The IPTA and WPTA leadership and staff are working to follow up in response to this unprecedented cancellation of our 2020 REVITALIZE Conference & Expo.

We ask for your patience as we work through this process.

Please check this webpage periodically for added updates and information.


Why is REVITALIZE being cancelled?

As we monitor the COVID-19 (coronavirus) there have been growing concerns over the spread of the virus. Many employers, universities and hospital systems are enacting time off and travel restrictions which would greatly impact people traveling to St. Charles, IL—as well as traveling home.

We also recognize that it is hypocritical for a health care association to be encouraging people to participate in a large gathering when the most consistent prevention strategy being promoted by health professionals is to avoid them.  Right now, family and work obligations need to take priority as everyone assesses their personal situations and works to create the safest environment for their family, staff and patients

Will REVITALIZE be rescheduled?

Our goal is to provide truly exceptional educational programming, opportunities to network and explore career opportunities.

The IPTA is very hopeful that we can reschedule our full conference and associated events for dates later this fall.

The WPTA is still planning to host their fall conference on October 1-2, 2020 at the Glacier Canyon Lodge Conference and Convention Center - Wisconsin Dells, WI.

Will I receive a refund for my registration?

For anyone who had registered for the REVITALIZE conference or any of its related events (Oxford debate, Table for 2 dinner, Honors & Awards Banquet), a full refund will be issued back to the method of payment in which it was purchased. Please allow staff the next 30 days to process all refunds. It may take 1-2 billing cycles for it to appear on your credit card statement. If paid by check, a check will be mailed to you.

What if I made a hotel reservation at the Q Center?

03/25/20 Update: The Q Center is canceling all hotel reservations. Questions? please contact the Q Center at (630) 377-3100.

It is up to YOU to cancel your hotel reservation with the Q Center. You may need to provide the Q Center with your Acknowledgement # or Hotel Confirmation # with your cancellation request.

You may be able to manage your existing registration by visiting here:
With questions, or to cancel over the phone, please call the Q Center at (630) 377-3100.

Please note that your credit card may be charged if you fail to cancel your hotel reservation prior to April 20th.

I was counting on REVITALIZE for earning my CE prior to my Illinois license renewal this fall, what other opportunities are available to earn CE?

We recognize that not only the REVITALIZE conference, but other regional and national educational sessions are cancelling, and this may create a hardship for members who are preparing to renew their Illinois PT license.   The IPTA is ramping up our virtual live and recorded CE options and will be offering them FREE to Illinois members.  This will include programming that will meet Illinois’ 3 hour ethics and 1 hour sexual harassment prevention training requirements.

I was a poster presenter - will my research abstract still be posted?

Despite the cancellation of the meeting, poster abstracts that were going to be on display at REVITALIZE, have been posted here:

What happens to the WPTA’s annual membership meeting and the IPTA’s Assembly of Representatives?

Both the IPTA and WPTA will be working to reschedule these annual events and information will be provided to members as soon as it is available.

What about the IPTA’s Annual SIG Meetings?

03/25/20 Update: IPTA's Student SIG will hold their annual meeting on Wednesday, April 29th. Click here to learn more and RSVP.

IPTA's GeriSIG will hold their annual meeting on Tuesday, May 12th. Click here to learn more and to RSVP.

The Illinois Student, Geriatric, and Clinical Educator SIGs will be rescheduling their annual meetings to take place at a later date, with virtual attendance being available. We will continue reviewing next steps with a clear focus on these meeting priorities and will keep our SIG members informed of any updates within the coming weeks.
