Become an Exhibitor

The 2023 Marketplace of Ideas is a place where participants and resource vendors can connect or collide in surprising ways to imagine what’s possible when forces of interest, offers, and needs combine. Designed in the spirit of an open-air market, visitors will have the ability to take in the entirety of the market at a glance, peruse market wares at their own pace, barter products and services without boundaries, or pull up a chair with vendors in designated spaces to gain deeper introduction to ideas, products, services, and resources of interest. Imagine the possibilities The Marketplace holds for conference participants to discover impactful ways to combine forces in 2023.

The Forum Marketplace gives your company the opportunity to meet individuals working in diversity and inclusion, human resources, government, healthcare, nonprofit, and other business sectors.  For questions about registration or more information about registration opportunities, contact The Forum’s Director of Sales and Engagement Catherine Hurley at

Booths this year are fully furnished with chairs, tables, rugs, table drapes and signage. It’s truly plug and play!
