    Exhibiting at a CSHP Programs (Sorry, no exhibit space is offered at this time.)

    The Connecticut Society of Health-System Pharmacists receives numerous inquiries regarding industry opportunities to support educational events such as our evening continuing education programs which generally occur four times during the calendar year. Unfortunately, as many of you know, many hospitals have restrictions that prohibit our having exhibitors. If a hosting facility will allow, we will post information here and email information directly to all of the industry partners in our database.

    If you are unsure whether we have your current contact information, please request to be included
    by emailing your name, company, position, email and daytime phone number to office@cshponline.org

    When we are able to feature exhibitors, CSHP offers the opportunity to have up to two industry exhibitors at these events, when permitted by the hosting facility, at $1,000 for each exhibit.
      Reservations to exhibit at our evening CE programs are first come, first serve. Please contact CSHP at 888/506-3784 for availability before filling out and submitting a reservation form.
