While outstanding clinical education is important, we at OEC also feel that the experience is equally important. We design conferences to allow attendees flexibility in getting outstanding clinical continuing education and the opportunity to enjoy the facilities and surrounding area. In addition to securing golf and spa credits for attendees, we also plan lectures to ensure enough time to enjoy Scottsdale and surrounding areas, lay back and relax, and make travel home easier with an early end time. OEC has been able to secure phenomenal in-season rates at the renowned JW Marriott Scottsdale Camelback Inn Resort & Spa, which is a short 15 minutes from Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport. The educational event is strategically timed between Valentine’s Day and Presidents Day for those who wish to spend special times in a wonderful place. Take advantage of the discounted room rate for Valentine’s Day and/or Presidents’ Day.
