So its been a couple of years since a similar thread was posted. I am hoping to attend more conferences this next year and I won't be surprised if more conferences have an online option. What are the conferences that you have heard about or are looking to attend for the 2021 calendar year that are EMS/CCT/HEMS related? I would love to have a "master list" that contains links so forum members can easily go to the conference pages and decide if the information looks interesting or relevant to them. This is my list so far:

FAST21: https://www.fastsymposium.com

EMS World Expo: https://www.emsworldexpo.com

AMTC: https://aams.org/events/amtc/

EMS Today: https://www.emstoday.com/

CCTMC: https://cctmc.net

CFED: http://www.cvent.com/events/cfed-co...-3d2d0b1f71f043f28bbe04d3cd70edff.aspx?dvce=1

Almost every state has its own EMS conference. Two of the big ones that I am hoping to get to (if they don't get cancelled again) is Connecticut's EMSPro and Virginia's EMS symposium. I've been to both before and they did not disappoint. I'm also hoping to go to Wisconsin's EMS Expo, as I have heard good things about it. And Alaska's Southern Region Emergency Medical Services Council - Symposium because I have never been to Alaska, and would make a vacation of it.

Truth be told, I've been to the JEMS/EMSTODAY conference, and while it had some good speakers, I thought it was not worth the price tag. I've also attended the Atlantic City Trauma Symposium, Mass Gathering Medicine Summit, and a couple other specialty shows, and while I learned some stuff and enjoyed the experience, I probably won't be back due to the low return on investment.

A lot of the regional conferences have equally top-notch speakers, without the overhyped expenses.

If things go well in 2021, I'm speaking at several, including EMSpro in CT. (I can see mom and dad!) and a handful of others. I hope to see some of you out there!

it's been a few months since this thread started, but my proposal to speak at EMSWorld down in Atlanta was accepted! and I will be able to attend EMSPro in CT, so that should be a good time.

I also might be going to the Vital Signs conference in New York (I think, I'm not entirely sure yet), but will be doing a lot of travelling in October and November.

I’ve turned down several speaking invites that I was accepted for and then told it was virtual. I’m not into doing the virtual presentation thing. I’ll wait til we’re all back in person
