At the Cervical Spine Research Society 43rd Annual Meeting biomechanical engineers, neurologists, neurosurgeons, radiologists, and orthopedic surgeons from the United States and Canada, as well as 18 other countries, will learn about clinical and research developments related to the portion of the spine found in the neck.
“Adhering to deadlines and troubleshooting last-minute changes are always issues that are problematic for organizations with limited staff,” said Peggy Wlezien, CSRS’s executive director. CSRS also must contend with the packed schedules of its attendees and speakers. “Working with busy physician surgeons who are volunteers,” Wlezien said, “is challenging on many levels.”
This year’s meeting will include a “beyond the booth” program that gives exhibitors more face-to-face time with attendees, with meeting rooms where they can offer non-CME workshops and present new-product information. “For a long time, we have recognized that the exhibit hall is costly for companies and can often fall short of the ideal experience that industry is looking for,” Wlezien said. “These additional optional evening opportunities provide an optimal environment for the companies to create a more meaningful or direct connection.” CSRS also will expand its e-poster program with a series of short, poster-based “highlights” presentations.
