This is a call to all Pacific Dental Conference attendees to consider taking on a key role at the conference by becoming a Host to one

of our over 100 speakers. Is there a speaker at the conference whom you would like to meet? Becoming a Host provides a perfect

opportunity for you to communicate with your favourite presenter!

The PDC has a reputation among speakers for its hospitality and this is mostly due to the Hosts who help make the speaker’s experience

in Vancouver a pleasant one. It’s a rewarding experience with some perks! If you agree to be a Host, you will be credited your registration

fee following the conference.

What exactly does a Host do?

Hosts are the liaisons between the Pacific Dental Conference and the speakers and have the prime responsibility to ensure their stay

and presentation at our meeting is a positive experience. Duties of a host include:

• introducing your speaker at the presentation

• monitoring the presentation

• accompanying your speaker to breakfast or lunch in the Speaker’s Lounge • thanking the speaker at the end of their presentation

A full Host Package is sent to you well in advance of the conference with detailed information on the duties of a Host. In addition to this,

the Pacific Dental Conference holds a Host Wine & Cheese Reception just prior to the conference where you will have the opportunity

to meet other Hosts, have a tour of the Vancouver Convention Centre and receive a verbal overview of the tasks ahead of you.

Interested?

Memorial Lecture

As the founding Chairman of the BC Dental

Meeting, Dr. Robert Hicks started the

meeting format that evolved into today’s

Pacific Dental Conference. In 1988, he said

“While the quality of the scientific program

the valuable time we set aside to attend

continuing education events, we should

never lose sight of the importance of the

social contact we enjoy when we attend

[the Pacific Dental Conference]”.

This philosophy has continued to

foster the growth of the Pacific Dental

Conference to the current day.

It is with respect that we have dedicated

a lecture to honour the experience and

expertise that guided the meeting through

its developing years.
