Who Attends the SOA Annual Meeting?

The Southern Orthopaedic Association's Annual Meeting is the meeting of choice for orthopaedic surgeons practicing in the southern states, drawing approximately 275 surgeons each year. DOs and Allied Health Professionals also attend the meeting to stay ahead of the curve in the field of orthopaedics. The SOA provides continuing medical education to those individuals who are on the forefront of both scientific and socioeconomic orthopaedic causes.

Why Choose SOA To Exhibit?

Understanding the importance of our exhibit partners, SOA strives to make sure your exhibiting funds afford you plenty of face-time with our attendees. We believe these connections are as valuable to our attendees as they are to you. Exhibiting with the SOA provides you the benefit of the following:

Dedicated Time With The Attendees

All breakfasts are served in the exhibit hall. We arrange the exhibit hall so that food and beverages are strategically placed to maximize traffic for everyone. Additionally, we have an Exhibitor Reception, a two-hour social event with drinks and heavy hors d'ouevres in the exhibit hall. This event is well attended and usually exceeds the time scheduled because of the positive experience. It's a great setting to develop relationships with the doctors. We have several breaks each day and give out prizes valued at approximately $275 per day in the exhibit hall. Doctors are required to have a card stamped by numerous exhibitors in order to be eligible for the prize. We find that in addition to the general interest in your products and services, the prize is a great incentive to drive traffic to you.

Pre-Meeting Attendee Mailing List

Exhibitors will receive a complimentary pre-registered attendee mailing list approximately four weeks before the meeting. You can use the list to promote your products/services in advance and potentially boost traffic at your booth.

Post-Meeting Attendee Mailing List

To assist you in your post-meeting marketing efforts, the SOA will supply, upon request, a FINAL list of registrants which will allow you to conduct follow-up correspondence with registrants via mail.

Attendance at the Scientific Portion of the Meeting

To better prepare and equip your sales force, SOA welcomes and encourages your registered representatives to attend the scientific program portion of the meeting. This will enable your company to gather the most current and relevant information in the orthopaedic field, further build rapport with the attendees, and gain a competitive advantage in the industry.

Acknowledgement in the Scientific Program

Your company will be listed in the Scientific Program along with contact information, website address, and a brief company description.

Personalized Onsite Assistance

The SOA strives to make your exhibiting experience the best business investment possible. We appreciate your involvement and look forward to partnering with you for many years to come. To ensure a positive experience and productive meeting, we have a dedicated SOA Onsite Coordinator available to assist you with locating doctors and making exhibit arrangements.
