Registration for 2022 Midwinter Meeting is now open
CHICAGO, U.S.: Like myriad other events, the 156th Midwinter Meeting was a virtual one. However, the Chicago Dental Society (CDS) has recently announced that its 157th Midwinter Meeting will return to an in-person format and that registration for the February meeting is now open. The renowned dental meeting will be held at McCormick Place West in Chicago on Feb. 24–26.
“The Midwinter Meeting has a rich tradition of debuting the latest scientific information and cutting-edge products to dental professionals for more than 156 years,” CDS President-elect Dr. Thomas Schneider said in a press release. “After more than a year of virtual meetings, events and social gatherings, we’re very excited to return to the traditional in-person format for the 2022 Midwinter Meeting, ‘A Dental Tradition.’ We deeply missed the camaraderie and reconnection with old friends and colleagues and can’t wait to be back in person at McCormick Place,” he continued.
The Midwinter Meeting is renowned for attracting the premier speakers in dentistry from across the country. The February 2022 event will offer attendees access to over 250 continuing education-accredited courses taught by renowned clinicians and leaders in dental education, and dentists and their teams will have the opportunity to benefit from the latest practice management solutions and evidence-based clinical knowledge. According to CDS, courses can be purchased a la carte, or for CDS members and their dental teams, as a lecture package for $270 (€233) per person.
So far, more than 350 vendors have booked their places for next year, including many first-time exhibitors. The exhibition floor, which spans more than 270,000 square feet, will feature the latest products in dental innovation, and the attendees will be able to engage in special events that will provide fun networking experiences. These include the new Brews & Bargains happy hour and receptions for new dentists and dental students.
“CDS dentists are essential health care workers, and as such, we’re on the frontlines battling infection daily, long before the COVID-19 pandemic and long after,” Dr. Schneider noted. “Much like our commitment to our patients, the health and safety of attendees, vendors and staff is our top priority,” he added.
Owing to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the 2022 Midwinter Meeting will feature enhanced health and safety measures. According to CDS, the organization is working closely with McCormick Place and will follow all federal, state and local health and safety requirements in effect in February.
Finally, CDS strongly encourages all attendees to be fully vaccinated before attending the Midwinter Meeting and noted that everyone attending the event will be required to wear a mask, regardless of vaccination status. Additionally, attendees will be required to sign a COVID-19 waiver.
