Thousands of people are in Boston for a medical conference, one of the biggest conventions in the city in nearly two years.
Nearly 4,000 people are attending this year's American College of Emergency Physicians assembly, which is being held Monday through Thursday at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center. About 1,000 more people are partaking in the assembly virtually.
"For the communities that we serve, hotels and restaurants and cabs and airplanes, they're full," said David Gibbons, executive director of the Massachusetts Convention Center Authority. "The bars are full. The restaurants are full. The beds are full."
