2014 Travelers Conference

2014 Travelers Conference logo

The 2014 Travelers Conference is coming this September!

September 23-24 are going to be the dates for the 2014 Travelers Conference!

The annual conference will once again be held at the Flamingo Hotel and Casino, located on the Las Vegas strip. The 2014 Travelers Conference is hosted by PanTravelers, and according to its website, it has grown into the largest single gathering of healthcare travelers in the U.S.

“Organized by volunteers who are themselves current or former travelers, the purpose of this event is to provide a relaxed setting that gives travelers an opportunity to network with other travelers and top industry insiders,” reads the Travelers Conference site.

You can still nab the early registration discounted price of $89 (for both days) prior to August 1st. Standard registration is $99, from August 1st-September 1st. And, if the event is not yet sold out (as it was last year by this time) the last minute registration fee is $115. PanTravelers contributing members are entitled to a 15% discount on the cost of conference registration.

This year there will also be a Newbie Boot Camp, Monday, September 22, from 1-5 p.m. This will allow new travelers the chance to learn from experienced travelers and staff. It is completely free, with your paid 2014 Travelers Conference registration.

As of this posting, the 2013 information was still posted under schedule and speakers — to give an idea of what attendees can expect. But, there is information about the 2014 Welcome Receptions and Gypsy Nurse Luncheon, and the full roster and schedule will be posted as they develop.
