The Academy Annual Meeting is the premiere comprehensive O&P event. The Academy Annual Meeting & Scientific Symposium attracts an international audience seeking outstanding education and the opportunity to personally interact with exhibitors to learn about the products and services they can provide. At no other time are so many from our field gathered in such a collaborative environment enriched by such high quality education.
You will have the undivided attention of our attendees during several hours of the meeting when they are directed to the Exhibit Hall with no conflicting schedule. We hope you will read the Exhibitor Prospectus and learn about all the ways you can join us and become a true partner of the Academy family.
