Planning an event in the medical sector? This emerging healthcare hub might just be your perfect host city.

When putting together a medical conference, you want to give your attendees direct access to the cutting-edge. Home to 31 major hospitals, 15 health education institutions, 81 biotechnology research and development establishments, and an impressive depth of award-winning public and private research, Dallas is where the cutting-edge lives. Just a three-hour flight from anywhere in the continental U.S., Dallas offers the ease of accessibility as well as the opportunity to host your conference at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center Dallas, a venue perfectly suited to large-scale events.

Access to the Experts

Did you know that the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center is home to six Nobel Prize winners? At Parkland Hospital, researchers developed new ways to treat burns that are now being used all over the globe, while the Cooper Center Longitudinal Study of The Cooper Institute has one of the most highly referenced databases on health and fitness anywhere. An impressive roster of speakers from these institutions can set the tone for your entire conference, and make medical professionals quickly click “Register.”

State-of-the-Art Facilities

A successful conference will expose your attendees to the industry’s latest and greatest, and fuel their work back home. In Dallas, you can give them the opportunity to tour facilities such as the new Parkland Hospital, one of the first all-digital hospitals in the U.S., as well as UT Southwestern’s W-shaped William P. Clements Jr. University Hospital. One of the largest training hospitals in the country, Clements University Hospital was thoughtfully designed using input from physicians, nurses, institutional leaders and the community to help ensure day-to-day processes run as smooth as possible.

From learning about advanced treatment techniques from the people that developed them to mingling with the forward-thinking minds of Dallas’ burgeoning biotech industry (powerhouses such as Alcon Laboratories, Essilor USA, Kimberly-Clark and Stryker Communications all call the area home), planning your conference in Dallas is almost becoming a requirement. And the city is more than happy to play host.
