Sponsorship and Exhibition Opportunities

To complement the ASM scientific and social program, there is a number of strong Sponsorship and Exhibition opportunities offered allowing organisations to increase and consolidate their brand within the intensive care field.

The theme of this ASM is all-things gastrointestinal. This is an enormously broad critical care topic, involving such aspects as feeding and fluids, antimicrobials, surgical methods, haemodynamic monitoring, imaging, analgesics, ventilation techniques, pathology testing, and renal replacement therapy.

International Speakers

  • Professor Julia Wendon – United Kingdom
  • Professor Lars Lundell – Sweden
  • Dr John Marshall – Canada

Please visit the program page for further information.

Delegates

Hosting the ASM in Sydney always guarantees strong registration, and we anticipate this will be even stronger in 2017 with the opening of ICC Sydney.

The ASM target audience is primarily the CICM Fellows and Trainees; however we do encourage other specialities to attend.

For the first time we are holding a Trainee Symposium the day prior to the ASM, this will boost trainee attendance to our meeting.

Our estimated attendance would be approximately 400 delegates, however there are factors that will assist with boosting delegate numbers and we anticipate higher than expected attendance.

  • High percentage of our Fellows and Trainees are based in NSW. 
  • Convenient and easy location for interstate travelling. 
  • Return to a single organ theme event. 
  • This is the first time a CICM ASM has approached the theme ICU Gastroenterology. 
  • Invitation to speakers from other specialties such as Surgery and Anaesthetics. 
  • The introduction of Trainee Symposium in 2017 will increase trainee attendance at our meeting.

Catering breaks will be held in the exhibition area to maximise the opportunities for delegates and providers to meet face to face. In addition, the Friday Night Welcome Function will be held within the Exhibition area and we encourage all to participate and attend. 

The prospectuses can be viewed below detailing the range of options available for consideration.
