Vascular Live Interactive Theater Experience
Vascular Live is a popular part of the attendee exhibit hall experience. This interactive experience at the Vascular Annual Meeting puts exhibitors face-to-face with vascular surgeons in the exhibit hall in a standing room only environment.
On the Vascular Live stage, exhibitors will present new ideas, showcase breakthrough technologies and discuss the latest trends in vascular surgery. The presentations are scheduled during unopposed coffee, lunch breaks and receptions to maximize attendance. Additionally, the Vascular Live stage is located immediately adjacent to the coffee break and lunch stations in the exhibit hall, with ample seating for attendees.
Time slots sell quickly. Additional information and the application may be found here.
