"Special Sauce" Series - Rather than just broadly cover the evidence for and general steps of each surgical approach, the "special sauce" series features faculty who perform the given surgical approach as their "go to" prolapse repair, and they are going to share all of their "pro tips" that make their versions of the repairs work so well. These lectures will include video-heavy detailed discussions of the true surgical nuance important to these experts.

Surgical Film Fest - Peter Rosenblatt has collected hundreds of interesting edited surgical videos from all over the USA and beyond featuring new techniques and unique approaches to classic surgical techniques. The titles and brief descriptions of the videos will be available, and the audience will vote on which ones they want to view and discuss in a truly interactive way.

Industry Expert Theater - Non-CME lectures by leaders in our field.

AUGS Pavilion - Your Hub for Innovation, Education and Connection
The AUGS Pavilion is the place to network with peers, meet with industry experts, experience education beyond sessions and engage with key leaders in the field. View videos in the Video Center, engage with industry in the lounge area, and connect with faculty and attendees. Breakfast, lunch and refreshments will be available.
