Exhibitor-Hosted Sessions (EHS) are commercially supported educational sessions held in conjunction with the SOT Annual Meeting and ToxExpo. Only ToxExpo exhibitors or Annual Meeting Supporters may apply. These sessions are open to all meeting attendees. Approved Exhibitor-Hosted Sessions will be listed beginning November 2018 on the Program Details page.
Applications for these sessions will be evaluated for the ability to provide educational content distinct from that in the official SOT Annual Meeting Scientific Program and are subject to approval by the SOT Scientific Program Committee or its agents/staff. Information presented in Exhibitor-Hosted Sessions must provide a balanced, objective viewpoint, and only one session per company is allowed per day. Incomplete applications (including sections marked with “TBD”) will be rejected.
If you cancel your EHS for any reason prior to or on December 1, 2018, the full EHS fee will be refunded if the session slot can be reassigned. If the slot cannot be reassigned, 50 percent of the fee will be refunded. No refunds will be granted after December 1, 2018.

Auxiliary costs related to the session, such as additional AV equipment, food and beverage, etc., will be responsibility of the hosting company.
