The 25th Annual Chicago Trade Show will take place on March 3, 2017, at the University Club in downtown Chicago.  This half-day event will include four half-hour presentations, and breakfast. The event also includes ample time to interact with up to 20 vendors. The Trade Show and Symposium is limited to a single session, so attendees benefit from the information shared in every presentation, and presenters have access to a quality audience. Certifications for 2.0 Continuing Education hours will be granted.
