Annual Meeting

ABOUT

The LA-ACS Virtual Annual Meeting will take place Friday-Sunday, March 5-7, 2021.

We will be utilizing Whova for our virtual meeting platform.  Using the Whova website or mobile app, attendees will be able to access the schedule, join the live webinars, view the on-demand presentations after the live events, participate in polls and discussion boards as well as network with attendees and exhibitors in the community board.  You can schedule virtual meetups with other attendees or request a 1:1 virtual appointment with vendors.

Each day we will have scheduled breaks during the session for you to step away from the computer, schedule virtual meetups with attendees or participate in a vendor virtual coffee break.  For those that are unable to participate in the live webinars, we will have them available on demand the following day.  We have another great lineup of speakers this year and are looking forward to a successful virtual meeting.

ANNUAL MEETING

The LA-ACS Annual Meeting will be a virtual meeting taking place March 5-7, 2021. This virtual meeting is a wonderful opportunity to showcase your company before surgeons, residents, and medical students from across Louisiana. The meeting will be spread out over three days of live webinars and on-demand presentations using the Whova platform.

MEETING FORMAT

The 2021 LA-ACS Virtual Annual Meeting will be spread out over three days of live webinars and on-demand presentations using the Whova platform. The virtual meeting platform will house our speaker profiles, meeting agenda, virtual exhibit hall and a community board for networking with attendees. Attendees will utilize the Whova web and mobile app platform to check the schedule, attend virtual sessions, view on-demand presentations and network with other attendees and exhibitors.

VIRTUAL EXHIBIT HALL

Attendees will have access to the Virtual Exhibit hall from the moment they register until three months after the event. While the virtual meeting itself is “live” March 5-7, 2021, the meeting content will be available to attendees through June 2021. Virtual Exhibitor “booths” will contain links to your company, your logo, contact information and a description of your company’s products & services. Depending on your exhibitor level, there will be a chance to offer promotions, get attendee contact information, schedule 1:1 appointment with attendees, present live product demonstrations and/or host a virtual coffee break. We will offer an exhibitor passport program to incentivize attendees to visit your virtual booth. Exhibitors will receive a report with the number of leads received and booth views.
