"For both of Focus's 2012 conferences, Focus Spring in Nashville and Focus Fall in Las Vegas, all attendees will be able to bring their significant other totally free of charge - something no other conference offers"
Bob Miglino RRT, MPS, Conference Chairman


We're going all-out to make the Spring Focus Conference in Nashville our best yet; one that will combine a superb educational experience with an incredible entertainment experience. The finest speakers and huge doses of fun, all of which is included in a very reasonable registration fee which remains the same for the 3rd year in a row. And once again, all registered attendees of the Focus Conference may bring their significant-other to the conference totally free of charge, something no other conference offers (no CEUs for this person, however).


Join the 30,000+ respiratory therapists, sleep technologists and critical care nurses who
have already experienced a FOCUS conference and called it
"an outstanding conference" and "a super value".


For 2012, we've expanded our lecture offerings yet again. In fact, there will be over 100 lectures and 5 early-bird breakfast workshops imparting the very latest information in Adult, Pediatric and Neonatal Respiratory Care, as well as in Clinical Sleep Medicine, Critical Care Nursing, The Business of Sleep, Management, Patient Education, Pulmonary Function Testing, Homecare, Pulmonary Rehabilitation and more - a well-rounded agenda with something for everyone. All lectures will be presented by the country’s top pulmonary and sleep MD’s, and by Masters/PhD prepared Therapists, Sleep Technologists and Nurses. All three disciplines will be able to obtain 18 continuing education credits in their respective fields at this conference and additional credits if optional workshops are chosen.

Like to Party?

The 12th Annual FOCUS Conference will provide fun and entertainment the likes of which have never been seen at a medical conference.



We'll also be holding our fourth annual 5-K Run/Walk on Thursday morning, May 10. This race has been a lot of fun ( 200+ participants each year) with every participant receiving a t-shirt and winners receiving cash prizes. Focus thanks Roche Diagnostics for their generous sponsorship of this event for the fourth year in a row.



Our exhibit hall will feature 150+ medical companies and recruiters and will be a "festival" in and of itself with caricature artists, live music, roving impersonators, two incredible receptions with free Hors D'oeuvres, free beer and wine and phenomenal door prizes including a chance to win a 2012 Ford Focus automobile or $10,000 cash - your choice.



join us Thursday night, May 10th for a wonderful evening at the
Grand Ole Opry Music Hall

A special night, open to all registered attendees, their registered significant-others and all other members of their families - completely free of charge.





Affordability Is The Name of The Game

We are proud to say that every aspect of attending this conference, from the registration fee, to the airlines, to the hotel accomodations, even to the entertainment, has been approached from the perspective of affordability for our attendees and our exhibitors.
