We are so excited to be able to invite you to join us for the HEMS 2022 Spring Conference.
With the restrictions lifting in Nova Scotia, we are delighted to be able to bring
together some of our favourite resources and vendors.
This year’s conference will be held on June 18th at the Forest Hills Fellowship Church.
Set up will be from 8 am until 9:30 am and the day will end at 4 pm.
We recognize that people have a range of perspectives on Covid protocols and if you
choose to wear a mask, that is perfectly acceptable, however, we are following the provincial guidelines with
regard to masking and distancing, and masks will not be required.
All vendors will have the opportunity to contribute a door prize and those who choose
to do so, will be highlighted during the opening session.
Cost of tables is $25 each. Tables will be provided. Should you wish to use your own showcases/displays,
they must fit into a standard table space and will be billed accordingly.
Space is limited and we want to be fair to all of our vendors and provide a safe venue for
our patrons to move freely.
