Become a Sponsor

Sponsor a session

The programme will include an opening and closing ceremony, two plenary sessions, abstract sessions, symposia and workshops. The sessions will cover a wide range of topics and themes, across lung health, tobacco control and noncommunicable diseases.

The programme will be confirmed in December 2017. Organisations can choose to sponsor an abstract session or symposium based on the track or theme. Sponsors will not be able to select a session for sponsorship once the speakers and presentations are announced.

Conference programme session sponsorship is a powerful way to engage with your audience in order to actively communicate your message, as well as build relationships with delegates.

Sponsoring a session does not give the sponsor the opportunity to influence the selection of, or presentations by, session participants (chairpersons, speakers, facilitators or others).

The session sponsor will:

  • be listed as a session sponsor in the programme, on all marketing material, and in the presentation before the session.
  • be able to distribute materials (supplied by the sponsor) in the session room
  • have their logo displayed on the:
    • session holding screen before the sessions
    • conference website, with link to sponsor website
    • partners section in the conference app
    • programme section of the conference app

Plenary session sponsorship

There are two opportunities to sponsor the key daily morning plenary sessions. Plenaries will be high profile events with attendance from dignitaries, keynote speakers and the media. Your sponsorship covers travel and accommodation for the plenary speakers, as well as the plenary session room costs.
