TASA Sponsorship Program

ALL sponsor opportunities are for TWO TASA conferences – The annual Mid-Winter Conference (with a target audience of Tennessee EMS administrators and managers), and the medical reimbursement conference (held each fall with a target audience of EMS administrators and EMS medical billers).

Why Sponsor or Exhibit with the Tennessee Ambulance Service Association (TASA) conferences?

Reach Decision Makers –TASA members are the EMS leaders that make the decisions and have the purchasing power or have the ability to influence purchasing decisions.

Intimate Setting – While both conferences typically have an audience of 200 or less, this small focused audience will allow you to spend quality time with Tennessee’s EMS leaders.

  • Directors/Assistant Directors
