Welcome to the FOCUS Fall (September 14-15, 2018) Conference at the beautiful Hotel Irvine in Irvine California - FOCUS’s first return trip to the West coast in 7 years ! We’re excited to be back in California and we've arranged a fantastic “deal” for our attendees that will save money and insure a fantastic time. The Hotel Irvine is a Forbes, 4-Diamond resort that usually charges $229 per night. We, however, arranged a special rate for our attendees of only $149 per night with free Wi-Fi, reduced fee on-site parking ($5 per day instead of $15), free R/T shuttles from the John Wayne airport, no resort fees, free use of the hotel fitness center, free local phone calls and a $10 credit per room to the hotel’s Starbucks café – a nice package of amenities that most high-end resorts usually charge for. The hotel is also located in a gorgeous area of California minutes from the water and it has extremely reasonable ($$-wise) bars and restaurants on site – all of which are the reasons FOCUS choose this hotel.
Academically, we’ll present pertinent lectures for RTs, PFT Technologists and Sleep Technologists along with numerous lectures for managers all by some of the most esteemed speakers in the U.S., enabling attendees to earn 14 credits in just 2 days. Our exhibit hall will also feature 3 food functions and many door prizes and we’ll have our FOCUS Night of Live Comedy as well.
RT, Sleep and PFT lectures will be approved for CRCEs while our sleep lectures (not RT or PFT lectures) will be approved for CSTEs and CECs via the BRPT and the AAST. Our track of PFT lectures will enable PFT techs to earn 14 credits specific to pulmonary function testing, something most conferences don’t offer !!
The cost of this 2-day conference ($300) is an excellent value when considering all that is included. Bring your partner and make a tax-deductible “getaway” out of the conference. Significant-others who wish to earn CEU’s can attend for only $225 and those who do not need CEU’s can attend for only $175. We also provide a $50 discount to active duty, veterans and students. If you cannot attend for both days, remember that you can attend for either day of the conference and still earn up to 7 credits in one day. The price of our 1-day registration is $195. A significant-other who needs credits can come for one day for only $145. If that person does not need ceu’s but wants to attend for one day as your significant-other, the fee will be $115.
In addition to being a great educational forum, let us not overlook the social aspects of what is going to be a fun conference as only FOCUS can deliver. With the great speakers, food, fun and entertainment we provide, our reputation for great value continues into our 24th year.
Californy…here we come. Hope to see you there !
Warm Regards - Bob Miglino RRT BSRT MPS - Focus Conference Chairman
