Get excited, TravCon 2022 is around the corner! More than 1,500 Nursing and Allied healthcare professionals travel across the country each year to meet other travelers, network with agencies (like LRS Healthcare), have the opportunity to renew certifications, and continue their education through a variety of sessions.
The legendary conference will take place at the Paris Hotel in Las Vegas September 18-21. While there are plenty of hotels on the strip, the most popular options are the Paris Hotel (where the conference is), Bally’s (which is connected to the Paris Hotel), the Flamingo hotel (15 minutes walking distance), and if you bring your RV the Oasis Las Vegas Resort is 20% off for those attending the conference.

TravCon has a lot to offer, and here is what you need to get the most out of the 2022 conference.
