With more than 75,000 square feet and 600 booths, the exhibit hall is always filled with the latest innovations in dentistry. At the 2016 ASM, the 149th edition of the meeting, there will be more than 300 exhibiting companies displaying and demonstrating new products, services and technology from across the globe. At- tendees will be able to touch, try out and compare the newest materials and technolo- gies virtually side by side. In addition to the latest products, among the exhibit hall’s new offerings this year are a Sports Simulator Zone and a Wellness Zone. A virtual sports zone will be set up in booth No. 2215, where attendees will be able to stop by to test their skills in golf, baseball, hockey and soccer in an interactive, simulated environment. A new, complimentary wellness lounge will enable attendees to explore improved wellness through breathing, meditation and hands-on exercises designed to help with neck, shoulder and lower-back pain. The lounge will feature a variety of oppor- tunities for attendees to check out various sensory experiences. You will be able to learn from experts about five stretches for the neck, shoulders, carpal tunnel and upper and lower back that can relax your body and help you feel revived. Guided meditation will be available to help you achieve a calm state. You can reserve your spot at the registration desk onsite at booth No. 138 at the end of aisle 600. Another option will be to spend some time at the Oxygen Bar for a rejuvenating pick-me-up. Along the same line, also returning this year will be the Relaxation Zone, where attendees will be able to enjoy a complimentary 10-minute neck/ shoulder or foot massage from a registered chair- massage practitioner. The Relaxation Zone will be located at the end of aisles 1900. And once again at ASM16 for those who sign up, the meeting will include two complimentary cocktail receptions on the exhibits floor on Thurs- day, May 5, from 5–6 p.m. and on Friday, May 6, from 4:30–5:30 p.m. Meeting organizers expect nearly 12,000 atten- dees at the ASM’s host location, the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, South Building. Again this year, the Ontario Dental Association will struc- ture the meeting around three guiding concepts: “Connect. Learn. Excel.” Meeting organizers have created an agenda of wide-ranging and topical sessions presented by national and international- ly renowned speakers in a variety of formats. Lec- tures, hands-on workshops and other interactive presentations are designed to deliver high-value knowledge — and C.E. credit. The meeting presents an opportunity to explore one of Canada’s most popular cities during one of the most appealing times of the year: Toronto in spring.
