To comply with hotel guidelines, all guests of any Marriott hotel must wear face coverings in all public indoor spaces including hotel restaurants, bars, and public areas as well meeting and event areas including during the workshops. A registration fee is required and a partial reimbursement for the registration fee and/or hotel room may be applicable.


  • October 11-13, we will offer all conference sessions live and pre-recorded in a virtual format during the conference days along with a virtual Exhibit Hall. Tracks include: educators, providers and leadership.
  • The virtual event will be a FREE training event for Georgia EMS providers thanks to our Training Funding Partner: the Georgia Trauma Commission. However, as grant funded spots are limited, there is a $25 reservation fee to reserve your spot. Once you attend the virtual conference, that fee will be applied toward a new GEMSA membership or renewal as applicable. Also, you must be signed up and paid by October 9 in order to participate.
  • A virtual exhibit hall will be available as part of the virtual event. On October 11-12 during select hours, you can visit with exhibitors in their virtual booth, chat with representatives, view product/service materials, and more. This is still a great time to see the latest in products and services for EMS!
  • Giveaways will be available for those who visit the exhibit hall. Watch for more details on what you can win!
  • You need to attend sessions and the exhibit hall, Oct. 11-13, to be eligible for giveaways and other benefits. If needed, you will have an additional 30 days after the event to view the classes or other breakout sessions on your own time. This allows you to get additional CE hours from this event. CE certificates will be awarded.
  • If you have made a hotel reservation, you are able to modify or cancel that reservation without penalty by calling the hotel at 912-233-7722. Please do this at your earliest convenience.
