H.O.P.E. Annual Health Fair
at the
​Congress of Christian Education Annual Session

June 20-24, 2016
Tampa Convention Center - Tampa, FL


March 2016

Dear Prospective Vendor:

Greetings! The National Baptist Congress of Christian Education [An Auxiliary of the National Baptist Convention, USA, Inc.] will hold its 111th Annual Session in Tampa, Florida, June 20-24, 2016. This year’s session will be held at the Tampa Convention Center with an anticipated attendance of more than 25,000 participants. While the main thrust of the meeting is Christian Education Training, our National Baptist Congress also sponsors an Annual Health Fair in conjunction with its H.O.P.E. (Health Outreach Prevention Education) Week activities. The health fair provides an opportunity for participating health organizations and non-profits to provide information about health related issues to the delegates attending the session.

We would be delighted to have your organization participate in the 12th Annual Health Fair and partner with us as we strive to build healthy communities congregation by congregation. We have a number of sponsorship opportunities available [See below or click here].

Our hope is that you will make a decision to participate this year. For more than a decade, participants attending the sessions have received life enriching and lifesaving information shared with them by hundreds of health oriented participants like you. We believe that your health related message would add to this legacy.

We anticipate that the 2016 Health Fair will be our greatest yet. We look forward to working diligently with you to make that happen. If you have questions or require additional information, please do not hesitate to contact me. Additional information about the H.O.P.E. Initiative is posted on our website [click here].


I look forward to working with you.
