Badge & Ticket Information


Registration Badges

Badges are required for entry to all AAOS Annual Meeting sessions and events, and are distributed with a paid registration.  

Included with your Registration: Full access to Paper Presentations, Symposia, Exhibit Hall, Featured Sessions (Flash Five, Showdowns, The Way I See It), Academy Hall: Orthopaedic Video Theater, Posters, ePosters and eScientific Exhibits, Poster Tours, Career Center, Resource Center, and “Your Academy” -  Special Event with Presidential Guest Speaker. You will also have access to our shuttle busses to and from the Annual Meeting sanctioned hotels.

CME Badge Scanning: If you have registered and received your badge in advance of the meeting, be sure to scan your badge as soon as you arrive at the Registration Desk so that your CME credits can be counted for your full attendance time.

Scanning at the session doors: Many sessions at the Annual Meeting will have AAOS staff members scanning your badge in addition to collecting your tickets at the door of the session room. Badge scanning is being conducted for future consideration of ticketless entry into sessions. This is not related to your CME credits.


Course Tickets

An additional purchased ticket is required for entry to:  ALL Instructional Course Lectures (ICLs), Case Presentations, Industry Sessions in the Exhibit Hall, BioSkills Sessions, Nursing and Casting Courses. 

  • Course tickets are sold with your registration and can be added to your registration any time up to the actual time of the session, pending availability. 
  • Onsite ticket sales are only available at the Registration Desk before the session begins.
  • Please Note: AAOS Staff will be collecting tickets at the entry to these sessions. You must have the actual ticket to gain entry. (Receipts, emails and photos are not acceptable tickets.)

Course Ticket Exchange: Tickets purchased in advance may be exchanged for the same type ticket (ICL ticket for an ICL ticket) at the on-site ticket sales counter. There are no exchanges available for the Education Tracks. The registrant must pay the difference between the advance purchase price and the onsite purchase price in order to exchange the ticket. No exchanges or sales after the start of the session.
