Industry Non-Exhibitor Attendee Registration

The AAOS Annual Meeting is a private meeting for medical professionals. However, as a professional courtesy, after review and if approved, 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 (this qualification requires a letter of invitation from an exhibiting company)
  • Financial Analyst
  • Health Care Consultant
  • Investment Broker/Banker
  • Potential Exhibitor (one-time registration only, after doing this, the company must exhibit to attend future Annual Meetings)

Registration provides access to the industry 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.

The registration schedule/fees are as follows:

Online until February 14: $1,600 per person

Online February 15-March 13:  $1,800 per person
(online registration closes on March 13 and will not be available from March 14 - 23)
