Industry Attendee Registration

The AAOS Annual Meeting is a private meeting for medical professionals. However, as a professional courtesy, after review and approval, AAOS does allow a maximum of two representatives from a non-exhibiting commercial company to attend the meeting under the registration category of Industry Non-Exhibitor. Approval is not guaranteed and is at the discretion of the AAOS Exhibits Committee.

Qualifying individuals for the Industry Non-Exhibitor category include:

  • Equipment Distributor/Manufacturer (requires a letter of invitation from an exhibiting company)
  • Financial Analyst
  • Health Care Consultant
  • Investment Broker/Banker
  • Potential Exhibitor (one-time registration only)

Registration provides access to the technical exhibits. Soliciting business as a Industry Non-Exhibitor anywhere at the Annual Meeting, including on the exhibit floor, is strictly prohibited. Industry Non-Exhibitors are NOT allowed to attend AAOS educational programming.

Companies that have reserved exhibit space, have exhibited at past meetings, or registered for an exhibit and cancelled their exhibit space are not permitted to register their employees as Industry Non-Exhibitors.

Advance online registration has closed.  On-site registration will be available March 14-17 at "Industry Non-Exhibitor Registration" in the Hall F Lobby.

The registration schedule/fees are as follows:

    Online until January 31:             $1,400 per person

    Online from Feb. 1 to March 3: $1,600 per person
        (online registration closes on March 3 and will not be available from March 4 to March 13)

    On-site only, March 14-17:        $2,500 per person
