50th Annual Critical Care Congress

COVID-19 has changed our lives, and the Society of Critical Care Medicine (SCCM), its members and our trusted industry partners are rising to the challenge at every turn. In this spirit, SCCM is adjusting the format of the 2021 Critical Care Congress to reflect the demands and realities of our new world. SCCM has come to the difficult decision to postpone and reschedule all in-person meetings, including the Critical Care Congress.

SCCM is celebrating its 50th anniversary, and we had hoped to celebrate this milestone together during the annual Congress you have come to know and trust for decades. In our 50 years, we have never been afraid of change, and we are more committed than ever to our mission to improve care for the critically ill and injured.

Our reformatted educational program promises to deliver the same high-quality opportunities as those associated with the Critical Care Congress, adapted to the needs of critical care professionals and industry partners in the COVID-19 era.

We value the partnerships we have nurtured over the past five decades and are excited for the innovative advertising, sponsorship, and virtual exhibit opportunities we will have to offer. This new format will unlock new opportunities for our industry partners, likely with unprecedented access to targeted groups of highly engaged participants. We know this new format will raise a lot of questions and we are working to provide more details as soon as they become available.
As we finalize the virtual platform the FAQ sheet is evolving and will be available later this summer. If you would like to help shape this new frontier, we are putting together an industry roundtable and your input is welcome. Please contact Colleen McNamara directly. We are thankful for your support as we look to achieve a shared mission to improve critical care worldwide and look forward to working on a successful Critical Care Congress.

Exhibit at the Society of Critical Care Medicine’s (SCCM) 50th Critical Care Congress and be a part of this exciting milestone! This Congress is sure to be SCCM’s most exciting as we host events honoring progress, technology, and changes in critical care.
Record attendance is anticipated, which means exhibitors will have great opportunities to acquire and educate the most qualified leads. Share your newest technology, products, services, and career opportunities with the largest gathering of multiprofessional critical care thought leaders from all over the world.
