The National Home Infusion Association’s Annual Conference & Exposition begins in Orlando early next week. Just around 1,200 are expected to attend.

More than 1,200 home and specialty infusion professionals, including business owners, nurses, pharmacists, and dieticians, are headed to Florida to get the knowledge, skills, and tools needed to boost patient care, learn about trends and developments, and engage and collaborate with their peers.

Organization: National Home Infusion Association

Conference: 2017 NHIA Annual Conference & Exposition

Venue: Hilton Orlando

City: Orlando, Florida

On Monday, following a preconference program and concurrent sessions early in the day, NHIA 2017 begins with an opening keynote featuring Laura Stack. The president and CEO of the Productivity Pro, Inc., will offer attendees real-life strategies to maximize their productivity and strengthen their performance. Also worth noting:

Structured networking. After NHIA heard from past attendees that they wanted more formal networking opportunities, Industry Collaborative Sessions are making their debut this year. These sessions, which will include Medicare updates, focus groups, and a government affairs discussion, will bring together attendees and industry experts to discuss shared interests and find solutions to common challenges.

Out to sea. Before the meeting wraps up midday on Thursday, attendees can enjoy some downtime at SeaWorld on Wednesday evening. They can ride Orlando’s tallest, fastest, and longest roller coaster—Mako—or challenge their colleagues to some carnival games. And, of course, they also can check out some of the venue’s underwater creatures.

Bingo was his name-o. NHIA members can participate in the fun, engaging, and long-standing conference tradition known as Membership BINGO. It’s a great way to break the ice with exhibitors, and attendees who get their cards stamped can win a prize.

The usual social spaces—Facebook and Twitter (#NHIA17)—will have the other details you’re looking for.
