Technical Trade Presentations 

Technical Trade Presentations are 20-minute, informal talks given by representatives of exhibiting companies.

All topics are reviewed and approved by the Exhibitor Advisory Council. The presentations will take place on Sunday before the Opening General Sessions from 1 to 4:20 p.m. For examples of accepted Technical Trade Presentations, click here. Topic must be submitted online by March 15, 2021 via Abstract Central.

Sponsorship Levels

Contribute to the meeting at one of the sponsorship levels described below for maximum exposure at the National Meeting, in AALAS publications, and on our web site. These packages are ideal for companies or organizations that want to show their support at a predetermined sponsorship level.

Sponsorship Items and Events

Increase your visibility at the National Meeting by sponsoring an item or event. In addition to Sponsorship Packages, AALAS gives you the flexibility to select the sponsorship items that best support your marketing goals. Total sponsorship spending for these items will classify your company as follows:

  • President: $10,000+
  • Gold: $5,000 to $9,999
  • Silver: $2,500 to $4,999
  • Bronze: $1,500 to $2,499

For example, investing $2,500 for the pen sponsorship will classify your company as a Silver sponsor.

Leverage your marketing budget and earn sponsorship levels; sponsors receive high visibility signage. Deadlines of April 1 for inclusion in the Preliminary Program and August 1 for the Final Program. Some opportunities have more than one sponsor. Prior sponsors have first right of refusal for the current year’s sponsorships, except for the Hotel Key Card. Unlike the other sponsorships that have first right of refusal each year, the Hotel Key Card will be given each year to the first company who submits a complete application by the priority point deadline and who has not purchased this sponsorship in the past. If a company has sponsored this in the past, it can be purchased again if there are no other first-time sponsors interested in it. After April 1, the sponsorships are sold on a first come first serve basis.
