We have always considered the simulation and healthcare education industries to be an important part of the simulation community in Canada. This comes to life at the SIM Expo, which is a wonderful hybrid of academic conference, industry exhibition, and networking event.
Last year, we made further improvements to engage exhibitors with participants, with great success, which we will continue this year! The Expo will be held at the Hotel Arts, in Calgary (the first time the SIM Expo has been held outside of Toronto). We expect many new faces in the audience from the region, in addition to the attendees from across Canada who join us, year after year.
Who comes to the SIM Expo?
The SIM Expo is Canada's interprofessional simulation conference. We have welcomed 275-350 attendees in previous years. Last year:
- Attendees came from 111 different university faculties, colleges, hospitals, and stakeholder organizations (not including industry);
- Approximately 1/3 were from universities, 1/3 from colleges and 1/3 from hospitals;
- 25% of participants had decision-making authority (VPs, deans, directors, managers);
- 13 professions were represented, with nursing and medicine being the largest.
