Annual Meeting Affiliate Events

Logo

Eligible meetings and events organized by exhibitors, universities, non-profit organizations, and government entities may be held in conjunction with ACR Convergence, the ACR's annual meeting. Any meeting or event that involves ACR scientific meeting attendees hosted by a company or organization, regardless of exhibiting status, is considered an affiliate event and must be approved by the ACR.

All third-party agencies acting on behalf of an exhibiting company are expected to adhere to ACR exhibitor rules and regulations, including all affiliate event guidelines. The exhibiting company will be held responsible for the activities of any third-party agency appointed on its behalf.
