The Annual Tidewater EMS Education Expo will be returning in 2020 and will be composed of multiple tracks covering ALS, BLS, Nurse/Medic and Hot Topics which includes the following topics: Current Trends, Communications, Critical Care, Educator, Medical, Operations, Special Considerations and Trauma. The Expo is scheduled for April 29th to May 3rd 2020.

The Tidewater EMS Education Expo is one of the state's premier educational opportunities for EMS providers and Nurses to obtain continuing education credits and to network with peers. Each year, more than 150 registrants choose from 5 different tracks over the 5-day event.
National and local educators participate to make this event one of the top pre-hospital educational opportunities in the state.

Any person with an interest in participating as an Instructor is encouraged to submit “session” proposals for presentation during the 2020 TEMS EMS Education Expo. Sessions generally run 1 hour. Pre-convention (Wednesday & Thursday) sessions vary in length from 1.5 hours up to 8 hours to allow for Auxiliary course offerings (i.e. ACLS, AMLS). To be considered for the Tidewater EMS Education Expo, please submit a proposal no later than November 29th, 2019. We encourage you to submit more than one topic, since speakers are usually asked to present a minimum of two or three lectures, and include a brief (no more than 150 words) description for each lecture that could be used in a conference brochure. You will be contacted to let you know whether or not your topics meet our needs.
