Not Yet Registered? It's Not Too Late!

When we chose the theme of “Adapt. Transform. Launch.” almost a year ago, we never expected it would apply to the Industry Summit as well as to your PT/MC business! As with nearly everything since the pandemic began, we’ve had to find new ways to provide PTDA’s members with the most valuable benefits of your membership.

The PTDA Virtual Industry Summit really does provide all the benefits you get from the in-person event (without the travel hassles or the buffet line). It’s not your typical virtual meeting or string of back-to-back webinars. 

Virtual Networking Lounges

Join any or all of the many networking opportunities in a virtual lounge that allows you to work the room as you move from table to table, having small group video discussions. With all of the industry’s top executives in one place, this is where you’ll connect with the people you want to see.

One-on-one Private Meetings at MD-IDEX

With limited in-person meetings this year, the virtual MD-IDEX provides you with plenty of one-on-one pre-scheduled appointments with current and potential channel partners. The new matchmaking feature allows you to get meetings with the people you most want to meet with and who are most interested in meeting with you.

Knowledge Sharing with Experts and Industry Peers

The highest calibre of professional knowledge sharing sets the PTDA Virtual Industry Summit apart from all other industry events. Through several different formats, you’ll gather tried-and-true suggestions for challenges you face, thought-provoking insights into the future of PT/MC sales and accurate and reliable forecasts on the PT/MC market and those of your customers.

Have Fun with a Bit of Friendly Competition
The PTDA Foundation Virtual Golf Outing gives you a chance to earn some bragging rights while supporting the PT WORK Force initiative of the PTDA Foundation. Register for the outing, golf between September 21-October 11 and submit your results. Winners will be announced during the Virtual Industry Summit.

Come together as an industry to Adapt, Transform and Launch.  Register now for the PTDA Virtual Industry Summit on October 21-23. With a registration fee set to cover the limited costs and discounts for multiple attendees from the same company, never will this level of industry-specific connection, information and knowledge be more affordable!
