Grand Hyatt San Antonio
San Antonio, Texas

This summer, TAFP will host the 65th Annual Session and Scientific Assembly in San Antonio, Texas. Each year 400 primary care physicians and other providers from across the region attend this three-day conference to earn more than 20 credits of continuing medical education, network with peers, and explore the new products and services offered in the ever-changing medical marketplace.

Exhibit at Annual Session and Scientific Assembly

Annual Session attendees include family physicians in both private and group practice, internists, medical students, family medicine residents, academic leaders, and policymakers from the state and local communities. Exhibitors are typically pharmaceutical companies, electronic health record suppliers, armed services, home health providers, and other health-oriented companies and organizations.

TAFP builds traffic in the exhibit hall by inviting attendees to breakfast, beverage breaks, and snack breaks all inside the hall. As an exhibitor, you’ll be listed in the Official Program and will receive an attendee list post-conference.
