To help mitigate the spread of COVID-19 and to avoid surpassing capacity limits within the Columbus Convention Center, attendees wishing for an in-person conference experience will select one of two conference dates (Option A: Oct. 9-11 or Option B: Oct. 12-14).  Conference content will be the same for both set of dates: the keynote presentations are the only portions that will differ between the first and second dates.  

Attendees will have color-coded badges to indicate which conference option they are registered for.  We ask that you do not plan to attend both program options (you will only be allowed access to the option for which you are registered).     

Both Option A and Option B will enjoy similar features: either an Opening or Closing Reception, a day with Sterile Processing suppliers and 16 hours of education pertinent to your profession.   You can review the Schedule-at-a-Glance to determine which dates would work best for your schedule.  And be sure to reach out to the friends/peers you would typically see at the conference, to help coordinate and ensure you register for the same option (space permitting).  We want to encourage the camaraderie you've likely built over the years, but also offer opportunities for you to meet new friends and make new professional acquaintances.
