Appointments With Toronto

Toronto is recognized as the 4th largest medical and biotech community in North America and within the top ten globally. Such a wealth of medical resources makes it easy to find distinguished guest speakers for your event. Toronto is also the headquarters for many Canadian companies, providing ample opportunity for event sponsors.

Breakthroughs like the discovery of insulin; the anti-rabies vaccine; the world's first heart pacemaker; the world's first single and double lung transplants; the isolation of defective genes responsible for muscular dystrophy, cystic fibrosis, Alzheimer's disease, Fanconi's Anemia and breast cancer have helped to establish Toronto as a favourable destination for international medical conventions. The city is also home to the MaRS Discovery District, a not-for-profit organization that connects and fosters collaboration between the communities of science, business and capital.

It's not surprising that three more U.S. based medical associations have chosen Toronto for their international conventions:

• American Psychological Association – 13,500 delegates
• American Head and Neck Society – 2,500 delegates
• International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine – 6,000 delegates
