Industry Programs

HomeExhibitors ▶ Industry Programs

The ATS welcomes and encourages industry supported, non-accredited programs during ATS 2021. Industry Programs are the optimal opportunity for companies to promote brand launches or current therapies, conduct a focused program on disease awareness, or discuss current pipeline activity.

All presentations should be scientific in nature and cannot offer CME/CE/MOC or any other form of professional credit, or be used to create CME/CE/MOC content post-conference.

24 Industry Program slots are available from May 16-19. Program options include: 30 or 60 minutes programs, pre-recorded, live, or pre-recorded with live Q&A. There are six programs each day, with three programs from 12-1 p.m. ET and three programs from 5:30-6:30 p.m. ET.

Companies/agencies may purchase three programs initially and be waitlisted for one additional program based on availability. A company/agency can purchase a maximum of four programs. Industry programs are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
