An Industry Symposium Session is any hour-long, non-CME session providing information on current therapies and products. Companies who wish to conduct an Industry Symposium Session must comply with the Industry Symposium Session Policies.

Guidelines for the Presentation of Scientific Data and Cases

Participants in the ISHLT annual meeting agree and confirm that studies involving human subjects adhere to the principles of the Declaration of Helsinki of the World Medical Association, adhere to the principles of the ISHLT Statement on Transplant Ethics, and meet the informed consent requirements of the institution and country in which the study was performed.

 One-hour, In-Person, Non-CME Session

* Maximum number of attendees will vary depending upon meeting room availability. All rooms will accommodate more than 100 attendees.

  • Session time cannot conflict with ISHLT programming.
  • Session times will be assigned by ISHLT.
  • Industry Symposia will be held concurrently during each session hour.
  • ISHLT cannot guarantee that your symposium time will not be held concurrently with industry competitors.
  • Any materials distributed during industry symposium sessions by the supporting organization must be removed from the room at the conclusion of the session. This includes brochures, give away items or anything containing information about the supporting organization, the session, and all logo items. The supporting organization agrees to return the room in the condition that it was provided prior to the start of their session. Failure to do so will result in cleaning fees and/or the inability to host an industry symposium at future ISHLT meetings.
