Convention & Tradeshow

We invite you to join us for our 56th Annual Convention and Trade Show, NCALTCF: Kickoff! Making New Traditions in Long Term Care, September 18-20 in Greensboro, NC! Last year we had over 300 attendees and 88 exhibitors, but would love to add more! We offer premiere continuing education opportunities for facilities all week long and offer vendors an ideal opportunity to mingle with administrators and facility owners.

Become a Sponsor:

  • Sponsorship is a great way for new vendors to get their name out to our members or for our seasoned vendors to have more time with them. We have a wide variety of levels that are perfect for every budget. Consider sponsoring a CEU, a hospitality suite, or our entire convention today!


  • Our trade show is one of the best! We have a lot of fun with our vendors and members at convention, but the Trade Show definitely brings a lot of excitement. We do booth decorating contest, encourage our vendors to bring games for more enteraction and give away door prizes at the end. It's definitly a fun environment to get to know old or new clients.

Track Training:

  • NCALTCF is dedicated to making a difference in Long Term Care. We believe that begins with providing premeire education. Track Training is one of our new opportunities to get specfic with certain staff members. Each year we provide training that directly relates to specific staff members. Keep an eye out for our registration to see who we're targeting in this year's trainings.


  • Convention is the perfect opportunity to get most of the CEUs required for the year. CEU credits are given for our Opening and General Sessions on the first 2 days and on the 3rd day we have several CEUs going on with mulitple topics to choose from. 


NCALTCF is offering up to 20 CEUs at this year's Convention and Trade Show!
