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.
SIM Expo is different than other sim conferences in how we integrate industry - both physically (with booths in the plenary space and immediately outside) and into the program (exhibitors can submit abstracts for certain types of presentations).
Being back in Toronto, we expect many participants 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 largest and interprofessional simulation conference. We have welcomed 250-350 attendees in previous years. Last year in Montréal we welcomed:
- Attendees from 125 different university faculties, colleges, Cégeps, 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);
- 16 professions were represented, with nursing and medicine being the largest.
The detailed prospectus for the 2020 SIM Expo will be available soon. There are opportunities for sponsorship, exhibiting, participating in conference activities, and additional visibility. Check back here soon.
