Welcome to the FOCUS Fall 2018 Conference at the beautiful Hotel Irvine in Irvine California - FOCUS’s first return trip to the West coast in 7 years ! We are very excited to be back in California and we've arranged a fantastic “deal” for our attendees at the beautiful Hotel Irvine that will save money and ensure 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 FOCUS attendees of only $149 per night with free Wi-Fi, free parking (with FOCUS validation), free roundtrip shuttles to and 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 – an incredible package of amenities that most high-end resorts (including this one) usually charge for. This hotel is simply beautiful, is located in a gorgeous area of California minutes from the water and it has extremely reasonable ($$) bars and restaurants on site – all of which, combined, are the reasons why FOCUS choose this facility and location for our Fall 2018 conference.
Academically, we’ll present 14 pertinent lectures for RTs, 14 for Pulmonary Function Technologists, 14 for Managers and 14 for Sleep Technologists by some of the most esteemed speakers in the U.S. today, enabling attendees to earn 14 credits in just 2 days. Our large exhibit hall will again feature 3 food functions and tons of door prizes included in your registration fee as well as FOCUS’s annual Night of Live Comedy show.
RT and PFT lectures (including management lectures) will be approved for CRCEs while our sleep lectures will be approved for CSTEs and CECs via the BRPT and the AAST. Our track of PFT lectures will enable PFT technologists 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. Consider bringing your partner and making a tax deductible “getaway” out of the conference. Significant-others who wish to earn CEU’s can attend for only $250 and for those who do not need CEU’s, the fee is only $150. We will also provide a $50 discount to active duty and veteran military as well as students.
Of course, in addition to being an educational forum, let us not overlook the social aspects of what is going to be a fantastic and fun conference as only FOCUS can deliver. With the food and fun we provide, our reputation for great value and great academia continues into our 23rd year. Californy…here we come. Hope to see you there !
Warm Regards - Bob Miglino RRT BSRT MPS - Focus Conference Chairman
