We are excited to report that next week is a busy time for conventions in Tampa Bay. From this coming Saturday through next Friday, more than 5,300 delegates will attend meetings and events, which will produce more than 4,600 hotel room nights to create an estimated delegate spending of $2.7 Million.  
 
One of these groups, The American College of Medical Genetics’, will host theirAnnual Clinical Genetics Meeting. It will welcome 1,600 attendees to Tampa Bay, producing 2,300 hotel room nights for an estimated delegate spending of nearly $1.8 million.  Clinical and medical genetics and its integration into healthcare is evolving at a dizzying pace and the 2009 ACMG Annual Meeting is an excellent opportunity for the medical and scientific media to learn firsthand about the latest genetics news of note and what it means for the public and to interact with presenters and attendees from the USA, Canada, and Europe.
 
The ACMG Annual Clinical Genetics Meeting offers four days of presentations, platform sessions, plenary and poster sessions on the latest clinical developments, research, practice and ethical issues in medical and clinical genetics. For more information, please visit www.acmg.net.
