With the most sessions ever presented and the largest exhibit hall ever, it seems fitting that we also set an attendance record at the Amputee Coalition’s 2016 National Conference! With a total of 1,075 attendees, the Amputee Coalition is pleased to announce that the 2016 National Conference is the most successful National Conference yet!
The Amputee Coalition would like to thank you for helping make this a reality. As the preeminent event for the limb loss community, the Amputee Coalition’s National Conference couldn’t be successful without all of your support and commitment. The Amputee Coalition would like to especially thank all of our presenters for a record 95 sessions, our 60 exhibiting companies including our National Sponsors and many other exhibitors, the Sheraton Greensboro Four Seasons Hotel and their staff, and the many volunteers and supporters of the Amputee Coalition.
After such a great Conference this year, we’re already getting ready to provide you with another unbelievable experience in 2017! Help us to build on the momentum from this year and make the 2017 National Conference even bigger and better!
Join us in Louisville, Kentucky for the Amputee Coalition 2017 National Conference!
Who’s the Conference For?
This year nearly half of the Conference was made up of first time attendees. More than 60% of our attendees were individuals living with limb loss while nearly 20% of individuals registered as family members, caregivers, or friends of individuals living with limb loss. In addition, we saw many healthcare professionals and others involved in the limb loss community attend the Conference.
What is the National Conference?
The Conference is open to everyone and we try to make the National Conference the embodiment of the Amputee Coalition’s mission, to reach out to and empower individuals affected by limb loss to reach their full potential through education, support, and advocacy, and to promote limb loss prevention. Check out our 2016 Conference Program to see the types of sessions, events, and exhibitors the Amputee Coalition’s National Conference provides for the limb loss community.
