Background

The San Diego International Conference on Child and Family Maltreatment conference is one of the few “must attend” Family Violence and Abuse Conferences in the United States. Now in its 30th year, this multidisciplinary conference attracts 1500-2000 professionals, from medicine/health, legal/investigations, child welfare, mental health, and others from around the world. In January 2015, we had international professionals from 30 countries and every state in the United States.

This is an excellent opportunity to engage with the professionals and executives of many child and family forensic and service organizations and to promote your business, products and services by becoming an active and visible partner. Exhibitors and sponsors will enjoy this opportunity to reach key decision makers and over 1500 professionals from around the world.

The exhibit hall has been moved to a more central location and will also have tables in the hall around the hall. Everyone must pass this area to get to the general sessions and breakouts. All continental breakfasts and coffee breaks will be in the exhibit hall every day. All exhibitors will be listed on big screen in the general session each day and also be listed in the program brochure. Larger exposure in both of these areas is available.

Opportunities

Many opportunities are offered to advertise your services and products. Our exhibit hall and surrounding areas have a mix of scientific products that enhance professionals' work, resources and resource materials, and fun stuff like jewelry, accessories, and other gift items.

For the first time, we are open to promotional products for our attendees and several opportunities are available. Also, we have a few sponsorships to offer.

Make your commitment to the children. Good training helps to provide good services.

Contact Ana Bravo for details at sdconference@rchsd.org.

Join us in sunny San Diego this coming January 2017. We look forward to seeing you!
