The SMACC experience begins long before the conference starts, with a
registered delegate function on the website that allows you to become part of
“smacc-networks”. The networks cater to academic, social, artistic, sporting
and lifestyle interests and are aimed at bringing delegates together. Utilising
dating site technology you can find new friends from the world-wide critical
care community who share your interests. You may want to talk shop or to get
a group together to perhaps visit a museum, go for a run together or go to a
Chicago Cubs game.
Once you check into The SMACC Hotel, Sheraton Towers, you will
immediately be drawn into the SMACC festival experience. The pre-
conference workshops will be held at the Sheraton and it will be an off-
campus SMACC hub with daily bus transfers to McCormick Place.
Finally registration for the conference is fully inclusive of all coffee breaks, lunch
and both the Welcome Reception and the Gala Dinner. This will create ample
time to network with colleagues and soak up the atmosphere.
The SMACC Gold Conference in 2014 not only brought together a diverse
group of critical care practitioners (Emergency Physicians / Intensivists /
Anaesthetists / Rural and Pre-Hospital Specialists / Critical Care Nurses and
Paramedics) it united the biggest names from FOAM websites from around
the world.
In June 2015 ‘SMACC Chicago’ will be even better.
You spoke and we listened
• Intensive care and Anaesthetic content for Critical Care
• A fifth concurrent session to make your choices even harder
• More critical care Paediatrics
• A huge range of pre-conference workshops
• More big name speakers from around the world
• An expanded SMACC Bar and lounge
• Child care facilities on site
• Sonowars reborn
• A huge exhibition hall where lunch and tea breaks are provided FREE to
delegates in order to enhance the networking opportunities
SMACC Chicago is a not for profit venture and all the content will be recorded
and released in serial fashion as part of FOAM in the same way as the
SMACC Gold content is currently being released. If you haven’t got into the
spirit of SMACC already check out the content on the SMACC Media tab of
the website, on the iTunes channel or via all the listed affiliated websites.
We invite you to register for SMACC Chicago and get involved now.
Submit an online abstract, make a video for the #EVO competition, register
for Sonowars and get in early to secure one of the limited spots on the pre-
conference workshops. Follow us on Twitter @smaccteam (#smaccUS). Help
us shape #smaccUS by joining the conversation.
We can’t wait to see you all in Chicago in June 2015.

McCormick Place is the premier convention facility in North America.
Located just minutes from downtown Chicago, McCormick Place attracts
close to 3 million visitors each year. McCormick Place is comprised of
four state-of-the-art buildings: the North and South Buildings, the West
Building and Lakeside Center. Together, they form what many consider to
be the economic engine that powers the entire convention and tradeshow
industry. McCormick Place is committed to creating a great experience for
every person, every time!
SMACC will be held in the Lakeside Center, with the plenary sessions
taking place in the Arie Crown Theater – a first-class theatre with a capacity
of over 4000.
Location
With towering skyscrapers overlooking tulips on The Magnificent Mile,
Opening Day baseball at Wrigley Field, and a stunning Millennium Park
beginning to bloom — springtime in Chicago buzzes with energy and
excitement.
Whether you’re visiting Chicago for business or pleasure, you can expect
to find world-class dining, attractions, entertainment, and hotels and
accommodations here in the largest and most-visited city in the Midwest.
If you’re looking for things to do in Chicago, look no further!
Enjoy the great outdoors with a sightseeing tour on the river boats, a play
date with the animals at Lincoln Park Zoo or a scenic ride on the Ferris
Wheel at Navy Pier. Indoors, unwind at a leisurely pace at a luxurious spa,
jet set through spectacular downtown shopping malls or cozy up to a bar
for some craft cocktails. In Chicago, dining is an activity in itself, with over
5,500 restaurants that line the culinary landscape and boast star chefs and
endless accolades.
The summer season is ripe for arts and culture as well. Immerse yourself
in the vibrant theater scene at Steppenwolf, Goodman or Broadway in
Chicago. Explore museums and galleries of every variety, like the beloved
Shedd Aquarium and esteemed Art Institute of Chicago. And take in
sensational performances — from live music, comedy, dance and opera.
