Sponsorship & Exhibiting Opportunities


Why are you offering a workshop for OR business managers?
OR business managers are an integral part of effective and efficient management of operating rooms in hospitals and surgery centers. As such, OR business managers, and OR directors who serve both roles, benefit from having intensive educational experiences with opportunity to learn from experts and discuss concerns with colleagues.

Is there a dress code for the workshop?
Business casual is the best choice.

What do I need to bring?
Bring your questions, concerns, and your enthusiasm for your job. Make sure you bring your laptop computer to use in the group breakout sessions. Additional materials will be provided at the workshop. Details will be provided prior to the event.
