All educational grants are managed in compliance with relevant CME accreditation criteria and industry compliance codes. In order to ensure independence of all CME accredited elements, companies providing grants may not influence the topic, speaker selection, or any other aspect of the content or presentation. No promotional, commercial, or advertising materials may be included in the following opportunities. All support will be disclosed to participants.
All grants are managed in compliance with relevant accreditation and industry compliance criteria.

The Congress App engages attendees with personalized planning tools and real-time event updates. The App transforms smartphones, tablets, and laptops into tools for active meeting participation and makes it easy for participants to access meeting information to connect with speakers and colleagues. The App includes the scientific program, abstracts, speaker information, participant lists, the rating/voting system for sessions and speakers, and a personalized scheduler. The App can be downloaded from the Apple App Store and Google Play.
Congress App sponsorship support includes:
- Supporter acknowledgement on the splash/pop-up screen of the App: “Supported by: company name/logo” (product logo not permitted).

E-Posters are a unique combination of scientific posters and interactive content. An e-Poster is an electronic version of the traditional paper poster that is shown at dedicated digital stations at the event and on a dedicated page in the virtual platform.
E-Posters create unique networking and engagement opportunities, generate participants’ interest, and are good exposure for authors. The highly trafficked e-Poster terminals located in prime locations allow attendees to access the electronic presentations easily and conveniently. E-poster support includes:
- Signage at the entrance to the e-Poster area with “Supported by…” and a company logo only.
- Signage, “Supported by…” and a company logo only on each individual e-poster station.
The ability to attend all conferences, or even all session at a given conference, is impossible for the busy medical professional. Webcasting provides a means of sharing knowledge and learning opportunities beyond the dates of the actual event and thus serves a vital educational need. Materials are saved locally, but at the same time, can be distributed over the web to viewers around the world via a robust cloud server. Viewers can access the broadcasts using PCs, tablets, or smartphones live (as streamed video) or later, as on-demand webcasts.
Kenes offers two types of webcasting options:*
- Video includes a video screen of the speaker during the session, PowerPoint slides (in sync with the speaker), and audio.
- Digital Imaging includes PowerPoint slides with audio.
- Support will be recognized on the home screen with ˝Supported by… ˝ and a company logo only
*Webcasted sessions to be designated by the Conference Planning Group. Supporters will have no influence on content.
