The STSA Annual Meeting & Exhibition provides a unique opportunity for industry representatives to connect with hundreds of cardiothoracic surgeons. And due to the family-oriented nature of the STSA Annual Meeting, Orlando-area meetings are especially popular and successful for the Association. The last time that STSA held its Annual Meeting at a Walt Disney World® property, registration was 15% higher than the most recent five-year average.

STSA members and meeting attendees welcome the opportunity to interact with exhibitors both in the Exhibit Hall and during social events.

  • Over 90% of STSA 61st Annual Meeting attendees reported that they visited the Exhibit Hal in 2014.
  • 86% of attendees reported in 2014 that they play a personal role in the buying process for surgical equipment and/or services at their home institution.
  • Nearly 13% of attendees reported having the final say in surgical equipment and/or services buying decisions.
