From Fellowship and educational sessions to keynotes and after-hours networking, this year’s ASPR Conference was a tremendous success! With perfect weather from Saturday to Wednesday, our members, sponsors, strategic partners, speakers and guests enjoyed each of the sessions (and the sunshine) as they grew in their career and network.
The spirit of ASPR brightly shined each day as members sought out new connections and explored new companies in our exhibit hall. With over 60 exhibitors, the ASPR exhibit hall featured specialty lounges by ALL STAR RECRUITING, Barton Associates and Vista Staffing Solutions.
With hundreds of attendees and exhibitors, we made a mark on the industry like never before. Here are some of our favorite highlights:
More than 500 attendees and 100 exhibitors were present at this year’s conference to network, learn and boost their careers, more than ever before. Here are five of our favorite highlights, and a video to share.

Our keynotes had standing room only- inspiring members and attendees like never before.
