Some organisations seem to have conferences less frequently than once a year. The next Sawtooth Conjoint Analysis in Healthcare (CAHC) expected in 2014 (the last conference was held in Orlando on March 21-22 2012). It is sometime since ESOMAR ran a healthcare conference; the last one being in 2010.

The prize for the most organized organization must go to ISPOR, which organises and publishes their conferences 4 years in advance! Looking ahead to 2014, we are excited that their North American conference is going to take place in Montreal.
