OLC has various virtual alternatives in place for attendees that may not feel comfortable with in-person meetings yet. We are experienced with online participation using various video streaming and Web conference software. There is also a state-of-the-art broadcast studio, where meetings can be livestreamed or recorded for future use. Learn More about our Hybrid and Virtual Meeting options.

Modified room layouts have been configured to keep attendees spaced out at least 6 feet apart. Social distancing is enforced in all common areas, labs, locker rooms and meeting rooms. A new and separate OLC entrance, with ample signage, has been designated outside the building for all attendees to use while entering and exiting. See more information about our Hybrid Meetings.

Our high ceilings ensure appropriate air quality and our HVAC system uses 100% outside air and MERV 14 filtration.

Yes, face coverings are required to both enter the building and enter the OLC meeting space. We will provide new masks to wear while on-site, which will be discarded upon exiting. All OLC staff wear masks at all times as well.

In addition to routinely sanitizing commonly used surfaces, we have implemented Electrostatic Disinfection. This preventative and forensic spraying uses Multi-Clean Century Q 256 to ensure all surfaces are wrapped with EPA registered, hospital-grade disinfectant.  Download our Preparedness overview.

A complete attendee list is required 24 hours in advance of all events and no entry into the OLC without this information is allowed. Staggered arrival times are assigned, and our concierge meets every guest at the door to confirm identity and ensure that an electronically signed waiver has been submitted

Faculty and attendees can arrive in their scrubs or we offer individually packaged disposable scrubs for lab meetings, distributed upon arrival.

The OLC opened its doors in 1994, on River Road between Higgins Road and Devon Avenue. As demand grew, in 2015 the OLC moved to a new, larger facility in its current location.

The OLC is an ideal venue for corporate and association conferences, annual meetings, sales meetings, formal classroom lectures, symposiums, breakout sessions, seminars, private or corporate meetings as well as medical meetings like bio-skills training, simulated-model workshops, medical device training, continuing medical education meetings, and new surgical product and technique presentations.
