Virtual ANZCA ASM live from Melbourne: 27 April - 4 May 2021 –

Sponsor and exhibit

We value the long-standing relationships we have in the healthcare industry and there has never been a more important time to re-connect our specialty group.  We are excited to invite you to be a part of the 2021 ANZCA ASM in Melbourne.

For the first time at an ASM the healthcare industry will be represented virtually. You will be able to share content and build connections globally from your own personalised virtual booth and you will notice that the sponsorship categories in 2021 reflect this change with the introduction of a virtual exhibition.

In addition to the listed options, we welcome the opportunity to discuss your individual sponsorship requests in order to best accommodate your company’s marketing and sponsorship requirements.

Frequently Asked Questions

We acknowledge that the 2021 ASM will be a different experience and have included a list of frequently asked questions for you below.

When will the virtual exhibition be open?

The HCI virtual exhibition will be open from Friday 30 April until Tuesday 4 May.

ANZCA has listened to your feedback and has made the purposeful decision to limit delegate access to the virtual exhibition any earlier as we expect that there will be minimal engagement whilst the virtual workshops and social program take place from Tuesday 27 April to Thursday 29 April.

CLICK HERE to view a timetable of when we anticipate the majority of delegates will be online during the ASM. (This is listed under the header HCI open times)

The time zone for the ASM will be in Australian Eastern Standard time (AEST).

How will delegates be encouraged to visit the virtual exhibition?

To encourage delegate engagement to the HCI virtual exhibition there will be dedicated times advertised within the virtual scientific program timeline. In addition to this daily communication from ANZCA hosts, push notifications sent via the virtual platform and a virtual leader board where delegates can earn points for visiting and meeting with you will further encourage interaction.

We also support sponsors to use their marketing and social media channels to facilitate further engagement.

What is the leader board and are there prizes linked to the leaderboard?

We encourage you to click on the leader board trophy on the top right-hand side of the portal to find out how delegates can complete the many goals and win a prize. Any points earned via the leader board will be valid for the entire ASM. A prize will be awarded for the top point earners and prizes will be announced during the ASM.

How does a sponsor access the virtual booth during the ASM?

All sponsors of the ASM and their registered staff should have now been sent their virtual login and personalised URL link.
On Monday 26 April, these login details will be re-sent to all registered sponsors ahead of the ASM going live. This should support any last minute registrations not yet accounted for.

Please email expo@wallf.ly if you require any support with your login details.

Can a sponsor upload additional digital assets to their virtual booth whilst the ASM is live?

Yes. We encourage sponsors to review the digital content and messaging within their virtual booth during the ASM. Another useful feature of your virtual booth is the FAQ section. This is where a sponsor can add common questions that delegates can access if they have limited time to meet with you. It’s encouraged that you to continue to update these FAQ questions throughout the ASM.

Will my conversation end with a delegate if a session within in the scientific session starts?

No. Your conversation will not end. We do recommend facilitating shorter conversations when speaking to delegates during the busier breaks to alleviate any delegate waiting in queue for too long. We also encourage you to capture any important details from delegates when having video meetings and utilising the ‘lead capture tool’ to assist consistency of these details across your overall team.

Are the break times the only opportunity for a sponsor to speak with delegates?

No. The HCI virtual exhibition will be open in line with the content being presented in the scientific program. These start and finish times have been highlighted in the HCI virtual exhibition guidelines that you can access by CLICKING HERE.

You can still meet with delegates within your virtual booth outside of the advertised break times and have face to face video calls and chats. To support you with your staffing and ensuring you have adequate staff available within your virtual booth, ANZCA is encouraging the majority of delegates to visit you during the advertised break times.

Can a sponsor pre-schedule a meeting with a delegate?

Yes. Through the meeting hub we do encourage sponsors to pre-schedule meetings with delegates. The advantage of pre-scheduled meetings is that these meetings will appear within your personal timeline of activity and ensure no meeting is forgotten.

Please be aware, to schedule meetings through the meeting hub a delegate must accept your connection request before these meetings can be arranged.

Can all sponsors and their staff access the meeting hub?

No. Depending on the tier of sponsorship, you have committed to will determine the amount of access you have to the meeting hub. There are two sponsorship ticket types linked to your staff. Only a full registration ticket will allow sponsors access to the meeting hub. Please see below a summary of the definition and breakdown of virtual tickets available for each sponsorship tier.

A full registration ticket = Access to the entire virtual ASM scientific program including the virtual exhibition and connecting through the meeting hub. This ticket also includes access to view the ASM scientific content for up to 12 months post the meeting.

A virtual exhibition ticket = Access to the virtual exhibition only as well as a newly added benefit to access the entire virtual ASM scientific program.

 

Can I share my virtual online ticket type with another staff member during the ASM?

No. each sponsor needs to be registered separately. If you require further virtual exhibition tickets these can be purchased at an additional cost of $A50 per day through your exhibition portal link. Please be aware that you cannot purchase additional full registration tickets.

Can I record a conversation with a delegate for later viewing?

Yes this feature is available via your virtual booth. As you would in your own virtual online meetings, we ask that you ask for the delegate’s permission prior to recording any conversations.
