Independent Satellite Symposia (ISS) are one of the most popular contributor options at Leukemia & Lymphoma 2018 for a number of reasons. A satellite symposium provides:

  • A high level of visibility and the opportunity to highlight your organization’s position as a leader in the hematology/oncology field.
  • A highly respected forum for representing important innovations and cutting-edge research.
  • A ‘ready-made’ audience of the leading physicians and researchers actively practicing in the research and treatment of patients diagnosed with hematologic malignancies such as leukemia, lymphoma, multiple myeloma, MDS, MPNs and transplant.
  • Increased recognition and goodwill among thought leaders in the hematology/oncology field.
  • An exclusive time slot, an overview of the symposium in the Meeting Program, the option to insert an invitation in to the official conference bag, and prominent contributor signage outside of the symposium area.
