Best Exotic Locations for Medical Conferences

by Tera Tuten on June 26, 2012

Whether it’s at the start of the winter blahs [much] later this year or in the thick of the dreariest parts of early 2013, let’s face it: All other aspects being equal, you’d rather go to a medical conference in a hot, sunny, culturally-fascinating, or otherwise-exotic locale.

Don’t worry: We’re not here to judge if you want to take a peek at the following (and rare on the Internet) list of medical conferences based firstly on location.

That said, keep a sharp lookout if you’re reading this in an office or hallway where your phone or tablet’s in plain sight, then enjoy our guide to medical conferences listed specifically for the desirability of their locations…It’ll be our little secret…

Mediterranean

Distance/travel time from U.S. mainland: 8-11 hoursAverage yearly temperature: 70 ºF (for southern Italy)

What’s the big deal?: Whether it’s Rome, Athens, Cairo, or Monaco, the history, the food, the shopping, the sights, and the warm dry weather when you most need it…need we say more?

Notable conferences/workshops for 2012/2013:Bonus: Being so many time zones away is a great excuse to take a vacation from the daily flow of work email

More Mediterranean medical conferences, meetings, and workshops

Caribbean

Average yearly temperature: 80 ºF

Distance/travel time from U.S. mainland: 3-5 hours

What’s the big deal?: Countless medical conferences taking place in exotic locales for the sake of taking place in exotic locales do so in this part of the world. And why not? From Aruba to the U.S. Virgin Islands, sand & surf are usually just steps away from sessions and workshops here.

Bonus: What happens in the Caribbean stays in the Caribbean (for the most part)

Notable conferences/workshops for 2012/2013:

More Caribbean medical conferences, meetings, and workshops

Florida

Average yearly temperature: 75 ºF

Distance/travel time from U.S. mainland: 1-5 hours

What’s the big deal?: Beaches, rockets, DisneyWorld, warm weather and some of the best entertainment, eats & shopping in America.

Bonus: Modern conference venues in this state are built to get you from your sessions then out to have fun with maximum efficiency.

Notable conferences/workshops for 2012/2013:

More Florida medical conferences, meetings, and workshops

Hawaii

Average yearly temperature: 75 ºF

Distance/travel time from U.S. mainland: 5-9 hours

What’s the big deal?: Beautiful surroundings and a laid-back culture make every other meeting minute spent here seem like a vacation.

Bonus: No U.S. Customs to go through on the way off the continent

Notable conferences/workshops for 2012/2013:

More Hawaiian medical conferences, meetings, and workshops

Cruises:

Average yearly temperature: 65-85 ºF for south Atlantic cruises

Distance/travel time from U.S. mainland: dependant on departure location


Bonus:
As with conferences overseas, it is unrealistic for your workplace to ask you to keep in touch during a conference at sea ; )What’s the big deal?: Unlimited food (and drink, in some cases) entertainment, and the ability to travel to multiple sunny destinations in a self-contained conference facility are a big plus to look forward to. Also, who wouldn’t want to go to a conference that has its own water slide?

Notable conferences/workshops for 2012/2013:

More medical workshop/symposia cruises:
