The organising committee recognises that continued industry support is essential to the ongoing success of smacc and that the relationship with industry must be productive. If your company is looking to make a valuable contribution to critical care education and develop meaningful contacts with key clinicians, then look no further. This year we gave all our industry partners a one-minute open microphone spot in the main plenary sessions to promote a key feature of their trade display (a sort of ‘elevator grab’ to introduce themselves). We are expanding these concepts for 2014 and much more. If your company has any new concepts that could be part of smaccGOLD 2014, then please don’t hesitate to contact us.
Why Become a Sponsor?
Emergency Physicians, Intensivists, Anaesthetists, Pre-Hospital Emergency Personnel and Rural GP’s overlap enormously in the care of the critically ill. This conference will provide a unique opportunity to
network with all specialties in a cutting edge environment.
If your organisation wants to stand out as being an innovator at the forefront of critical care, you can’t afford to miss out on this opportunity. Not only is the educational initiatives ground breaking, so are the sponsorship opportunities.
smaccGOLD 2014 will attract a broad mix of local, national and international specialists. The keynote speakers are the big names of critical care in Australia, the UK and USA, with huge web-based profiles. The structure of the conference has been designed to appeal to both traditional learners and those utilising all the modern opportunities which online education provides.
This conference will stand out on the critical care education calendar in 2014 as the most exciting and novel initiative. The 2013 conference was the biggest critical care conference in Australasia and smaccGold will be even bigger.
All the sessions, workshops, free papers and posters will be podcast and released free via the affiliated website organisations. This means that while there will be exciting opportunities for exposure of your organisation both before and during the conference, there will also be amazing opportunities long after as specialists go online to download material. The smacc website had 120,000 site visits in the six months prior to the conference and now continues to grow as content from the conference is continuously released free online.
By sponsoring and attending the conference, industry delegates will gain valuable insights into what is happening in the critical care world and more importantly how to better connect with up and coming specialists in this field.
The organising Committee are grateful to the following sponsors who have given their support in many different ways:
