Leadership Summit

AORN Expo 2021 | August 7-10, 2021 | Orlando, FL

Let’s face it. Being a leader is hard. Being a transformational leader in the ever-evolving, complex world of perioperative nursing is even more challenging. There’s no way around that. But there’s things that can help. Like taking a few days to invest in your professional development and connecting with like-minded peers to share challenges, solutions, and simply re-energize.

The Leadership Summit at Global Surgical Conference & Expo is your opportunity to reset and grow with the best and brightest perioperative leaders. We’re bringing together top thought-leaders to share perioperative updates, proven management strategies, and showcase cutting-edge technologies and solutions.

The program is designed for emerging leaders and experienced executives looking to:

  • Focus on the management and business side of perioperative nursing
  • Network with leaders from the nation’s top healthcare systems
  • Hear from industry experts on critical issues facing the surgical suite
  • Connect with leading medical supply companies and service providers
