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.

Annual Meeting

Industry-Supported Symposia
Industry-Supported Symposia at the 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 the Annual Meeting 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.
