    • Hale Koa

     We know its early....but several exhibitors have asked in the past for as much notice as possible.  

    The dates for the 2020 HOA Spring Research Symposium have been set.  We will be hosting the meeting at the Hale Koa for the 3rd strait year and hope that many of you are now familiar with the specifics of shipping to the Hale Koa.  

    Its looks to be the biggest and best event yet.  We will have the same exhibit hall immediately adjacent to the meeting room and again will be offering some unique opportunities to support the HOA and its members.  There will be 2 lunch options on Friday.  On Saturday there is an opportunity to sponsor the Resident Quiz Bowl.  On Saturday night, there is an opportunity to sponsor the Resident Award Dinner.  

    We have a room block reserved at the Hilton Hawaiian Village (hotel adjacent to the Hale Koa).  Please book a room early if you will be coming from off island or want to consider combining a staycation with the event.

    Please look through the options and reach out with any questions.

Cancelled - 35th Annual Combined Orthopaedic Spring Symposium


Unfortunately, it has become impossible to hold the 35th Annual Combined Orthopaedic Spring Symposium due to public health guidance and institutional and state travel restrictions.  We want our meeting to be meaningful and successful for everyone - speakers, exhibitors and participants, and therefore, have decided to cancel the annual symposium on April 24 and 25, 2020.   We hope you will join us in 2021.

For those of you who have paid your exhibitor fees, please contact us directly to let us know how you would like to handle the fees paid.

We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your understanding.

Take care.
