Attendance Policy

So that we maintain the educational focus of the AAHKS Annual Meeting environment, attendance is open only to the following:

  • Members of AAHKS
  • Nonmember physicians, medical residents, physician assistants, nurses or other licensed healthcare providers in clinical practice or with academic appointments (teaching or research) related to hip and knee care.
  • Non-clinical practice and hospital administrators
  • Invited speakers and presenters
  • Invited media representatives
  • Invited government officials
  • Employees and independent contractors of exhibitors (Please see Exhibitor Central for exhibitor registration information.)
  • Spouses or partners of members may register to attend meals and social events only.

Anyone else, including physicians who are not primarily engaged in direct patient or academic employment, is not eligible to attend the AAHKS Annual Meeting. If you have any questions about eligibility, please contact AAHKS before registering at 847-698-1200 or aahksstaff@aahks.org.

We regret that we cannot accommodate everyone with an interest in attending the Annual Meeting. Those who cannot attend may view the podium abstracts and poster presentations online, and read the presented papers in the Proceedings of the AAHKS Annual Meeting published in the Journal of Arthroplasty.


AAHKS reserves the right to confirm the eligibility of all registrants prior to and at the time of the Annual Meeting, and to cancel registrations and issue refunds to those not meeting the qualifications.

Hotel Room Scam Advisory – Make reservations only with the hotel directly
You may be contacted by phone or email by outside housing companies (Expo Housing Services, Global Elite Travel, National Travel Associates, Travel Group Partners) to secure hotel reservations. These companies are not endorsed, affiliated or working in partnership with AAHKS (even though they may claim as such), and reservations made through these companies for our meeting cannot be guaranteed. Brokers soliciting your business have been known to accept payment without confirming room reservations. If this occurs, the hotel has no obligation to provide you with the accommodations you were expecting. Do not fall victim to this practice. AAHKS has contracted with Hilton Anatole to manage the AAHKS room block for the Meeting, and they are the only source that can guarantee your reservation. Please report any unauthorized solicitations to AAHKS by emailing meeting@aahks.org.

SuperShuttleGround Transportation

Meeting attendees can book the SuperShuttle shared ride shuttle from both airports to the Hilton Anatole. The rate to and from Love Field is $9 each way, and the rate from DFW  is $18 each way. Log in to access the link.
