Mid-America Orthopaedic Association is comprised of 1,400 physicians residing in the 20 central states of the Union. The sole purpose of the organization is to provide an annual scientific meeting for the members. The quality of this meeting has gradually increased over the years to the point that it is now the preferred educational meeting for many of our members. The meeting attracts an average of 300 orthopedic surgeons and typically includes 200 podium presentations, 45 posters, symposia, workshops, and special courses. There is a Presidential Guest Speaker, three Classic Speakers, a Rapp Lecturer (a subject on the “cutting edge of orthopedics”), and a Steel Lectureship on a non-orthopedic subject.
There are many opportunities available for your company to participate in the MAOA 2014 Annual Meeting to be held April 23-27 at The Westin La Cantera Resort in San Antonio, Texas. These include:
• Mobile Lab
• MAOA/ICJR Wednesday pre-meeting course
• Advertising in the preliminary program
• Sponsor the annual meeting and/or education programs
The Mid-America Orthopaedic Association’s Annual Meeting is composed of scientific material concerning all disciplines of orthopedic surgery presented by leaders in the field, members, and residents. It is a popular forum of education for both specialists and generalists. Some DOs, allied health professionals, and medical students also attend. It has gained a reputation of high quality due to the expertise of the presenters and the emphasis on audience participation. Continuing medical education (CME) credits are offered. During the meeting, MAOA can help your company in the following ways:
Dedicated Time with the Attendees
Your company representatives will have the opportunity to interact with the MAOA meeting attendees during the Welcome Reception, continental breakfasts, coffee breaks, and the special Exhibitor Reception held in the exhibit hall on Thursday evening. During the reception, registered physicians and their families will visit you at your booth while enjoying a refreshing drink and a bite to eat.
Free Pre-Conference Attendee List
Exhibitors will receive a complimentary list of pre-registered attendees approximately four weeks before the meeting. You can use this list to promote your products/services in advance and potentially boost traffic at your booth.
Attendance at the Scientific Portion of the Meeting
To better prepare and equip your sales force, MAOA welcomes and encourages your registered representatives to attend the scientific program portion of the meeting. This will enable your company to gather the most current and relevant information in the orthopedic field, further build rapport with the attendees, and gain a competitive advantage in the industry.
