The RSNA 2021 experience
Quibim was delighted to take part in this year’s Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) Annual Meeting. The experience has been an exceptional one. We have got the chance to meet our industry colleagues and partners and exchange the latest findings, trends, knowledge, and experience in the field.
For Quibim, RSNA was one of the most important events of the year. Since the annual meeting had a pause last year because of the global pandemic situation, we have expected that this year will be exceptional and indeed it was. The internal team at Quibim had to plan for the event months ahead to make sure they are covering all the details and to uplift the experience from the previous years.
RSNA 2021 was a hybrid one, which means the events and activities were both presential and virtual. This was a great opportunity for everyone in Quibim to be able to participate and experience the meeting. The theme chosen for this edition was about Redefining Radiology which intends to showcase new ideas and technologies that redefine what it means to work as a radiologist. The convention delivered an amazing program with a multitude of science, education, and CME opportunities for radiology professionals from across the world, with more than 2,000 presenters and more than 300 live educational courses. There were also more than 20,000 attendees and 500 exhibitors.
Quibim was at AI showcase #4135, we participated with a new booth concept fully lighted and branded with our new brand identity. During the week of the exhibition, we have had meetings with different radiologists, KOP, and vendors, the quality of the meetings we had this year has increased dramatically as we have seen more interaction with our team and more interest in the details of the products through the demos we offered and other materials.
On the other hand, our AI-based products were of interest to many companies, and got the chance to discuss important potential partnerships with large vendors and hardware companies. Our FDA Cleared QP-Prostate® product was the star of the show for this year as it triggered the interest of the majority of our visitors.
We got the chance to speak to our industry colleagues and competitors and understand the market closely, we realized that the field can be going through some difficulties which we have noted in some companies that are struggling. But there are also others that are doing exceptionally well and are on the path of constant growth. This for sure is a learning experience for Quibim helping us in the implementation of the growth plan for the upcoming year.
In the end, the experience overall was quite positive. Quibim’s team had a great time in the exhibition and Chicago. We came back home with plenty of stories to tell and ideas for future meetings.
Looking forward to the coming RSNA. See you next time.
