AATB Spring Meeting: The Last, But Not the Least
AATB’s ‘Last Waltz’ at the 2013 Spring Meeting in Tucson, Arizona was an event to be remembered. Thank you to our Platinum sponsors Transplant Connect and GSABC for helping to make this conference a success. Approximately 345 participants, exhibitors and sponsors had the opportunity to experience world-class educational sessions and professional development like never before, in addition to meeting our new CEO, Frank Wilton. The new and improved Meeting App was a big hit with attendees, as well! Our exhibitors were positioned along the main foyer, allowing for constant communication and increased lead opportunities. The picturesque backdrop of the Catalina Mountains only added to the enjoyment.
