First started in 2008, the Travelers Conference (commonly called “TravCon”) is an annual event dedicated solely to healthcare travelers. The conference was started by travelers for travelers, as a way to bring people together and increase transparency and knowledge within the industry.
This year’s conference is September 9th-10th at Bally’s Las Vegas Hotel & Casino. However travelers will start arriving as soon as this week and unofficial events begin as early as Friday!
It’s the largest gathering of its kind in the industry and we look forward to it all year long!
Who attends the Travelers Conference?
This year the conference will be attended by over 1,500 traveling professionals. Whether you’re a Registered Nurse who has completed 30 assignments or a Surgical Technologist searching for your very first, you’ll find yourself right at home. There are special designations for “veteran,” “newbie,” and even “dreamer” attendees.
And it’s not just for nurses! The conference has gone out of its way the last few years to ensure that Allied travelers are well represented. They make up about 20% of the crowd.

Why do people attend?
Travelers come to the conference for a wide variety of reasons. The conference itself is jam-packed with information about traveling, industry trends, and clinical info. The keynote speakers are typically well-known personalities ready to inspire you. And the Expo hall is full of networking opportunities and swag galore!
All that is great, but what many travelers say they enjoy most is having face-to-face time with other people who truly understand the trials and tribulations of the travel lifestyle. There’s nothing like gathering with 1,500 of your closest friends to cut loose!
