  • Attend a PPN exhibitor product tour – NEW!
  • Network with your PPN peers at the EXPO Reception featuring the PPNs on Sunday from 4:30 to 6:00 p.m. It’s now free to all registered annual meeting attendees, and non-PPN members are welcome to attend.

PPN meetings take place on the EXPO floor throughout the day on Saturday and Sunday, October 22-23, and are open to all attendees. Already a member of one PPN, but curious about another?
