Kestrel Health Information’s inaugural virtual wound conference was met with positive reviews, prompting the group to plan its second conference, to be held this Summer
Atlantic Beach, Florida (April 30, 2020)—Kestrel Health Information, Inc., a firm delivering information and resources to wound care clinicians and device marketers, recently held its first ever virtual wound conference and expo. WoundCon took place on April 2, 2020 and attracted 7,709 industry professionals, exceeding the expectations of conference organizers. And on the heels of the conference’s astounding success, Kestrel Health is looking to host its second iteration of the event in Summer 2020.
The Spring 2020 event’s theme was Learn Today, Apply Tomorrow, and featured over 30 speakers and practitioners offering the latest research and information impacting the wound care sector. The virtual event streamed live to the nearly 8,000 participants, delivering 10 hours of content covering a wide range of topics such as wound staging and documentation, biofilm management, cell-based therapies, and more. Authorized health care professionals participating in WoundCon Spring 2020 attended for free and earned CME credit hours.
“It was an honor to host WoundCon Spring 2020, and the positive feedback we’ve received from the event has been both exhilarating and humbling,” said Jeanne Cunningham, President of Kestrel Health Information, Inc. “Pulling off this conference, and pulling it off successfully, was no easy feat, especially with the COVID pandemic causing global upheaval. The entire Kestrel Health team came together to make this a truly exceptional event, and I am grateful for their teamwork, ingenuity, and never-quit attitudes in bringing this event to fruition.”
In addition to a wide range of virtual informational sessions, WoundCon also provided attendees the opportunity to visit vendors in the virtual exhibit hall. Exhibitors prepared helpful information about their latest products and services, and attendees downloaded product brochures and connected with representatives to learn more via a real-time chat feature.
WoundCon’s platform also allowed attendees the chance to participate in conference-focused games and challenges to become eligible for a number of prizes, and also provided networking opportunities between participants via chat.
Platinum, Gold, and Silver industry partners for WoundCon Spring 2020 included ConvaTec, Endoform, HydroferaBLUE, Organogenesis, MiMedx, Coloplast, Essity, Geistlich Medical, and MolecuLight.
Feedback from conference attendees was positive, with most citing the convenience, affordability due to the virtual nature of the event, and the quality of the speakers as the event’s highlights. For most attendees, the virtual conference came at an opportune time to help them achieve their professional development needs in spite of shelter-in-place and social distancing measures as a result of the COVID pandemic.
Based on the overwhelmingly positive response to the conference, the WoundCon team has their sights set on Summer 2020 and will be offering the conference in the same virtual format as WoundCon Spring 2020. More details will be announced soon by the Kestrel Health team.
“On the heels of our successful Spring 2020 conference, we’re looking forward to Summer 2020 and delivering another valuable and exciting virtual event to wound care professionals,” added Cunningham.
