Support, Promotion and Advertising Opportunities

Increase your visibility at the ACMG Meeting

The American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics (ACMG) accepts educational 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. 

The ACMG Annual Clinical Genetics Meeting offers a wide-ranging selection of dynamic support opportunities to expand your competitive edge and increase your company’s visibility.  Sponsorship and promotional opportunities increase each participating company’s presence and support helps ACMG provide attendees with valuable meeting resources and essentials. 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 so doing, maximize the percentage of qualified buyers and customers that are attracted to the booth. 

Reserve your opportunity by committing to a sponsorship opportunity early! Apply for sponsorships at the same time as booth application, and receive Priority Points. Don’t see what you are looking for? Contact jdahlroth@acmg.net or 240-204-9643 to discuss.
