Introduction: Sponsorship & Exhibition
Dear Sponsors and Exhibitors:
Following the tremendous success of our November 2016 Conference, we are very pleased to announce the Annual 2017 Conference of the FRM, Translational Reproductive Biology and Clinical Reproductive Endocrinology, will once again take place at The Grand Hyatt Hotel in New York City on November 16-19. Considering the remarkable reviews the Conference received last year from over 250 registrants from 48 countries, we expect even more registrants from more places around the world to attend.
Though the main purpose of the Conference is to encourage quick translational transitions from basic science discoveries into clinical reproductive medicine, and the conference themes, “Paradigm changes you may not hear about elsewhere” and “Think differently,” have remained the same, the 2017 program will be even more expansive and state-of-the-art. This includes 6 pre-Conference workshops (in place of 4 in 2016) as well as a new program section, specifically dedicated to the most interesting presentations of the 2017 ESHRE and ASRM Conferences. We are also pleased to report that the already confirmed faculty will be even more prominent than last year. This includes Prof. Katsuhiko Hayashi from Japan, whose laboratory just recently published the remarkable November 2016 paper in NATURE, in which they produced in mice normally fertilizable oocytes from stem cells, fertilized
those and produced pubs over multiple generations. The potential translational importance of this study for human infertility is, obviously, groundbreaking.
Based on very positive feedback from our 2016 sponsors and exhibitors, we also hope for a significant expansion in the number of commercial sponsors and exhibitors for our 2017 Conference. Therefore, we are already contacting you with a request to consider sponsorship of our November 2017 conference and/or exhibitor. If you did not attend our 2016 Conference, please take a quick glimpse at what you missed:
We are offering the following support options:
We welcome sponsorships at DIAMOND, PLATINUM, GOLD and SILVER levels.
II. RENTAL OF EXHIBITION SPACE
While exhibition space may be requested as part of the four premium packages, a limited amount of exhibition space may be purchased as a stand-alone option. This space is directly outside of the main lecture hall, where the poster boards will be located and coffee breaks will be served.
III. EVENT SPONSORSHIPS
These sponsorships include naming rights for events or areas, special awards, etc.
IV. DONATION TO the FRM
We welcome all donations to the FRM (Foundation for Reproductive Medicine), which are tax-deductible according to the law.
We hope that your company will consider helping us in continuing an annual tradition in New York City by participating in this Conference. As a not-for-profit research foundation, the FRM offers various options of participation, while remaining in full compliance with the FDA’s position on commercial support of scientific and educational programs as non-promotional. In addition, all contributions to the FRM are fully tax deductible in accordance with the law.
If you are interested in further exploring your participation as a sponsor and/or exhibitor, please contact us as soon as possible by e-mailing our sponsorship/exhibition coordinator or by calling the administrative offices of the FRM at 646-882-0840.
