Still debating? Perhaps our promotional video will persuade you.

Are you interested in exhibiting? Registration opens for exhibitors in January 2018 and we encourage you to contact Jessica DeCaro (jessica.decaro@case.edu) or Michelle Kraft (kraftm@ccf.org) to have your questions answered or to learn more about the opportunities.

Registration for attendees opens on April 14, 2018, and click here to see the Conference room rates and options at The Westin today! We encourage you to consider reserve lodging sooner rather than later, because the Cleveland Indians or Cleveland Browns could be in town and playing the same weekend as the conference. The last day to reserve a conference hotel room is September 21, 2018!
