SPONSORSHIP & EXHIBIT OPPORTUNITIES

The Forum conference is a distinctive event, where leaders gather to consider the most important issues impacting the field. Participants engage in thought-provoking dialogue, promoting a vibrant and collegial exchange of ideas. It is the ideal venue for effective networking.

The Forum offers a limited number of sponsorship and advertising opportunities as a service to our attendees. YOUR ORGANIZATION/ INSTITUTION MUST BE A MEMBER OF THE FORUM IF YOU WISH TO BE A SPONSOR. We thank our past sponsors and look forward to welcoming new ones.
