INVITATION TO EXHIBIT
AOAO is pleased to invite your organization to increase your visibility and build relationships with leaders in osteopathic orthopedic surgery. Industry support is vital to the success of this conference and demonstrates your commitment to improving patient care.
With unopposed exhibit hours in the Exhibit Hall, you will have an opportunity to generate new leads with orthopedic surgeons.
This activity is intended for osteopathic surgeons in the field of orthopedics, orthopedic residents, allied health and any physician interested in the practice of orthopedics.
The goal of this year’s program is to provide orthopedic surgeons with an update on current techniques and controversies in orthopedics. Leaders in the field will debate and discuss selected topics so that practicing orthopedists will have knowledge to further develop their skills.
We anticipate 600-700 attendees at the AOAO Annual Spring Meeting / Postgraduate Seminar.
