Thank you for choosing to speak at OMTEC 2024! We’re thrilled to have you join us and we want to make sure your OMTEC experience is complete. In addition to the FAQs listed below, there are 2 essential things to know.

  1. Your Speaker Badge gives you full access to everything OMTEC has to offer. We hope that you’ll supplement your speaking commitment(s) with visits to the exhibit floor and attendance to the wide array of social events and educational offerings. There’s always something new to learn, a fresh perspective to consider and a helpful connection to be made. Please embrace the “OMTEC experience”!
  2. We’ll provide you with a registration promo code with the expectation that you’ll share it with your colleagues, customers and partners by email and on social media. Spread the word about OMTEC and help attendees save on their registration fees. 


Now, on to the FAQs…

Do I need to register for OMTEC?

Yes. You’ll receive registration instructions via email. Pick up your badge onsite at the registration desk located in Hall G of the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center beginning at 8:00 am CT on Tuesday, June 13.

 

When and where is my session(s)?

Hopefully, you have these details in an email. If you’re stuck, find your name in the list of speakers on this page and you’ll be directed to the day, time and location of your session(s). It’s important to know that the Tech Center and Think Tank are located on the exhibit floor. The banquet room and the session rooms are next door to the Exhibit Floor and there is a large sign above the entrance to guide you. It might go without saying, but OMTEC is located inside the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center. There are covered walkways from some of the neighboring hotels or enter through the main doors.

 
Who will attend my session(s)?

We can’t predict exactly who will attend your session, but you can count on orthopedic OEM/Device company engineers and executives to be in the audience. This page details the company names and titles of OEM attendees from the last two conferences. Further, it’s likely that there will be professionals from the exhibiting supplier companies as well as a consultant or two.

 
What is the deadline to submit my presentation and how do I submit it?

The presentation deadline is Friday, May 24. An OMTEC-branded PowerPoint template and presentation upload instructions will be available in April.

 
How can I market my presence at OMTEC?

OMTEC 2024 graphics are available to use across your website, emails and social channels. Please use the registration promo code we provided you to help your colleagues save $100 on registration.

 
What hotels and airport do you recommend?

Fly into the Chicago O’Hare International Airport—it’s literally just minutes from the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center and the neighboring hotels. Complimentary hotel shuttles are available. Please confirm your hotel room reservation using the links provided on this page to benefit from our negotiated rates.
