LUNCHTIME SYMPOSIUM                                                              $6,400           

The opportunity to sponsor a 45-minute commercial symposium held during one of the lunch breaks.  This gives the sponsoring company a unique opportunity to communicate directly with the delegates. 

The Scientific Committee wishes to be consulted about the content of the symposium in advance. The invitation to speakers and their associated expenses is the responsibility of the sponsoring company. 

Sponsors of the symposium will have their company logo and web-site link on the homepage. Also included in this price is an advert which will appear in the Final Program and Book of Abstracts

Colleagues assisting on the stand must register separately and pay $100 per day to include tea/coffee and lunches.

Access to power can be provided at an additional cost, as can other services such as on-stand catering.  More details on these services are available from the Conference Organizer, Darla Miller.

Contributions will be welcomed from companies who would like to sponsor the conference but not be associated with any one particular aspect.


Every company that sponsors the 27th International Mammalian Genome Conference will have its logo printed in the Final Program and Book of Abstracts and appear in the list of sponsors.  To guarantee that your company appears in this publication the Conference Organizer must receive your logo and company information by August 15, 2013.

As the sponsorship opportunities are normally booked far in advance of the conference, we recommend that you contact the Organizer (Darla Miller) as soon as possible.
