Description
Occupational therapy professionals and students attend this conference and exposition to see and purchase the latest technology in the field of Occupational Therapy.Connect with the largest gathering of occupational therapy professions and over 350 exhibitors. Our profession has come a long way since The National Society for the Promotion of Occupational Therapy (now AOTA) was established in 1917. As a profession, we’ve created occupational therapy practice areas and clinics; workshops; certifications; academic educational programs; accreditation standards; professional standards and policies… and the rest, as they say, is history! From arts and crafts to high-tech apps and evidence-based practice, we are continuing to move the profession forward. Now we are over 200,000 strong, and this is our time to celebrate our rich history and growth over the last 100 years! To mark this momentous occasion, we are celebrating in style at the 2017 Annual Conference & Centennial Celebration. This is one AOTA Conference you will not want to miss!

Experience an exciting new historical approach to the Welcome Ceremony, a Celebration Party FREE to all registrants*, a ticketed formal affair at the Franklin Institute, special events celebrating our storied history, and so much more. Of course, you’ll still find the high quality learning that you have come to expect, including over 1,600 amazing educational and poster sessions led by close to 4,000 outstanding speakers.
