SNOMED CT Expo 2020 & October Business Meetings
October 5-9, 2020 - Virtual Sessions
Now we have had a chance to catch our collective breath, SNOMED International would like to express our gratitude to the Community of Practice for making our first-ever virtual SNOMED CT conference a huge success! Whether you were a Business Meeting participant, a SNOMED CT Expo 2020 delegate, speaker, exhibitor or sponsor - your involvement was crucial to such a positive outcome (and a true representation of the global interest in SNOMED CT).
The results at a glance:
- Our biggest Expo ever: Almost 1,900 delegates registered, with 1,195 unique live event attendees (typical Expo registration is in the 300-400 range)
- A truly global event: delegates from 60+ countries (typical Expo is 30+ countries represented). To date, registrants have hailed from countries all over the world, with 34% from the Americas, 40% from Europe, the Middle East and Africa, 22% from Asia Pacific, and the rest from other regions.
- No time-zone or financial barrier to delegate attendance: 16,000 session views so far (live and on-demand); over 28,000 content downloads, and almost 9,000 visits to exhibitor booths.
There was also a strong show of support from those that joined the October 2020 Virtual Business Meetings, including the Open General Assembly and the SNOMED CT for Clinicians sessions. Documents and recordings (including our Community Updates) are located here for your reference.
Virtual Expo sessions and Exhibit Hall available until January 8, 2021:
Did you miss a concurrent session or an exhibitor booth you wanted to attend or explore? You can still access them all. Plus, you can continue to submit questions to presenters via the Q&A tool, or contact exhibitors through the ‘Chat with Us’ function (both will send an email to the appropriate party).
Visit https://snomed.6connex.com/event/sctexpo/login and sign in with your conference credentials. If you didn’t register before the conference, you can still register to access the content.

Nothing replaces interacting with people face-to-face, but we hope you found participating virtually to be a worthwhile endeavour. We highly value your feedback, so if you haven’t done so yet please complete the evaluation survey: https://bit.ly/34Tf5uL
