show” competition provides even more prospects to engage guests. Winners receive a discount on 2021 exhibit rates.

RCPA hopes to offer some type of “speed marketing” and will be reaching out to exhibitors as they sign on.

Interaction with conference guests outside of Connections Hall is just as important! Participating in other conference events such as receptions, meals, and educational offerings provide exhibitors greater potential and flexibility to establish opportunities for business. RCPA includes two exhibitor registrations with the exhibit fee; because exhibitors can attend the entire conference, RCPA encourages organizations to use those registrations fully.

Exciting New Sponsorship Opportunities
The association is privileged to have the backing of the finest organizations in the field for its conference. Through the use of sponsorship circles, RCPA is able to honor all supporting organizations. New this year:

  • Connections Hall can be named for your organization.
  • Pet Relaxation Area and informal networking for day only attendees
  • Head Shot Lounge – when was the last time you got your head shot updated?
  • Escalator graphics – be seen every time attendees move between hotel and convention center.
  • Speaker support – with an increased number of specialty sessions, there are many opportunities for support.

Within each sponsorship circle, specific events and items such as meals, receptions, conference tote bags, attendee materials, etc. are available, providing additional “naming recognition” for sponsors. Other ideas are welcome as well. Please review sponsorship materials and contact Sarah Eyster to reserve your opportunity.
