The American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) Midyear Clinical Meeting & Exhibition has been listed as 1 of 2018's top trade shows in the United States, marking its 4th consecutive appearance on the Trade Show News Network (TSNN) Top 250 Trade Shows list.

The list presents the country's top 250 trade shows held last year, ranked by net square footage. The recently released list shows that ASHP Midyear rose 5 spots, from No. 157 to No. 152, since its last appearance with the Consumer Electronics Shows (CES) topping the list.

Held in December 2018 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, CA, the 53rd Midyear Clinical Meeting was attended by more than 25,000 pharmacy professionals, students, and exhibitors from around the globe.

The 3-day event featured Earvin “Magic” Johnson as the meeting’s keynote speaker, and included a wide variety of activities such as educational programming, scientific sessions, poster presentations, and job placement services.

“We are thrilled by this important recognition and are so proud of ASHP’s team of over 200 staff members who all contribute to making the largest meeting of pharmacists in the world a spectacular experience for our more than 25,000 attendees each year,” said Paul W. Abramowitz, PharmD, ScD (Hon.), FASHP, CEO of ASHP, in a prepared statement.
