Let's face it: 2020 probably won't top anyone's list of Best Years Ever. So why not set your sights on the (near) future by registering for the APTA Combined Sections Meeting? This virtual month-long event promises unprecedented access to nearly 200 sessions, 71 live programs, and more than 1,000 poster presentations — all at a very low cost. See ya', 2020.

In response to ongoing coronavirus concerns, APTA recast the country's largest physical therapy conference as a virtual event to be offered throughout February 2021. While the immediacy of an in-person conference will be missed, the online format offers a plus: the ability to attend more sessions than would be physically possible at a typical APTA CSM at an across-the-board discount price that's affordable for everyone.

Here's how it works: Register for the conference any time between now and the end of February, and get access to all recorded content — including some 181 APTA section-sponsored presentations — through the end of March. You can watch what you want, when you want, as many times as you want through Mar. 31. And if you register by Feb. 1, you'll also be able to participate in multiple live events, including Q&A sessions with presenters. Check out our listing of live and on-demand content to see what we mean when we say this year's event will be bigger than ever.

But wait, it gets better: The first 15,000 registrations will receive a free APTA centennial swag box that includes a journal, tumbler, lapel pin, mask, and other cool stuff. And if you register by Jan. 15 you'll receive complimentary access to the APTA Founders' Day Weekend Series of lectures and other programming — a $99 value — and be entered to win one of five $100 VISA gift cards courtesy of HPSO, a conference sponsor and APTA's official provider of professional and personal insurance.
