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.

NEW!  Corporate Educational Satellite Sessions 

Beginning in 2023, the Corporate Educational Satellite Sessions will be part of the Tuesday afternoon/evening program of workshops and SIG meetings. These Satellite Sessions are not part of the official ACMG meeting programming, are not awarded educational credit by ACMG, and are planned solely by corporations/industry, ACCME providers, medical education companies and/or non-profit organizations.  These sessions should demonstrate new and innovative developments, generate interest in cutting edge products or services or share innovative insights to the meeting participants.  These activities must be presented with objectivity, balance and scientific rigor and not as promotional or marketing opportunities.   

There are two types of Corporate Educational Satellite Symposia: 

                Certified Educational Sessions are CME or CE certified for health care professionals in attendance, developed in compliance with the Accreditation Council                 for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) & American Medical Association requirements with regard to certified CME or other relevant guidelines for CE                 credit, developed independently by an Accredited CME Provider. 

                Non-Certified Educational Sessions do not carry CME credit, NSGC credit or P.A.C.E.® credit, are non-commercial sessions, developed in adherence of the                 ACMG Educational Satellite Symposia guidelines.

ACMG will assign meeting space to approved applications. Session organizers are responsible for all logistical arrangements and costs (room set, faculty payments, food & beverage, AV, etc. ).
