The American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting took place from May 31 – June 4, 2019 in Chicago, IL. ASCO recently released their demographics for 2019 and we are going to compare the numbers from 2018.
In 2019, there was a total of 42,500 attendees, a 4.4% increase from 2018 which had a total of 40,700 attendees. Out of the 42,500 attendees, 34,250 were professionals and 6,216 were exhibitors. The top countries in attendance in 2019 are the United States and China whereas in 2018, it was the US and Canada. This year, 55% of attendees were international while in 2018, 2% of guests were international. It’s clear that the numbers in 2019 have greatly increased since 2018 which is wonderful to see.
People attend the ASCO Annual Meeting every year and these increasing numbers show that more people have come together to meet each other, take in new information, and grow more within their skills and fields. Guests’ roles ranged from oncologists, pharmacists, biologists, researchers, and more.
