The ADI Conference is held every two years around the world for our member organizations to educate our members on the latest developments and initiatives in the assistance dog industry as well as to share best practices. It is also one of the few times our members get the opportunity to network and learn directly from each other.

It is a great opportunity for your business to showcase your products and services, and talk to representatives from our member organizations. ADI has over 166 member organizations worldwide. Please consider attending our conference as a sponsor or vendor to support assistance dogs organizations around the world.
