The ARA Show™


ARA's annual convention and trade show

The ARA Show - Focus on the Future

A lot has changed in a short time. We’ve been challenged to adapt faster than we ever expected. And the events of 2020 have put our strength and resilience to the test. If there has ever been a time to turn to and learn from each other, this is it. That’s why we are continuing to plan for The ARA Show 2021 in New Orleans as scheduled.

The ARA Show is your place to look forward and set a course for what’s next. You’ll not only find the education, products and technology you need to position your business for the future; you’ll also find community.

We are monitoring all the leading sources of health information and working closely with our convention center partners, the city of New Orleans and many others to ensure that we provide a show that is clean, safe and essential to your business. 

While the show may look different for 2021, you can still count on ARA for the resources you need to meet your customers' changing demands. We're committed to providing an event that delivers relevant value for the world we’re in now.
