The SOM wishes to be more proactive with regards the returns available to companies supporting the SOM Annual Scientific Meeting. The SOM intends to profile further committed sponsors and exhibitors on the website by not only including the company logo but introduce from the start an editorial profiling you firm plus a link to any particular product.
We will ask your firm to participate in promoting the Conference in newsletters and company websites both in the UK and amongst your affiliates.
On booking we will ask you to send:
a current high resolution file of the company logo plus
an editorial for posting on the SOM ASM 2013 website (on receipt of payment).
details of where the conference maybe promoted through your company networks and mailing lists.
We are inviting international experts to share their knowledge and we have also set aside time within the programme for oral presentations and posters. We invite all colleagues (from industry too) to submit abstracts – be they case histories, academic studies or policy reviews.
At the 2013 ASM we intend to address key aspects of Occupational Health practice including:
- Safety Critical Assessment
- Manual Tasks
- Failing Ability Symptoms
- Cognitive Feature
- Keynote lectures from invited speakers
- Oral presentations
- Poster presentations
- Networking opportunities
- Workplace Visits
We will update this website as the project progresses. In the meantime, we urge you to note the dates of SOM ASM 2013 in your diary and to begin planning your firm’s involvement.
To reach more professionals the Organising Committee would like to plan ahead and fund a webcasting project. The webcast will record the plenary sessions throughout the three days of the Conference. This will be made available to SOM Members free of charge and to non members on a pay per view basis depending on corporate support.
The SOM invites your company’s participation in supporting the webcast project by purchasing an advertisement and link option associated with the cast at the time of booking your stand.
The plan is to have an advertisement page for all those visitors entering the site to view. The cast will be available for at least 11 months post Conference.
