Targeted Sponsorship Opportunities

NEW! Vendor Lightning Rounds:1,000 committment; 8 opportunities

We offer a chance for vendors and associations to give 15-minute presentations to conference attendees during the lunch breaks on Monday, June 19 and Tuesday, June 20. This is not intended to be a sales pitch but rather a discussion of research or design efforts that your group has undertaken that contributes to evidence-based practice.  The session will be part of the schedule and is not to be confused with the program presentations [e.g. invited speakers or reviewed presentations].  

These sessions are 15 minutes in length, and will be timed by a moderator. We will schedule 4 presentations back-to-back during a 60 minute concurrent time slot with time for questions and answers at the end.
