AAPM Annual Meeting is the leading pain meeting that brings together the leading physicians for Networking, Engagement, Collaboration and overall Great Learning Experience.
Connect with more than 1,000 leading pain physicians and their multidisciplinary teams at the AAPM Annual Meeting. We repositioned the exhibit hall into the AAPM Resource Center, designed to complement the educational sessions presented throughout the meeting and networking opportunities to enhance collaboration. Exhibiting in the Resource Center enables you the opportunity to showcase your products and services face-to-face with physicians who want to learn about the latest treatment and devices that enhance patient care and outcomes.
Founded in 1983 as the American Academy of Algology, the American Academy of Pain Medicine (AAPM) has evolved as the primary organization for physicians practicing the specialty of Pain Medicine in the United States.
