Tips & Tricks Workshop & Luncheon

Tuesday, October 9, 2018 (12:30-1:30 pm)


Lava Level exhibitors will be featured in this 1-hour product workshop that offers attendees an opportunity to demo products in an interactive, hands-on setting.  Each participating company will also have a designated WAIS physician expert who will facilitate discussions about procedure successes and pitfalls specific to the products being demonstrated.  The workshop format is a working luncheon and will allow physicians to move freely between the featured (approximately 4-5) expositions during the one-hour designated time slot.   Check back for additional details as we get closer to the conference.

Thought Leader Sessions

Scheduled through out the week


Back by popular demand, this session offers dedicated one-hour interviews with physician thought leaders and industry.  Corporate representatives meet with 4-5 physicians to conduct product reviews, identify unmet procedure needs, or recognize product usage trends.  In 2018, the Thought Leader Sessions will not run concurrently as they have in the past.  This will mean that companies do not have to compete for faculty.  Instead, these sessions will be scheduled in a WAIS VIP room with rotating time slots over the course of 3 days.
