Things to Know

OR Manager Conference Audience
The OR Manager Conference Audience includes perioperative leaders, including OR managers, directors, business managers and others involved in running the surgical suite. Because the PACU Manager Summit is co-located with the OR Manager Conference, attendees of both events will be able to upgrade their registration package to gain access to all sessions. As such, your audience may also include PACU Managers, Charge Nurses (recovery), ASC Administrators, PACU Directors, as well as Nurse Anesthetists.

Hot buttons for attendees include communication, leadership, staffing, patient care, sterile processing, quality improvement, business management, technology, new programs, and ambulatory surgery center-specific topics.

The audience’s main concerns are getting advice and learning take-home tools that they can bring back to their OR to increase performance and success, in addition to hearing about lessons learned from peers and how to incorporate developing techniques with their resources.

All speakers receive complimentary conference registration to attend the OR Manager Conference sessions Wednesday thru Thursday. You are automatically registered upon confirmation of your speaking slot and will receive an email confirmation for your registration separate from this document. If you would like to upgrade your registration to attend the PACU Manager Summit, please contact Pepper Coe at pcoe@accessintel.com or 301-354-1798.

Staging and AV
All of the session rooms will be set in classroom style and equipped with one of each of the following items: laptop computer; one podium, podium microphone; wired lavaliere microphone, LCD projector/screen; wireless laser/mouse; flip chart. Wireless internet and sound will also be available for playing videos. If you are embedding video files or pulling from YouTube, we need the original video file separately from the presentation.
