Industry Supported Sessions

Industry supported sessions held during or at the conclusion of certain ACR meetings provide companies with the opportunity to communicate their message through important education to a diverse group of rheumatologists and rheumatology health professionals. Industry supported sessions are complimentary to attendees, enhancing their educational experience at the meetings.

ACR Convergence

Industry-Supported Symposia
Industry-Supported Symposia at ACR Convergence, the ACR's annual meeting, offer the opportunity to reach thousands of rheumatologists and rheumatology health professionals during the premier rheumatology meeting in the world. Other educational events at ACR Convergence are restricted during symposia times. Symposia during the meeting are reserved for Foundation Corporate Roundtable donors and may either be non-CME, company directed, or CME-accredited programs, while all companies are invited to host post-meeting symposia which must offer CME credit.

Innovation Theater
The ACR Innovation Theater is a hard-walled theater within the exhibit hall with seating for 300 attendees. This provides companies with the opportunity to market their products or services to attendees in a theater like setting.

Educational Meetings

Important Announcement

The ACR has been closely monitoring the situation regarding the spread of SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus causing coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), and its potential impact on our educational activities. 

Based on current statistics, the escalation in the number of people affected, and the likelihood of potentially increasing the exposure to COVID-19, we have reached the difficult decision to cancel the in-person portion of the State-of-the-Art Clinical Symposium, Pediatric Rheumatology Symposium, and the Rheumatology Research Workshop. The 2020 State-of-the-Art Clinical Symposium was held virtually via ACR Beyond LIVE, and the 2020 Pediatric Rheumatology Symposium has been postponed.

Please review important information specific to the Pediatric Rheumatology Symposium.

Industry-Supported Symposia at ACR educational meetings provide an exceptional audience reach and may either be non-CME, company directed, or CME-accredited programs. Other educational events are restricted during symposia times. Opportunities to host industry-supported symposia are offered at the following meetings.
