As reported in the Sunday edition of the Express News, last week the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center hosted the American Dental Association’s (ADA) Annual Meeting from Oct. 9-14th.
One of our largest events, ADA had over 20,000 attendees and utilized every space at the Convention Center. The exhibit floor spanned all four halls with a total of 550 exhibits and required over 1.5m pounds of freight transported in and out of the building.
Their meeting even utilized the Alamodome for their Opening General Session which was attended by 10,000 participants who gathered to hear Keynote Speaker, former President George W. Bush.
But the ADA Annual Meetings contribution to San Antonio was more than just their economic impact, the ADA also conducted a local community outreach to provide free dental care to over 1,200 through their Mission of Mercy program.
