OTO EXPO℠  Expands Educational Opportunities

0807-EXPOThere are many ways to learn during the Annual Meeting & OTO EXPO℠ , so don’t overlook the hands-on education you can experience by visiting the OTO EXPO show floor, where you can see how the products, devices, and services can be utilized to improve your practice from Sunday, September 27, through Tuesday, September 29.

Whether you’re a loyal participant with many years of attendance or looking to explore the event for the first time, this exhibit hall will be new for all parties involved. This year, the schedule of education sessions has been changed to give you more control of your learning options. You will find it easier to have time to visit the exhibit hall to see the products and technology discussed in those sessions. You may learn about advances in throat surgery in a session and then head to the show floor to see the products used in live demonstrations, for example. With the OTO EXPO spread out from Hall C through Hall E of the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center, here is a breakdown of what can be found throughout the halls.

This year’s Poster Presentations are intended to engage attendees in dialogue while providing a summary of the presentation that will encourage attendees to learn more. Posters will be on display in Hall C from Sunday, September 27, through Tuesday, September 29.

Hands-On Training

In its debut last year, the Hands-On Training venue proved to be an incredible learning opportunity for attendees. Participating physicians receive product training in otolaryngology, led by company representatives and faculty who designed the instrumentation. These two-hour training sessions allow participants to preview the newest innovations in otolaryngology surgical tools on cadaveric specimens. Space is limited, so, make it a point to register for these sessions in advance of the show by contacting David Buckner.

Product Theater

The AAO-HNSF Product Theater provides attendees the opportunity to extend learning to the theater with AAO-HNSF corporate sponsors. In various intervals you can review recent scientific studies and information or watch a live demonstration performed by a leader in otolaryngology. Session presentation times will be prominently displayed around the exhibit hall.

Quality Exhibitors

You want to get your hands on the latest products to help you deliver better patient care. Throughout halls C, D, and E, you will find quality companies that deliver innovative surgical instruments, scopes, electronic billing services, robotics, and an array of medical devices for the industry.
