CREF Product Theaters

CREF Product Theaters (PTs) give you a chance to explore commercial products and services that can shape your work environment, improve your practice, and promote better patient care. At CREF PTs, dine with friends and colleagues and discover the benefits of employing advanced technology, best practices, and specialized services.

Attend CREF Product Theaters to:

  • Gain practical understanding of products and services related to your practice
  • Hear about some of the latest findings in CPB care
  • Observe demonstrations of innovative equipment and technologies
  • Obtain hands-on experience with products related to your profession
  • Hear answers from key experts and industry representatives

PTs are organized independently by their industry hosts, and registered attendees pay no additional charge to attend. Because seating is limited, some CREF Product Theater hosts request pre-registration. See below for descriptions and specific instructions for each PT offered at CREF 2017. And remember to return to this page to learn about PT updates and new links to PT registration sites.
