Leading conference for operating room managers and business managers attracts highest number of attendees in February 2016.

Nearly 400 surgical services leaders from across the U.S. gathered in Glendale, AZ in February for the 2016 OR Business Management Conference. Attendees heard cutting-edge presentations on Lean management, scheduling innovations, staff relationships, nurse education, and cost-saving measures. They connected with peers during the Dine Around Dinner and various networking opportunities, and learned about the latest products and services from leading companies specializing in information management, medical supplies, data analysis, inventory management, and more.

Attendees of the conference said:

  • “Super happy, I highly recommend this conference!”
  • “The conference was intimate and it was easy to connect with attendees and exhibitors on a personal level.”
  • “The speakers were dynamic and gave specific steps to achieve success in their presentations.”
  • “The audience was engaged – I could see that other attendees are facing the same struggles as us and their questions and comments were reassuring.”

In its fifth year, the OR Business Management Conference was expanded to include educational tracks, more sessions, experts, and information than ever before. “We got very positive responses to our program, both from past attendees and newcomers. We were delighted with the quality of both our keynote and breakout session speakers, and I think our attendees walked away with real strategies they can take back to their facilities,” says Elizabeth Wood, Editor of OR Manager.

Registration is now open for the 2017 OR Business Management Conference, which will be held January 30 – February 2 at the New Orleans Marriott. Surgical services leaders can register early to secure the early bird rate of $100 off.

The 2017 conference is also seeking proposals to speak in New Orleans. For full details about registration and proposal submissions, please visit
