Non-CME Symposia


The ATS encourages Non-CME Symposia in conjunction with the ATS 2017 International Conference. These programs complement the content offered by the ATS and provide an opportunity for attendees to further enrich their learning experiences during the premier educational event for Pulmonary, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine professionals. While the content of these programs is the sole responsibility of the supporting company or companies, the ATS encourages programs that are scientific in nature.

Availability

Non-CME Symposia take place in conference hotels from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. on Sunday and Tuesday evenings during the conference. Floor plans are available by clicking the classroom or crescent room size below.

Non-CME symposia are not scheduled on the Monday night of the ATS International Conference, when the bulk of the ATS Assemblies and alumni groups hold their events.

The ATS Assemblies on Behavioral Science and Health Services Research (BSHSR) and Pediatrics (PEDS), and the Section on Genetics and Genomics hold their membership meetings on Sunday evening. If you are targeting these assemblies, you may want to select Tuesday evening to maximize your potential audience.

The use of any space within the hotel or convention center that is affiliated with the Industry Program should support conference activities, and cannot be used in combination with developing CME/CE Material or any form of Professional Credit.

    • Programs from MECCs are welcomed, but require a letter of approval from the ATS that should be included in any grant submissions. Applications that do not follow this process will be declined. To obtain a letter of approval please contact Michelle Turenne, Chief, Corporate Alliances and Business Development at mturenne@thoracic.org.

  • A comprehensive A/V package is included and furnished by the ATS. A decision to not use the A/V package does not change the fee for holding a Non-CME Symposia. The A/V package for each room is customized to ensure good visibility and sound quality. Please see the A/V Package plans for each room to see what is included.

    • A general room operator for audio visual is provided to help load presentations or adjust the volume level. Should you require more technical assistance such as an audio engineer, video engineer, or camera operator please contact PSAV.
