Do you feel the excitement in the air? It’s because the 2015 AHRA Annual Meeting is fast approaching! The Venetian in Las Vegas is where all the action will be July 19-22. The CRA Exam Workshop, basic track, advanced track, exhibitor symposiums, pre-conference workshops, and keynote speakers are all are designed to inspire, educate, and motivate each of us, no matter what job title we hold in the radiology profession.
Over 150 vendors will fill the exhibit hall for one stop shopping to compare products and services. As you stroll on over to the exhibit hall to learn about the latest technology from leading manufacturers, you’ll have the opportunity to win some prizes. Enjoy a complimentary lunch and the possibility of winning some cash daily while in the exhibit hall.
You can start off the conference by playing a round of golf on Sunday morning to support the AHRA Education Foundation. Network and make new friends while enjoying a round of golf in a beautiful setting. Educational sessions begin on Sunday afternoon, covering the most current industry topics and issues. Sunday evening closes with the New Member/First-Time Attendee Reception and the President’s Reception to follow. Let the NETWORKING begin! At the AHRA Annual Meeting, the networking never stops. Educational and keynote speakers continue throughout the week, and we will close out the meeting with a Venetian Carnival theme party on Wednesday evening. No need to bring a costume unless you choose; masquerade party masks will be given to everyone upon arrival. It will be a very festive and fun night!
Vegas, of course, is fun on its own… but put AHRA inside the Venetian–Palazzo Hotel & Sands Exposition Center, and you’ll have memories to last forever. There is no meeting like the AHRA Annual Meeting to leave you feeling more inspired and motivated. It is a meeting that creates so many friendships and connections that last a lifetime.
The Venetian in Vegas is the place to be this July! I hope to see you there.
