The American Academy of Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine (A4M) has inked a five-year contract to bring its educational world conference to Las Vegas through 2016. A4M, who’s hosted their conference in Las Vegas since 2002, chose to continue to host its annual conference for the next several years in Las Vegas, due to its commitment to advancing medical and wellness tourism as a key growth market.
Therefore, A4M plans to bring its education curriculum to local, national, and international healthcare practitioners to understand the key advances in medicine and raise awareness of medical tourism.
A4M will be working with the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA), which recently hired Medical and Wellness Tourism Manager Cheryl Smith to drive its medical tourism initiatives. “The same reasons that make Las Vegas a world-renowned business and leisure destination are the same reasons Las Vegas can be the premier place for continuing medical wellness and education,” said Smith. “Our focus is to attract more medical-focused conferences like A4M so they too can see the value that so many other meeting planners see in Las Vegas.”
Las Vegas ranked No.1 on the 2011 “Top 20 Healthcare Meeting Destinations” by the Healthcare Convention & Exhibitors Association. Las Vegas is also named the Top Trade Show Destination in North America by the Trade Show News Network, a title it has held for 18 consecutive years.
“Las Vegas sensed the pulse of medical tourism and began to structure itself to create and drive this business vehicle. Our company gladly supports Las Vegas and its medical community and we look forward to educating the various doctors that arrive at our conference” stated Doreen Brown, CEO.
In addition to education, A4M has over 300 exhibitors in different facets promoting the latest products in Anti-Aging and Regenerative medicine. Doctors will be able to research products and implement them back at their practice.
As incentive for Nevada doctors to attend, A4M is giving members of the Southern Nevada Medical Industry Coalition a discount to A4M's 20th Annual World Congress on Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine December 13-15, 2012.
“Doctors, nurses, and healthcare practitioners are the staple of our community, working feverishly to ensure our well-being. We want to assure they obtain the best quality of education that can be offered at their convenience,” said Brown.
A4M's membership is comprised of over 26,000 worldwide members spanning over 110 nations.
