Does it surprise you to hear that Illinois is the seventh most popular state for overseas visitors, and Chicago is the 10th most popular American city? In 2010, Chicago hosted 1.134 million international visitors; The economic impact of tourism in Cook County (Chicago’s home) alone tops $17 billion, according to the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity, Office of Tourism.
The Chicago Dental Society is proud to welcome many of these international visitors annually at the Midwinter Meeting, especially those who come to share their products in the Exhibit Hall. More than 70 international companies have reserved exhibit space for the 2012 Midwinter Meeting.
We hope you’ll join us in welcoming them to The City of Big Shoulders.
“International companies put an extraordinary amount of work into their plans for traveling across boarders and exhibiting in our country,” said Lisa Girardi, director of Exhibit Services. “But we are so glad that they do, because they bring to the Exhibit Hall new markets.
“The Midwinter Meeting is without borders; our meeting attracts attendees from all over the world, and our exhibition, with the help of our international exhibiting partners, helps to firmly establish the Midwinter Meeting as the International Dental Meeting in the USA.”
