2023 NATIONAL CONFERENCE RECAP
The Amputee Coalition is pleased to announce the 2023 National Conference will be held at Renaissance Orlando at SeaWorld®, Aug. 2-5, 2023. This year’s conference theme, “Elevate Together Towards Tomorrow,” will highlight ways to build what’s next for the limb loss and limb difference community to ensure a world where our community thrives. The Amputee Coalition celebrates its diverse community and aims to fully engage all people living with limb loss and limb difference to build a collective voice on critical issues impacting the community and to elevate the organization’s mission: to support, educate, and advocate for people impacted by limb loss and limb difference.
As the premier event for the limb loss and limb difference community, the Amputee Coalition’s national conference is the only consumer-focused event that creates the opportunity for people living with limb loss and limb difference to interact with a breadth of solutions on the market. During our conference, attendees can engage with vendors, touch and feel the latest prostheses on the market, and leverage that experience to make informed decisions about their care and needed supports.
National Conference is also the Amputee Coalition’s largest activity designed to reach the community en masse based on our founding principles, including the importance of peer support and elevating expertise gained only through lived experience. Conference allows for education and engagement across all program areas (education, support, and advocacy). The National Conference also furthers our goal of being a thought leader and convener in the limb loss and limb difference space and serves as a sponsorship driver for our organization.
