ANNA invites companies and organizations to enhance their sales and marketing programs among nephrology nurses by exhibiting their products and services at ANNA national meetings. Exhibitors have an opportunity to personally present their products and services to hundreds of nephrology nurses and health care professionals who make buying decisions. ANNA members initiate product evaluations, purchase products for use, and provide direct patient care utilizing your products and services. Since ANNA members are genuinely interested in your products, but often are too busy in their work environment to spend effective time with your sales representatives, ANNA's national meetings provide companies with valuable exposure within a learning environment. To maximize sales efforts, meeting schedules offer dedicated times for exhibits and targeted opportunities to talk to customers.
ANNA's National Symposium, which is held annually in the spring, draws an estimated attendance of 1,000 nephrology nurses and health care professionals.

Established as a nonprofit organization in 1969, ANNA has a membership of approximately 10,000 registered nurses in more than 100 local chapters across the United States. Members practice in all areas of nephrology, including hemodialysis, chronic kidney disease, peritoneal dialysis, acute care, and transplantation. Most of our members work in freestanding dialysis units, hospital outpatient units, and hospital inpatient units.
ANNA develops and updates standards of clinical practice, educates practitioners, stimulates and supports research, disseminates knowledge and new ideas, promotes interdisciplinary communication and cooperation, and monitors and addresses issues encompassing the breadth of practice of nephrology nursing.
