If you ever wanted to get together with fellow travelers and hobnob with industry experts, the Traveler’s Conference 2013 is a great option for you. The sixth annual Traveler’s Conference will take place October 28-29, 2013 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
This conference allows healthcare travel professionals the chance to gather and network amongst themselves while also attending panels, presentations, roundtables and other such functions through which they can learn more about the healthcare travel industry.
The social aspect alone is great, but conferences are also wonderful opportunities for brainstorming and getting inspired about your career. The Traveler’s Conference 2012 featured speakers including Reon Schutte, Joseph Smith, Gene Scott, Epstein LaRue, David Barse, Cynthia Kinnas, Melanie Theriac, Joanie Reneer, Todd Livingston, Lisa Armstrong, and Phil Light, among others.
The 2013 roster of speakers has not yet been announced, but organizational committee member Epstein LaRue says there will be “great topics for beginners and experienced travel nurses.” We will post another blog when it’s time to announce this year’s speakers.
Some examples of past presentation topics are, “Contract Negotiation: The Nuts & Bolts,” “How is the Money Allocated? Travelers Want to Know,” “Travel Healthcare Industry Update,” “Apples to Apples: Choosing the Right Company,” “Hawaii! How to Succeed at this Top Destination,” “Housing: Know All of Your Options,” “Licensing and Record Management: Keeping Track of All Those Documents,” and more.
The Traveler’s Conference 2013 will also include several more socially focused get-togethers, including a luncheon, pre-party, happy hour, and more.
“The Travelers Conference is held annually and has grown into the largest single gathering of healthcare travelers in the United States,” according to its website. “Organized by volunteers who are themselves current or former travelers, the sole purpose of this event is to provide a relaxed setting that gives travelers an opportunity to network with other travelers and industry insiders, earn some excellent CEUs, meet agency representatives in a relaxed, low-pressure setting, and just plain enjoy a tax-deductible Vegas trip.”
The newly remodeled Flamingo Las Vegas Hotel will host the Travelers Conference 2013. Click here for some more details on this year’s conference and to register. You can also visit the Travelers Conference 2013 on Facebook here.
