You are invited to be a supporter and/or exhibitor at our annual spring conference in Minneapolis, Minnesota on June 7 & 8, 2013.
Our theme is "The Way Forward: Current Concepts in Joint Preservation."
All University of Minnesota orthopaedic residents will be in attendance. Last year we had approximately 150 course participants and we
hope to increase that this year.
We invite you to take a look at the exceptional content and great line up of speakers in our agenda.
The fee for an exhibit table in the designated display area at the Hilton Hotel will be $1650.00. This area will be open to attendees on
June 7 beginning at 7:00 A.M. and on June 8 at 7:30 A.M. There will also be a reception in the vending area immediately following the course on June 7.
A signed Exhibitor Agreement will be required from all companies who arrange for a display table.
In accordance with the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), there must be a separation of education and promotion
within any educational activity that bears AMA Physicians Recognition Award (PRA) category 1 credit. Also, exhibits must not interfere -
or in any way compete with - the learning experience. For those portions of the course eligible for CME credit, the faculty will be in the
role of leading the class presentations with an emphasis on medical procedures, approaches, and techniques.
