Support, Promotion and Advertising Opportunities

Sponsorship and promotional opportunities increase each participating company’s visibility, and help ACMG provide attendees with valuable meeting resources and essentials such as coffee breaks, registration materials, Wi-Fi and much more. The integration of support, advertising and promotion into your exhibiting plan are proven activities that enable exhibitors to reach their entire target audience, and in doing so, maximize the number of qualified buyers and customers who are attracted to the booth.

Reserve your opportunity by committing to a sponsorship opportunity early! Sold items noted below in RED.

American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics (ACMG) adheres to guidelines when working with outside funding to ensure independence and autonomy of both organizations. The program and sponsorship/support agreement must comply with industry guidelines (e.g., the American Medical Association, the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education, Council of Medical Specialty Societies, and the Office of the Inspector General), operate within our principles of medical ethics and acceptable medical practice, and subsidize both direct and indirect program costs.

ACMG accepts financial and in-kind support from corporations, foundations, individuals, and other organizations only if such acceptance would not pose a conflict of interest and in no way impair the ACMG’s objectivity, influence, priorities, and actions. Support of ACMG services, events or programs does not permit influence over content, nor does it imply ACMG approval or endorsement of an organization’s policies or products, whether a service, event or program is funded by single or multiple sources.
