The Alabama Pharmacy Association (APA) membership is the perfect audience for you to get the word out about your products and services to a targeted group of pharmacy professionals. APA offers several opportunities for businesses to promote themselves and put their name in front of decision makers through sponsorship, exhibits and advertising in our quarterly journal, Alabama Pharmacy.

We offer a number of events that are open to sponsorship and exhibition. By sponsoring APA events, you show your support for Alabama pharmacy professionals by helping to secure the best educational programming for our members while providing entertainment and social opportunities that allow members to interact and network with each other and you! From continuing pharmacy education (CPE) to grass roots activism, we encourage pharmacists and pharmacy technicians to be active members of their profession and communities.
Exhibiting and sponsorship of our activities is a great way to show your support and to reach active pharmacists, students, technicians and educators to share your company message. Contact Danielle Cole at 334-271-4222 or firstname.lastname@example.org to request forms for a specific event. Forms must be received and signed before sponsorship can be acknowledged. Exhibit confirmation will be sent on approved contracts and will include additional event information.
The design and production of CPE activities shall be the ultimate responsibility of the APA. The commercial supporter shall not control the planning, content or execution of the CPE activity. As an accredited ACPE provider, APA follows all the guidelines set forth by ACPE.
Event Sponsorship/Exhibition Recognition
Event sponsorship is a great way to get exposure. All sponsors and exhibitors will be recognized on signage at the meeting, listed in the meeting agenda, verbally acknowledged at the event, included in the event slide show (applicable to Mid-Winter Conference and Annual Convention), and highlighted in our quarterly journal, Alabama Pharmacy. In addition, APA will recognize sponsors/exhibitors on our Web site and in broadcast e-mails where appropriate. APA is open to discussing other options for recognition including, but not limited to, providing opportunities for companies to display their own promotional signage, providing links in broadcast e-mails, and electronically distributing material to attendees prior to event, etc.
Event Sponsorship/Exhibition Opportunities
Sponsorship opportunities for events are detailed in the Sponosr/Exhibitor Prospectus and are available on a first-come-first-served basis. If you wish to be the exclusive sponsor of a certain event, please let us know. The estimated cost is based on costs from previous years. APA is willing to work within your budget on sponsorships. We may seek cosponsors for food and beverage, speakers, networking events, etc. if the estimated cost is not covered. If you are interested in sponsoring or exhibiting at one of our events, please contact: Danielle Cole, 334-271-4222, fax: 334-271-5423, email@example.com.
