Your Guide for Attending Conventions

By David Kent, LMT, NCTMB

This year the two largest professional massage therapy conventions will take place in Orlando, Fla. They are the Florida State Massage Therapy Association (FSMTA) convention on July 8-12 and the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA) convention on Sept. 23-26.

If you haven't already made arrangements to attend, I highly recommend it. Whether you come for a day or the entire event, conventions are a great way to expand your knowledge, meet new friends, talk to manufacturers, sample products, make purchases at discounted prices, and have lots of fun. I've designed an interactive, cut-out checklist to help you set your goals and priorities for the conventions. Download and print out the PDF-formatted convention guide and take it with you to FSMTA and AMTA.


Convention Check List 2 - Copyright – Stock Photo / Register Mark Sanctuary - Enjoy a variety of massage treatments for a nominal fee; 100 percent of the proceeds help support massage therapy research.

Drawings - Numerous drawings take place daily in the exhibit hall during the convention. The prizes range from iPods to tables to gift certificates to much more.

Massage Today giveaways - Don't forget to visit the Massage Today booth, with a chance to win a $500 cash giveaway on two consecutive days during the conventions. The raffle is free to enter, and you must be present in the exhibit hall to win--wearing your free Massage Today t-shirt, of course!

Come learn and have fun! I am looking forward to seeing you, so please take a minute to stop by and introduce yourself!
