The PAINWeek National Conference on Pain for Frontline Practitioners, managed by Aventine Co., today announced that it is moving the annual conference and exhibition to a completely new and innovative property, The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas (http://www.cosmopolitanlasvegas.com), beginning with PAINWeek 2011, September 7-10, 2011.
Montclair, NJ (PRWEB) November 1, 2010
Now in its fifth year, the PAINWeek National Conference has evolved to become the nation’s largest and best-attended professional conference providing pain management education for frontline practitioners. The recently convened PAINWeek 2010 attracted some 1390 attendees, a 25% increase over the prior year, to participate in the four-day expanse of course offerings, satellite symposia, product theatres, exhibits, special interest sessions and interactive experiences. Participants could choose from over 130 hours of CME/CE curriculum across some 21 course tracks, and 56 organizations were represented in the PAINWeek exhibition hall. Additionally, over 100 scientific posters were presented.
Looking ahead to PAINWeek 2011, Debra Weiner, Aventine Managing Partner and Director of PAINWeek Program Development observed, “As the relevance and importance of pain management education continues to grow, we anticipate concurrent expansion of interest in PAINWeek. Because we had already exceeded the guest capacity of our previous venue, we felt that 2011 was a good time to investigate other options that could comfortably accommodate all of our conference participants in a single facility. The Cosmopolitan offers that capability, and we’re very excited to be moving to this brand-new location and space.”
In 2011, PAINWeek will present new course concentrations in emergency medicine, oncology, and sex and gender differences in pain management, in addition to signature tracks in behavioral pain management, complementary and alternative medicine, hypnosis, neurology, pain and chemical dependency, ophthalmic pain, pain and palliative care, pharmacology, and rheumatology.
There will also be several new program formats available for commercial support—PAINWeek PDM™ (Product, Disease Awareness, and Medical Information) offerings and Meet-the-Professor forums will join the comprehensive roster of special interest sessions, scientific assemblies, and satellite symposia.For more information about PAINWeek 2011, visit http://www.painweek.org.
