SMACC DUB attracted 2,000 specialists in social media and critical care to The CCD over three days in June 2016.
SMACC is a health promotion charity based on the philosophy of FOAM (Free Open Access Medical education). The program addresses important clinical issues delivered by key academic speakers while also bringing this traditional format into the 21st century with live twitter feeds, podcasts, vodcasts, live streaming and digital e-poster displays. SMACC DUB 2016 was the fourth conference having previously been held in Sydney and Chicago.
"Given the overwhelming response to SMACC and the growth in its international popularity, the move to Europe in June 2016 has been delegate-demand driven. The choice of Dublin as the host city was facilitated by it being a popular destination for travellers, a transport hub for both the USA and Europe, having a state-of-the-art convention centre and the strong connections from the Critical Care website community based locally in Ireland and the UK."
