Question: How many attendees can we expect at our satellite symposium?
Answer:

Unfortunately, because there are so many variables that determine attendance (i.e. topic, day, time of day, other non-affiliated events, etc.), IDWeek cannot provide you with an estimated attendance.  IDWeek does not track attendance in affiliated events.  In 2019, surveyed affiliated event hosts reported 185-400 participants in attendance.  The 2019, organizers sent between one and three preshow mailers to the registration list.

In 2018, surveyed satellite symposia organizers reported between 76- 300+ participants.  Hosts sent 1-2 preshow mailers to the registered attendee list. 

In 2017, surveyed satellite symposia organizers reported between 175-438 in attendance.  Some sent only one preshow mailer and others sent two.  

In 2016, surveyed satellite symposia organizers reported between 70-480 in attendance.  Some sent only one preshow mailer and others sent up to four.
