The AATOD Conference serves as a central gathering point for the opioid treatment community and offers significant opportunities for exhibiting companies and attendees to interact with other professionals who are devoted to the treatment of opioid dependence throughout the nation and abroad. The registrants will consist of the decision makers in this field who spend over $1 billion annually treating more than 350,000 patients in opioid treatment programs. In order to provide exhibitors with steady exposure to conference attendees, all continental breakfasts and refreshments breaks will be held exclusively in the exhibit area. An Exhibitor’s Networking Event will be held Monday, October 31st to encourage contact and dialogue between opioid treatment professionals and the exhibiting companies.
