On behalf of the American Association for Geriatric Psychiatry (AAGP), we invite you to be a part of our 2015 Annual Meeting in New Orleans, Louisiana. AAGP’s Annual Meeting is unique because it is the only national conference that brings together psychiatrists and other health care professionals responsible for the care of older adults with mental disorders. Illnesses ranging from Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias, depression, Parkinson’s disease, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, alcohol and substance addictions, and sleep disorders are discussed in detail among clinicians, researchers, educators, and trainees. In addition, the meeting topics focus on the many issues related to these illnesses including caregivers, nursing homes, pain management, and the elder care workforce. Our meeting is a “small” scientific meeting, with easy access to all sessions and other events. Participants look forward to being able to enjoy all of the offerings at the Annual Meeting as well as the networking opportunities. Due to the distinctive nature of the meeting and its emphasis on late-life mental illness, many attendees cite this as the only meeting they attend during the year.

Benefits of Exhibiting

Why Attend The number of older adults with mental illness is growing at a rapid rate in our society and having a significant impact on our nation’s health. The AAGP Annual Meeting is the largest meeting of physicians and other health care professionals focused on late-life mental illness. Many of AAGP’s 1,500 members choose to attend the AAGP Annual Meeting over APA or other scientific meetings due to the specific content in the geriatric field and the meeting’s intimate size. In addition, the AAGP meeting is attracting an increased number of generalists who find they need to educate themselves on the latest information in order to better treat their increasing number of older adult patients.

You Will . . . • Have the opportunity to interact with approximately 1,100 health care professionals responsible for the care of older adults with mental disorders: psychiatrists, physicians, psychologists, nurses and social workers who want to know about your products and services. • Have dedicated time to network—exhibit hours are scheduled at dedicated times that will allow you maximum opportunity. Receptions are also hosted in the Exhibit Hall to increase traffic.

The AAGP’s 2015 Annual Meeting provides high visibility to supporting organizations and unique opportunities to interact with AAGP leadership, members, and other conference attendees. The numbers of attendees continue to increase each year, as this meeting has become the primary scientific meeting for the presentation of cutting-edge research and new clinical innovations related to late-life mental illness. Exhibit hours have been scheduled at times that allow maximum opportunity to network. Receptions, Product Theaters, Posters, and breaks are hosted in the Exhibit Hall to increase traffic to you.

• Be able to establish national, regional, and local leads for your products or services.
