Come to Chicago for SMACC 2015!
Come to Chicago for SMACC 2015!



SMACC Gold was a phenomenal success, attracting almost 1300 delegates and doubling in size in only its second year. The decision to take SMACC internationally, to Chicago, is the next step in this exciting experience.

The SMACC Gold conference not only brought together a diverse group of critical care practitioners (Emergency Physicians / Intensivists / Anaesthetists / Rural and Pre-Hospital Specialists / Critical Care Nurses and Paramedics) it united the biggest names in online medical blogs and websites from around the world.

In June 2015 ‘SMACC Chicago’ will be even better. We are expecting over 2500 delegates and in response to your feedback from 2014 there is more:

Intensive Care and Anaesthetic content for critical care
A fifth concurrent session to make your choices even harder
More critical care Paediatrics
A huge range of pre-conference workshops
More big name speakers from around the world
An expanded SMACC Bar and lounge
Child care facilities on site
Sonowars reborn
A huge exhibition hall where lunch and tea breaks are provided FREE to delegates – to enhance the networking opportunities
The McCormick Place Convention Centre in Chicago offers state of the art facilities and a theatre that feels like it was built for the SMACC experience. There is accommodation onsite and surrounding accommodation in the heart of Chicago is only a few minutes by bus.

SMACC Chicago is a not for profit venture and all the content will be recorded and released in serial fashion as part of FOAM in the same way as the SMACC Gold content is currently being released. If you haven’t got into the spirit of SMACC already check out the content on the SMACC Media tab here on the website or on the iTunes channel or via all the listed affiliated websites.

Submit an online abstract, make a video, register for Sonowars and get in early to secure one of the limited spots on the pre-conference workshops.

Follow us on Twitter @smaccteam (#smaccUS). Help us shape #smaccUS by joining the conversation.

We can’t wait to see you all in Chicago from 23 – 26 June 2015.
