Convention Guide

All NATA 2019 registrants have the option to receive a convention guide. This printed guide contains general information, a programming overview, a full schedule of the educational content and a list of exhibitors. You’ll also find maps for the convention center, AT Expo and relevant hotels.


Pre-Conference Career Development  Workshop

Held annually the day prior to first official day of convention educational programming, Ossur sponsors the NATA Performing Arts Pre-Conference Career Development Workshop. This workshop will feature a lecture and hands-on learning. Pre-registration required.



The abstracts and learning objectives for educational events are detailed in the event descriptions within the NATA 2019 app. You can sort through the abstracts by date or by track, or you can search by keyword.


Free Communications Program

One of the top attractions for the NATA Clinical Symposia & AT Expo is the Free Communications program (more casually known as Free Comm), a program sponsored by the NATA Research & Education Foundation that gives athletic trainers a forum for distributing new research and clinical case studies. To date, the program has provided almost 5,000 poster and oral presentations.


Distinguished Scholar Presentations

Exchange lecturers from other sports medicine associations will speak about their research. The NATA Foundation’s Medal for Distinguished Athletic Training Research, New Investigator Award and Doctoral Dissertation Award and Free Communications Student Award winners will also be formally recognized at this two-hour session.
