KEMSA Conference & Expo

The Kansas Emergency Medical Services Association (KEMSA) is hosting its 2019 KEMSA Conference & Expo at the Kansas Star Event Center in Mulvane (south of Wichita), August 8-11, 2019.  Our blend of speakers and the variety of the classes offered make this conference one you won’t want to miss!

Who Should attend? - EMS Providers of all levels, Educators, Managers/Supervisors, Service Directors, Medical Directors, Nurses, and others involved in the EMS Profession.

Highlights for 2019:

Mobile Event Guide/App - We strongly encourage you to download our 2019 mobile guide (when available) to enhance your experience at the 2019 KEMSA Conference & Expo. You’ll be able to plan your day with a personalized schedule, browse exhibitors, view maps, and get general show information. Also speakers, photos, biographies, handouts, and more are located in the mobile guide!

Location - Our location at the Kansas Star Event Center in Mulvane, Kansas allows us the opportunity for more educational classes, evening entertainment, lunch options on-site, as well as a large number of hotel rooms for our attendees. (Hotel rooms do sell out, so book early!)

Honoring Our Own - We will hold our annual Honoring Our Own awards banquet featuring a Table of Honor on Saturday, Aug. 10. Tickets for the banquet are not included in a conference registration, and must be purchased if you want to attend.

Make award nominations at: www.kemsa.org/Awards by June 15.

Large Exhibit Hall - The KEMSA Exhibit Hall is a valuable part of your conference education. It features more than 80 exhibitors and allows you the opportunity to see and try out many of the newest EMS products on the market, pick up some freebies, and make business contacts that could benefit your department. All our exhibitors, including ambulances, are in one room inside allowing you the opportunity to visit them all in one convenient place!

Continuing Education Categories – While the focus of quality clinical education has remained the same over the years, KEMSA has also worked hard again to provide you with educational sessions that help you meet some of the required components in the Kansas Continuing Education Plan. Each session has a corresponding CE category (and sub-topics as appropriate) listed on the schedule, so you can determine which sessions you want to attend to help fulfill some of your hours. If you still need categories and sub-topics to fill your requirements, check out the KEMSA CORE Conferences being held twice a year.

Lots of CE Hours – Another important element of the 2018 Conference is that we have kept the evening educational hours and early morning sessions for those who want them or need more hours. If you attend all the sessions from August 8-11, 2019, you have a chance to earn a total of 28 hours in just 3.5 days! This includes the sessions and opportunities including:

  • 8-hour pre-conference workshops on Thursday
  • a 2-hour earlybird session on Thursday evening included in a full conference registration for those who want to arrive earlier on Thursday
  • a 2-hour educational session on Friday evening
  • two early morning sessions on Saturday & Sunday

If you need hours, this is the place to get them at an affordable rate! And, you can still enjoy the evening entertainment once the evening sessions are over!

Don't forget these great tips about attending our annual Conference and Expo:

  • Come prepared for cool rooms. The air conditioner at the hotel works well, and should not be discounted by the faint of heart.
  • Wear good walking shoes.  The exhibit hall is located in the arena attached to the event center, but be prepared to walk back and forth during breaks.
  • Be ready to mingle. The conference is a great time to meet fellow EMS providers and share ideas.
  • Bring a bag for the goodies. Daily door prizes, plus give-a-aways from various exhibitors means a lot of stuff to carry.
