2023 Surgeons and Engineers Meeting

Exhibitor Information

On behalf of the American College of Surgeons Division of Education and the ACS Engineering Committee, you are cordially invited to exhibit at the 2023 Annual ACS Surgeons and Engineers: A Dialogue on Surgical Simulation, a full-day meeting that will occur at the Swissôtel in Chicago, IL. This meeting will be held on Wednesday, March 1, 2023.

Over 110 participants, including surgeons, engineers, surgical educators, academic and industry engineers, and scientists from the U.S. and 13 other countries, attended virtually the third full-day meeting in March 2022. The 2023 meeting will include quality educational discussion through the keynote, panel presentation, abstract presentation, break-out sessions, and additional activities to encourage networking.

Exhibits will be located in close proximity to the participants so that they will be able to easily visit the exhibitors’ tables at several different time allocations during the meeting.
