Expect more than 150,000 square feet of every conceivable product and service in respiratory care. See more distributors, manufacturers, pharmaceuticals, and service organizations. Expect more exhibitors than ever before with more cool ideas, products, and trends.

There will be more social activities…more awards…more to see and do than ever before.

When all is said and done, we’ll pack more into four days than you could dream possible.

Disclosure of Faculty Conflict of Interest

  • The AARC remains strongly committed to providing the best available evidence-based clinical information to participants of this educational activity and requires an open disclosure of any potential conflict of interest identified by our faculty members.
  • It is not the intent of the AARC to eliminate all situations of potential conflict of interest, but rather to enable those who are working with the AARC to recognize situations that may be subject to question by others.
  • All disclosed conflicts of intesest are reviewed by the AARC Program Committee to ensure that such situations are properly evaluated and, if necessary, resolved.
  • The AARC educational standards pertaining to conflict of interest are intended to maintain the professional autonomy of the clinical experts inherent in promoting a balanced presentation of science.
  • Through our review process, all AARC CRCE activities are ensured of independent, objective, scientifically balanced presentations of information.
  • Disclosure of any or no relationships will be made available on-site during all educational activities.
