Spring Meeting 2011 -- Industry Sponsorship

As you know, the Canadian Cancer Trials Group and the pharmaceutical industry have enjoyed a steadily increasing level of collaboration over the past years. Joint trials are common and, linked to these trials, there have been numerous company‐sponsored meetings and events. In addition, many companies have generously contributed to the overall support of our annual meeting. This year, we are pleased to offer our industry partners an opportunity to provide educational materials that are related to clinical investigation and patient care. To forward this opportunity, we have made arrangements for display / exhibition booths.

The availability of booths is linked with corporate sponsorship of the Annual Meeting. In 2011, the Canadian Cancer Trials Group is seeking four levels of corporate sponsorship: Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze. Platinum, Gold and Silver sponsorship levels are associated with the availability of exhibition booths.

All materials distributed by industry sponsors must be for educational purposes only. We have asked that our industry sponsors do NOT engage in sales or promotional activities, or distribute commercial promotional materials (e.g. "giveaways") at any time throughout the duration of the Spring Meeting of Participants. Display or distribution of promotional materials, including standards related to product-specific advertisements and other product promotion, must conform to all applicable continuing medical education ("CME") standards.

Exhibits may be open from 7:00 am to 6:00 pm on Friday, 29 April - Saturday, 30 April, and from 7:00 am - 3:00 pm on Sunday, 1 May 2011. They will be located at Mounbatten Court (located between Mountbatten and Churchill Ballrooms).

We are extremely grateful to our industry sponsors for their very generous support of the Canadian Cancer Trials Group's 2011 Spring Meeting of Participants.
