Why Exhibit?

Your participation in AADE plugs you into a nationwide network of diabetes educators. Interacting within this community, demonstrating product benefits and providing samples can help you secure their product recommendation and create immediate and long-lasting purchase influence with thousands of diabetes patients across the country.

AADE’s Annual Meeting & Exhibition attracts health professionals who share a passion for promoting diabetes self-management to their patients: how to accurately monitor blood glucose levels, engage in exercise, adopt healthy eating habits, and cope with specific diabetes emotional and physical challenges. Self-management education also includes helping patients select products that best manage their diabetes.

Are the 12,000 members of AADE familiar with your products? If not, they can’t recommend them to their patients.
