Why Attend

Leaders of the surgical suite attend the OR Manager Conference every year to get the hands-on education and experience to take back to their organizations. This is the #1 conference for perioperative managers and directors to receive continuing education credit, engage in networking with their community, and meet with vendors that have the potential to positively impact their organizations. Over 1,400 attendees register every year to:

  • Gather education and tactical resources through conference keynotes and breakout sessions
  • Network with colleagues (and have a little bit of fun!)
  • Earn continuing education credits
  • Visit with vendors/compare products/learn about the latest equipment for the operating room

Educational content is put together by the experienced program planning committee made up of education specialists, directors of surgical services, operating room managers, chief nursing officers, and other perioperative leaders.

Attendees leave with tactical take-home tools that they can implement immediately, in addition to being invigorated to return to their facilities and have a valuable impact. Need more help justifying your attendance? Here’s a justification kit to help.
