Registration Information

If you register by July 31, 2013, your registration packet, including meeting badge/badge holder and any tickets purchased, will be mailed to you in late September.

Advance registration is strongly recommended, since it offers the best chance of enrolling in the sessions of your choice, and it will save you time when you arrive in Orlando.

Bring your meeting badge and tickets to Orlando. You do NOT need to stand in line to check-in if you have already received your badge and tickets.

Please note: All international (non-US) registrants must check in at the AAOMS "Will Call/International Packet Pickup" counter in the Orange County Convention Center West. We regret that we cannot mail registration packets to addresses outside the United States.

Registrations After July 31st

All registration forms received after July 31st will be charged the on site registration fee. Registration packets for any registrations received after July 31st must be picked up at the "Will Call/International Packet Pick-up" counter in the Orange County Convention Center West.

On Site Registration/Ticket Sales

All meeting attendees who have not preregistered must register on site at the AAOMS "On Site Registration" counter in the Orange County Convention Center West.

Ticket Information

General meeting registration grants admission to all symposia, abstract and poster sessions, open forums, CIG programs and the Exhibition. Individual session tickets are required for clinical and hands-on courses. Daily passes are required for admission to practice clinics and professional allied staff courses. See the General Information page for more details.

After July 31, 2013, clinic and lecture tickets, if still available, will be sold at the AAOMS "On Site Ticket Sales" counter at the Registration Center in the Orange County Convention Center West. Tickets for special events may be available on site; however, since many of these programs have limited attendance, you are encouraged to register early.

Anyone who is registered and wants to exchange tickets for any session should go to the "On Site Registration" counter while at the meeting.

Anyone who is registered and needs a replacement badge should go to the "Replacement Badge/ " counter in the Orange County Convention Center West.
