WHY EXHIBIT?

The Florida Academy of Physician Assistants (FAPA) is the only statewide professional association representing Physician Assistants in Florida. The Summer Symposium offers an exhibit hall featuring the latest in health care innovations and services used by Physician Assistants who are decision makers in their hospitals or practices. 

In addition to our Florida Physician Assistants, the meeting attracts PAs from throughout the country, giving you the opportunity to talk with PA decision makers on a national scale. This symposium also attracts the well-regarded “key opinion leaders” from within the PA profession who are on the cutting edge of the latest developments in medicine. The meeting has a great turnout, with over 350 practicing PAs. 

We have customized the vendor experience based on your feedback. All breakfasts and breaks are scheduled inside the exhibit hall, and we have planned the instructional schedule to allow for optimal “face time” with attendees in the exhibit hall.
Be one of the 300 physician assistants who attend!
