Sponsored Lunch & Learns
$20,000 fee includes timeslot and marketing and preregistration of your event

Which lunch slots are available? The following slots are available:
September 11, 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. Central Time
September 12, 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. Central Time
How many lunch slots are available per day? The number of lunch slots depends on the number of registrants.

Will there be therapeutic category exclusivity? SCCM cannot guarantee exclusivity because it depends on the number of registrants, which opens up options to comparable topics.

When are materials due?
Regarding Lunch & Learn, attendee preregistration: Materials are due immediately so that SCCM can set up the program in the store. The following materials are needed:

  • Title
  • Topic (description in 50 words or less, to include topic summary and/or learning objectives)
  • Faculty information (credentials, institution)
  • Faculty email address
During the week of August 17, 2020, SCCM started the process of reviewing presentations. SCCM will be sending instructions to faculty to upload MP4 files of their presentations. If you do not have the technical resources to do this, SCCM can connect you with our AV partner for a fee of an average rate of $150/hour.
SCCM must review the slides before recording them, in the same way as was done for Industry Insights sessions for Congress. SCCM will review only for use of SCCM name, logo, or seal. Once approved, SCCM will instruct you on the next steps.
SCCM wishes to avoid any implication that the sponsored Lunch & Learn sessions are planned, implemented, or sponsored by SCCM. For this reason, promotional materials must not in any way mention SCCM or COVID-19: What’s Next. Promotional materials of any kind, as well as program materials, must not use the SCCM logo or SCCM name or mention SCCM’s event. Phrases such as “presented during,” “presented in conjunction with,” “presented preceding,” or “presented prior to” must not be used. This rule applies to materials developed for use before, during, and after COVID-19:What’s Next.

August 31, 2020, is the deadline to upload approved presentation slides and to finalize faculty audio on Cadmium. September 1, 2020, is the soft release of the platform for exhibitors, staff, and sponsors to preview. September 8, 2020, is the official release of the platform to attendees.

Which virtual platform will be used? Cadmium. Faculty are encouraged to provide an MP4 file and be available for the Q&A chat portion.

Is there a maximum number of participants? No.

Are we able to share the link for our symposia? Yes.

Are there any additional fees except for the $20,000? Yes, if you opt for any of the following options:
  1. Promotion in the digital grab bag: $3,000
  2. Advertising in the COVID-19 eNewsletter: $3,750 (see ad agreement application)
  3. Postage/printing costs: if you opt for a postal mailing to garner attendees
  4. Enduring option in which SCCM will provide marketing to broaden learner reach: $10,000

Confirmation that sponsors will receive a copy of the symposia recording: If sponsor wants SCCM to promote post-event, there will likely be an enduring option for $10,000 for SCCM to promote/endure for 12 months with a blend of digital (eNewsletters) and social media marketing.

Will sponsors get access to overall attendee email addresses for promoting their specific event? No. You can enhance visibility of your sponsored event through eNewsletter advertising. (e.g., COVID-19 eNewsletter [Industry Partner Resources Section], other eblast promotions, and industry-sponsored education web page). SCCM will not provide email addresses of registered attendees before the event.

Will sponsors get access to attendee email address for those who attended their event? Yes, SCCM will provide email addresses for attendees who attended the specific Lunch & Learn virtual event. SCCM can provide a registration count before the event.
