Vegas Welcomes OR Today Live – Conference Preview

By John Wallace

The conference tailor-made for you – OR Today readers – is headed to Vegas! Enjoy extreme luxury along with exceptional education, energizing networking and an excellent exhibit hall at OR Today Live! Join colleagues from around the nation August 18-20 at the newly renovated the Palms Casino Resort. Register at before May 31 and save!

Perioperative nurses and SPD professionals from across the country will gather at OR Today Live to discover new opportunities, broaden their knowledge and exchange ideas. Whether you need an extra boost of motivation in your career or are looking to earn CE credits – OR Today Live is the conference for you. It provides world-class speakers in an environment designed to motivate and empower perioperative professionals just like you.

Internationally recognized for its exceptional accommodations, high-energy nightlife, extravagant pools and world-renowned restaurants, the Palms Casino Resort captures all the excitement and energy of Las Vegas in one vibrant setting. Situated on nearly 30 acres, Palms is a boutique property with three distinct towers – each offering unparalleled views of the iconic Las Vegas Strip. Having recently undergone a multi-million dollar transformation that has left nothing untouched, the Palms has redesigned its rooms, added new culinary experiences, and created even more distinctive nightlife and daytime experiences. Also, the campus boats some of the most impressive artwork seen in any hotel including Damien Hirst’s shark art dubbed “The Unknown (Explored, Explained, Exploded).” The 13-foot tiger shark, caught by a fisherman in Australia, sits in three segments of steel and glass tanks, preserved in formaldehyde.

The host hotel’s renovation and atmosphere will no doubt add to and maintain the intimate OR Today Live experience. Unlike some other conferences, OR Today is designed to foster interactions and the sharing of ideas. Attendees will be actively involved from the minute they pick up their materials at the registration desk, to their first class, the exhibit hall, the welcome reception and all the way to the moment their leave for the airport.

OR Today Live’s educational panel seeks out top-notch courses, yet some of the best lessons are learned from simple interactions with a colleague at one of the networking events at OR Today Live. It is all part of the design.

The educational offerings include Super Sessions and a Keynote Address as well as more than 20 hour-long presentations! Attendees can earn up to 16 CEUs. An additional offering is a CNOR Prep Course. Whether you have registered for the CNOR exam or are thinking about it, preparation is the key to earning your credential. During this interactive course, you will prepare for the CNOR exam, with focused attention from a CNOR-certified professional in a live classroom setting.

OR Today Live continues to be a smaller and more intimate perioperative conference. It has grown and continues to do so but the goal is to always maintain the unique blend or engagement and entertainment that makes it stand out to today’s perioperative leaders.

“It was an excellent conference. The speakers were well informed, professional and engaging. The atmosphere was energetic, and fostered a professional learning environment,” Megan Beaton, Director of Surgical Services, said after a previous OR Today Live.

This is a conference designed for you. It just happens to be in one of the most popular destinations in the world. Don’t miss your chance to visit Las Vegas and leave with the latest information, education and a long list of new professional contacts from peers and businesses that can help you continue to succeed.

Don’t miss early bird registration. Register now for only $250 and receive access to the CE Super Sessions, Welcome Reception, Education Sunday-Tuesday, Exhibit Hall and ORTL Finale Party. The price will go back to $300 after May 31.
