Note to MoneyTrends Conference Attendees Regarding Our Conference Expo Hall:

 

Due to the ongoing and evolving COVID-19 restrictions imposed by CDC and the District of Columbia, as well as for the safety, comfort, and benefit of our attendees, we have replaced our traditional conference expo hall with a new MoneyTrends Networking Lounge, sponsored by NetSpend.

 

The MoneyTrends Networking Lounge will be available for all vendors and attendees, without charge, for networking, product demonstrations, and meetings at scheduled times throughout the conference. It is our goal for the Networking Lounge to provide our vendor partners with the same type of conference opportunities to maximize promotional, sales, and networking opportunities without some of the expenses associated with a traditional expo hall configuration.

 

We will invite attendee feedback on our 2021 MoneyTrends Conference for use in planning future events.
