73rd Annual IHCA Convention & Expo

September 11-14, 2023
BOS Center | Springfield

IHCA Now Accepting Booth Reservations!

The 73rd Annual Illinois Health Care Association (IHCA) Convention and Expo will be here before you know it. This informative and fun-filled four-day event is crafted with long term care providers, and the vendors who work with them, in mind. The slogan for this year’s event is Reaching for the Top. As the long term care profession moves forward in the post-pandemic era, care providers strive each day to provide top quality care for the individuals they serve and this theme was chosen to honor these dedicated individuals.

Each year, IHCA offers a variety of sponsorship opportunities at our annual convention and expo. These sponsorships give companies a chance to put their name and logo in front of attendees in a number of ways, and in some cases provide the sponsor with the opportunity so speak directly to an audience of attendees.
