Request Meeting Space

SOT offers attendees the opportunity to host meetings and events while at the SOT Annual Meeting. There are five different types of meeting and event space available to meet your needs. Only SOT Global Partners, Exhibitors, Supporters, or organizations otherwise associated with SOT may host ancillary functions or have meeting space during the SOT Annual Meeting. These events must be approved by SOT Headquarters, as hotels are not permitted to book meeting space without authorization from SOT.

Satellite Meetings
(Convention Center or Hotels)

Rental: Complimentary

SOT endorses several satellite meetings, organized around scientific topics related to toxicology. Satellite meetings are typically held the Saturday before or the Thursday afternoon following the Annual Meeting.

Please do not complete an Ancillary Meeting request form for a Satellite Meeting. Your proposal should be submitted as an MS Word or PDF file and follow the proposal format of a regular Symposium or Workshop Session . Proposals for a Satellite Meeting should be sent to David Rossé for the attention of Ron Hines, SOT vice president and Scientific Program Committee chair.

Ancillary Meeting Space

Rental: Complimentary

Ancillary meeting space is available for a variety of functions, from small group meetings to receptions. No ancillary events may be scheduled during specific SOT events (outlined below).


  • Submit one application per function request (only one day/time per application). You will receive email confirmation per space request.
  • In early October, you will receive email confirmation with your room assignment and hotel contact information. All coordination, including food and beverage and audio-visual equipment requests, should be arranged directly with the hotel contact. The applicant is responsible for any fees or charges assessed by the hotel.
  • Space will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis after all SOT functions have been placed. Diamond Supporters will receive priority in the space assignment process.
  • SOT has the right to change space assignments at any time due to unforeseen schedule alterations.
  • SOT reserves the right to deny any Ancillary Meeting request from any organization whose goals or past actions are deemed counterproductive to those of the Society.
