The Guest House at Graceland Hotel
Did you miss the previous 2 FOCUS Conferences in Memphis TN.? – if so, you’ve another opportunity to attend when Focus returns to the Guesthouse at Graceland Hotel in Memphis TN. This Triple A, 4-Diamond hotel, owned by Elvis Presley Enterprises, was a big hit with Focus attendees in 2018 & 2019, so much so, that we’re returning to enjoy the same great facilities, rates & amenities in 2020 !
Attendees loved the hotel, its great food, its being 1 block from Elvis’ Graceland Mansion and its being right across the street from the Elvis and Rock & Roll Museums. They loved the 4-Diamond luxury of the rooms, amenities, pools, restaurants and bars; and they loved the free internet, the free R/T airport shuttles, the free parking and the R/T shuttles from the hotel down to Beale St. Everyone also loved the meeting facilities and how we were so well taken care of by the hotel staff.
Academically, you’ll hear the best speakers in the country while earning 15-18 credits. RT, Sleep & PFT lectures will be approved for CRCEs by the AARC while our sleep lectures will be approved for CSTEs & CECs. We’ve also added a free, 3-credit workshop in Medical Ethics, Patient Safety and Infection Control the night before the conference begins for those who need those courses. We’ve also expanded the RT and Sleep tracks by 3 more credits so, one can easily earn up to 18 credits at this conference.
We’ll have our reception in the exhibit hall (which is being enlarged for 2020) with free drinks, food and door prizes – then, later that evening, we’ll enjoy our annual comedy show featuring 3 comedians, included in your registration fee. The next day (Saturday) we’ll enjoy breakfast and lunch in the exhibit hall, as well.
And attendees can bring their “significant-other” to attend with them, (enjoying all events and lectures, but no CEUs) for only $100 – a fee so low it allows you to bring your partner so as to make a “mini-getaway” to Memphis out of the conference. Remember too, that you can attend for only 1 day if that’s all you can get away for and still earn 7-8 credits in one day.
Our 2nd annual FOCUS PFT conference (sort of a conference within a conference) will also take place at this conference with PFT techs being able to earn 15 credits specific to pulmonary diagnostics from such speakers as Gregg Ruppel, Carl Mottram, Dr. David Kaminski and five others – the nation’s finest speakers in Pulmonary Diagnostics – all at one conference.
Yes, we’re returning to Memphis September 11 & 12 2020. Don’t miss a great time and an excellent educational experience. Seize the opportunity and join us!
