Top 50 Medical Meeting Professional Attendance Increases 0.64%

FIME Show, a medical tradeshow based out of Miami, FL, took the top spot in 2012 as the largest reported medical meeting with 54,147 total attendees. In the previous four years, the top spot has been held by either Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) or the Greater New York Dental Meeting (GNYDM), who respectively ranked two and three.

Total reported attendance for these top three events is only separated by 600 attendees, making it a very close group.  Rounding out the top five are two new entrants with the Healthcare Information & Management Systems Society (HIMSS) and the American Dental Association (ADA).

Overall reported healthcare professional attendance increased marginally by 0.64%, marking two years of slight growth in reported top 50 events. However, total reported attendance was essentially flat with a 0.04% average reported increase. The data illustrates that while there may be growth overall in the number of healthcare professionals attending the top 50 medical shows, there is actually a decline in the "other” attendance that comprises the overall total attendance figures. This likely highlights a decline in the number of staff an exhibitor brings to these shows.

The sector that reported the largest number of top 50 shows is dental with a total of seven dental meetings making the top 50. Six of these dental meetings are actually top 15 events.

The Healthcare Convention and Exhibitors Association (HCEA) collects attendance information year round from medical show organizers and releases its annual Top 50 Medical Meetings list as a reference benchmark to highlight attendance trends in the industry’s bellwether medical meetings.
