What You Can Expect from SMS Toronto

We are pleased to share initial details and open registration for SMS Toronto! The SMS 43rd Annual Conference is planned to be a fully in-person conference. 

Key Features:

Conference Sessions: You can anticipate this year’s in-person conference format to be very similar to past in-person conferences, with Workshops, special panel sessions, and the SMS Business Meeting held on Saturday, IG&C Sessions on Sunday morning, and plenary and research presentation sessions on Sunday afternoon-Tuesday. See the Schedule page for the tentative conference agenda! An improved conference mobile app will enrich your in-session experience and help you to connect with presenters and fellow attendees pre- or post-session.  

Receptions and Social Events:  Our conference offers three evening receptions, including a special off-site event at a trendy Toronto venue! IG&C Socials will be held on Sunday evening as a way for attendees to meet fellow members of their Interest Groups and Communities.

Organized and Informal Networking: In addition to informal opportunities to connect during coffee breaks and lunch, we look forward to offering several organized small-group networking events hosted by SMS leaders around various topics of interest to members. Plus, use the conference app to easily schedule your own 1:1 meetings with colleagues between sessions!
