American Massage Conference

What is the American Massage Conference?

The American Massage Conference (AMC) is North America’s NEWEST exhibition of massage products, continuing education and new business opportunities for therapists of all disciplines.

  • In 2011, the American Massage Conference (AMC) took place May 20-22nd at the Capitol Conference Center Atlanta Georgia.
     
  • In 2012, the American Massage Conference (AMC) took place May 20 – 22nd at the Town and Country Resort in San Diego California.

Annually, the American Massage Conference will be offered twice in both San Diego and Atlanta.

The inaugural massage conference will featured over 50 exhibitors, continuing education in the forms of 1 hour, 3 hour or 1 or 2 day workshops, a Saturday night reception and LIVE MUSIC dance party in the hotel.

Along with the 2 exhibit halls AMC provided 1 hour presentations on products/services/courses, and also 3 hour workshops. All education was approved by NCBTMB and Florida State Board of Massage Therapy for CEU credits.  On Sunday morning, AMC hosted a free student seminar and in the afternoon, a job fair. This was a special opportunity for those emerging into the field of massage and bodywork to meet legendary massage experts and participate in discussions, workshops and meet other therapists.

 


 

The AMC is organized by Lorna Pasinato, Scott Dartnall, Monica Forchielli and Robyn Green, who have been running the Canadian Massage Conference for 3 years, which is Canada’s LARGEST exhibition of massage products, education and business opportunities. They are joined in their American Conference by Angie Patrick of Massage Warehouse. Angie is a priceless addition to the team. She brings her knowledge, contacts and mostly passion for the massage industry with her on this quest, the American Massage Conference aims to be the most successful American Massage Conference ever.
