Article:

This year's conference was themed: Redefining and Redesigning Healthcare Powered by Simulation! Over 3000 delegates attended the Texas-based meeting with an extraordinary array of conference formats and 840 exhibitors. The conference has one of the largest exhibitions of education-oriented simulators and related resources. An important feature of the meeting is the keynote presentations delivered by talented individuals outside of the simulation field. The presentations are often provocative and get delegates thinking and talking - drawing relevance for themselves and their work. One of the highlights this year was a talk given by prolific author, Sir Ken Robinson whose expertise is in innovative approaches to school age education, especially related to promoting creativity. There were workshops and posters on every conceivable topic related to healthcare simulation practice. This year's conference also included a 5km run and the President hosted a ball.
