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.
In the past two years, we made further improvements to engage exhibitors with participants, with great success, which we will continue this year! Being in Montréal, 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 250-350 attendees in previous years. Last year in Calgary (the first time we held the conference outside of Toronto):
- Attendees came from 94 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 or emergency services;
- 30% of participants had decision-making authority (VPs, deans, directors, managers);
- 15 professions were represented, with nursing and medicine being the largest.
The detailed prospectus for the 2019 SIM Expo is now available! There are opportunities for sponsorship, exhibiting, participating in conference activities, and additional visibility.
