Welcome to Sunny Orlando, Florida

The AAO-HNSF Annual Meeting & OTO EXPO will take place at the Orange County Convention Center, Orlando, today through Wednesday.

Welcome to the AAO-HNSF  Annual Meeting & OTO EXPOSM, the premier education and networking event for the otolaryngologist-head and neck surgery community. More than 5,500 of the brightest and most talented medical experts from around the globe have convened for this unique once-a-year opportunity to share practical, comprehensive knowledge and advance the specialty. This year’s destination is sure to delight attendees.

“Offering family-friendly activities, sunny days, and blue skies, Orlando is a top vacation site and a favorite for medical meetings,” said Mary Pat Cornett, Senior Director, Education and Meetings.

The Instruction Course and Scientific Program includes more than 300 continuing education sessions offering new skills and ideas for you to start using immediately. Our education program ends at noon on Wednesday, allowing us to offer concurrent Instruction Course and Scientific Programming Wednesday morning. “The final day offers something for everyone. I encourage you to take advantage of the variety of engaging education sessions on Wednesday before you head home and put everything you’ve learned to use,” AAO-HNS/F President Richard W. Waguespack, MD, said.

Oral Presentations continue to be a favorite among attendees. The shorter five-minute fast paced Oral Presentations have been expanded this year. These fast-paced talks were extremely popular last year, so this successful and engaging learning format has been expanded this year for all orals. Additionally, the “Best of Orals” session this morning will include select talks from each of our nine specialty tracks.

The OTO EXPOSM returns with hands-on demonstrations and Q&A about innovative, new products and technology that can help you improve your practice and enhance patient care. Be sure to check the schedule for OTO EXPOSM hours.

The popular and highly attended President’s Reception has moved to the OTO EXPOSM show floor! Taking place from 6:00 pm-7:30 pm tonight, this reception does not conflict with any other official programming and offers you the chance to network and socialize while viewing the latest tools and resources available from our exhibitors.

We strongly encourage you to note the new Product Theater to enhance your product awareness.  Don’t miss these presentations beginning today from our corporate partners!
