Vendor Exhibits

Perfusion related equipment and product representatives have long been dedicated supporters of the Missouri perfusion community and we always look forward to your assistance in creating a successful educational forum within our state.  Our meetings are designed to assist area perfusionists in maintaining licensure requirements through continuing education units while also providing an avenue for perfusionists to learn about the latest innovation, technology and practice.

Vendors who register to attend our meeting have the opportunity to display exhibits and will have access to a majority of the perfusionists from the surrounding area over the course of two days. We provide several allotted time slots throughout the two day event for perfusionists to meet vendors and view exhibits.   In addition to exhibits, vendors may also host events as well.  Please let us know if you are interested in hosting your own event during the meeting.

Vendors who attend our meeting will also have their logo displayed on our website as a official sponsor.  Your logo will remain on our site until December 31st of each year you attend.  By registering early, your logo will be displayed on our site for a longer duration of the year.  You can register as early as January.

Frequently Asked Questions

Questions about the meeting? Click the questions below to display the answer.

Meeting Registration & Fees

How do I find out about the upcoming meeting?

We plan the meeting at the Fall Board of Directors meeting and traditionally, the meeting is held on the first weekend of June. As soon as it is planned, the Missouri Perfusion Society will announce the meeting dates via our newsletter and also provide information on our website as soon as a facility is secured.

Do I need to register to attend the meeting?

Yes. You can easily register on our website. Only paid registrants will be allowed to attend sessions at the meeting.

Can I register at the door?

Yes.  Some people are not sure of their call schedule/work requirements and are unable to commit to attending the meeting beforehand.  This means you will be paying a late registration fee.  When you arrive, your information will be entered into our system.

Why am I require to have an online account?

For increased efficiency and to better serve our attendees, the meeting registration and CEU's are managed by our online system.  Even if you register at the door, your information will be entered into our system.

Does my spouse need to register to attend the meeting?

Spouses are not allowed to attend meeting sessions unless they are also a paid registrant. However, if a spouse wants to eat the lunch/dinner provided, we provide an option to add a spouse with your registration fee and your spouse will receive a name badge that provides access to meals.

Can I bring friends or other family members to the meeting?

Anyone can attend the meeting, but only paid registrants are allowed to attend meeting sessions.

Am I required to stay in the hotel listed for the meeting?

You can stay at any hotel you wish. However, we have negotiated group rates for our registrants which often includes free items like WiFi codes and breakfast/happy hours. Meeting attendees who are not guests of the hotel will not receive free items offered by the hotel.

I prefer not to pay online, can I pay at the door?

You can pay at the door which some people do as they are not sure of their call schedule/work requirements. This means that you will be paying a late registration fee. To receive the early registration discount, you must register AND pay before the early registration deadline.

I prefer not to pay online, can I pay by check?

Yes. You will still need to register for the meeting on our website. Once you have registered, you will be given the option to pay with a card or pay by check. If you choose to pay by mail, submit your check with your order number in the memo to the address shown at checkout.

What type of card can I pay with online?

We accept credit or debit cards from Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover.

What are my payment options at the door?

You can pay by check or by card at the door.

At the Meeting

Do I need to bring a copy of my registration to the meeting?

No. We check the names off the pre-registered list and issue name badges and registration packets. A name badge is needed for entry into meeting sessions.

Can I record presentations?

No. However we sometimes provide links to presentations or sometimes distribute flash drives. Usually speakers ask that proprietary information is not given to registrants. It depends on the subject matter.

What should I wear?

Business casual is appropriate.

Are meals provided?

Usually meals during meeting hours are provided. If the meeting starts in the morning, we provide breakfast. Lunch is always provided. On Friday night, we usually host a vendors happy hour with light appetizers and drinks. Dinner on Friday night is on your own after the happy hour.

Can I volunteer to help with the meeting?

There are opportunities to moderate at all meetings. If you are interested, please send an email to the Meeting Director.

Continuing Education Credits

How will I receive proof of my CEU's?

Using your online account, you can view your CEU's inside your dashboard. After the meeting, your CEU will be added to your account. You can view it and print or download a PDF version of it from the website.

Do CEU's count toward my certification requirements with the ABCP?

Yes. Our meetings provide you with Class I CEU's that count directly toward your ABCP requirements.

I am not a perfusionist, do the CEU's count toward other professions?

No. Our meeting CEU's are specific to perfusion.

How are CEU's calculated?

One CEU is equal to 50 minutes of talk time. Breaks, lunches and breakout sessions do not count.

Refunds & Cancellations

Is my registration fee refundable?

Registration is non refundable. The Missouri Perfusion Society is required to pay meeting expenses based on the number of registrants submitted. Even if you do not attend, we are still required to cover this expense so we are not able to give refunds.

What happens if the meeting is cancelled?

This has never happened. Only in the extreme case of a natural disaster or something of that nature would the meeting be cancelled. Most likely we would be able to reschedule.

I need to make a change to my registration, who do I contact?

To make a change to your registration, please go to the Contact Us page and complete the form explaining the changes that need to be made.

I need help registering for the meeting. Who do I contact?
