Branding Opportunities & Educational Grant Acknowledgments

Branding and educational grant opportunities for the STS 53rd Annual Meeting will be available late summer 2016. For more information, please contact Samantha McCarthy, Industry Relations Manager, at (312) 202-5869 or smccarthy [at] sts [dot] org

Branding Opportunities 
Branding opportunities include items such as banners, window clings, and shuttle bus signage. (Branding opportunities, offered only to exhibitors, are separate and distinct from STS educational grant support levels and do not qualify for STS educational grant acknowledgement.)

Educational Grant Benefactor Opportunities 
Your company can support the entire Annual Meeting rather than individual components of the meeting. The level of support your company achieves corresponds with a wide variety of acknowledgements. This program reflects the special care the Society has taken to address issues identified in the AdvaMed Code of Ethics on Interactions with Health Care Professionals, the PhRMA Code on Interactions with Healthcare Professionals, and the ACCME Standards for Commercial Support.
