With more than 3,700 nurses from across the United States, Congress gives you the visibility you need to put your organization front and center. Whether your goal is to increase brand recognition, drive traffic to your booth, or send your company’s message home with each attendee, you will find what you need to meet your goals at Congress. We have a variety of new opportunities available, but if you don’t see what you’re looking for, contact us about creating a custom package to help you make the greatest impact in Anaheim.

Hold an event at Congress and connect with oncology nurses who are at the front lines of cancer care:

  • CNE symposia: Host a breakfast, lunch, or dinner event to educate nurses on the topic of your choice and offer them an opportunity to earn additional contact hours of continuing nursing education outside of the regular Congress schedule.
  • Non-CNE symposia: These informational presentations give you a chance to share valuable knowledge withattendees, while providing them with the opportunity to network with other nurses over breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
  • Theater presentations: Take advantage of this opportunity to offer non-CNE presentations to attendees during learning hall time.
  • Ancillary events: Conveniently hold and schedule advisory board meetings, focus groups, corporate and staff meetings, social events, and more in conference space

Learning Hall Schedule

Over half of the exhibit hall hours are unopposed to give exhibitors plenty of opportunities to interact with attendees. Prize drawings, hands-on attendee
