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 including the application form will be added later.
SVS offers confirmed exhibitors the opportunity to sponsor Satellite Symposia. For questions, email Debbie Wallentin or call 847-680-4855. Download the Satellite Symposia Brochure [PDF]
Exhibitor Requests for Meeting Space
In accordance with the guidelines adopted by the SVS, exhibitors are not able to offer events/social functions geared towards professional attendees that directly conflict with the VAM20 educational program. Wednesday evening is available for approved satellite symposia. On Thursday and Friday evenings, SVS offers social events for all attendees. Companies that are in violation of the guidelines will risk loss of priority points and possible disqualification from future Vascular Annual Meetings.
Limited meeting space is available at the convention center and headquarters hotel for internal company meetings. Please note that due to meeting space limitations, meeting requests for full-day meetings or offices cannot be granted. SVS has made office space on the exhibit floor available for this purpose (see below). To request meeting space, please complete the meeting request form and return to Debbie Wallentin.
Only approved 2020 Vascular Annual Meeting exhibitors may request meeting space. There is a US$300 placement fee per form charged by SVS. Companies will be sent a confirmation of their meeting room assignment when meeting space assignments are made.
