Inside every room is a suite where layers of luxury are revealed, in walk-out balconies with water views, fully equipped kitchens, and Hyatt Grand Beds. Colorful dining ranges, to tropical cocktails among warm Gulf breezes. Savor the sunshine on our 8th-floor Resort Pool on Vista Terrace, and work out in our complimentary Hyatt StayFit Gym. Take a break from the day’s events with a massage at Sandava Spa, or a barefoot stroll on the adjacent beach. A stone’s throw away you will find exciting fishing, boating and water sports.
The Pinellas County Osteopathic Medical Society, in conjunction with the Hillsborough County Osteopathic Medical Society, Florida Osteopathic Medical Association, and Florida Academy of Osteopathy, is pleased to announce their sponsorship of the 28th Annual Osteopathic Winter Seminar and National Clinical Update on January 18 – 21, 2017. The seminar will be held at the beautiful Hyatt Regency on Clearwater Beach, Florida.
In conjunction with this conference, we are offering several ways for businesses to provide educational material about their products to the osteopathic physicians, hospitals, associate and advocate members, and other society supporters who will be attending the conference. (Anticipated attendance is 400+)
Please take a moment to review this material to see how you might participate. Then return the proper form with your payment to be assured that your interests will be met as per your request.
Invitations to this seminar are being sent to all members of the Florida Osteopathic Medical Association as well as other osteopathic medical groups nationally. A highlight of the four day event will be the “Exhibit” area that will also be used for the serving of refreshments during the scheduled break periods. There will be a special ribbon cutting ceremony to open the exhibit hall. On Friday, January 18th, we will have a luncheon for exhibitors in the Harbor Room that will include door prizes.
I sincerely hope you will want to participate in this annual event and show your interest and support for the Osteopathic Medical Societies who have joined together for this venture. You may register online for exhibitor space.
