Suggestions to our attendees


Bless our exhibitors!

  • VHE is supported in large part by the participating exhibitors, so we ask that you purchase your materials from those who make it possible to host such a magnificent convention.

  • VHE is very excited about the number and quality of our exhibitors! We ask that you show your appreciation to them, not only through your words, but in your actions as well. Our exhibitors, many of whom are families, work hard and deserve their fair wages. Therefore, we strongly encourage you to support them in their work by purchasing from them at VHE, especially if they give of their time to answer your questions and address your concerns.

  • VHE diligently screens our exhibitors. However, it is not possible to investigate the content of every item they carry or evaluate every service they offer. VHE encourages our attendees to carefully examine materials or services before making their final purchases. The presence of an exhibitor at VHE does not constitute our endorsement of all their products or services.

  • VHE respects and appreciates your comments! If you find something that is inappropriate, or if you have positive comments about a particular company, please let us know on your evaluation form.

  • VHE’s mailing list and conference attendee information is strictly confidential. Please be advised that VHE is not responsible for information you give to exhibitors.
