We can’t keep it a secret any longer! We’re excited to announce that we’ll be attending the 2019 Private Practice Section Conference in Orlando Florida October 30th through November 2nd. We can’t wait to connect with our old friends and, of course, we’re ready to make some new ones.
This year’s conference is being held in the sunshine state. Which reminds us, to remind you, don’t forget your sunscreen! While we’ll be focusing on some of the new innovations in physical therapy and our hot new products, we’re not afraid to have a little fun either.
If you’re planning on attending, please stop by Booth #616 for conference exclusive specials and just to say hi!

Where to Stay
The official conference hotel, the Rosen Shingle Creek, is currently sold out. However, their sister property, Rosen Plaza Hotel is only 2 miles down the road. They’re offering PPS attendees a discounted room rate of $192 a night. Please call 800-627-8258 and use the code 65523. You can find other stay options here. We’ll also be doing a post on the best places to stay, so you’ll have options.
Please keep in mind that there is currently a hotel scam. There are companies who may try to contact you to help make a hotel reservation in Orlando. These companies are NOT sanctioned by PPS, nor are they connected with Rosen Shingle Creek. No representative from the Rosen Shingle Creek Hotel will call you about making a hotel reservation.
While most of the conference is centrally located to the hotel, there are tons to explore in Orlando. Many fun, off-site activities are a short Uber or Lyft ride away. Make a friend and split the fare!
Conference Activities and Events
Orlando has tons of amusement parks, beautiful national parks, an exciting downtown, and tons of delicious restaurants to try. Universal Orlando Parks are currently hosting their Halloween weekend for ALL ages. So, bring your family and make a vacation out of it!
