Exhibit Info

Dear Exhibitors:

We would like to extend a personal invitation to your company to exhibit at San Diego Shoulder Institute’s (SDSI) 35th Annual Course: Arthroscopy, Arthroplasty, and Fractures. SDSI is extremely proud that our course is historically recognized as the best shoulder course in the world! No other course offers the depth and breadth of the total spectrum of shoulder care as does SDSI. This year promises to be our best course to date. We are pleased to announce a robust national and international faculty recognized as celebrated experts in the development, mentorship, and perfection of the art of shoulder care. This year we implemented exciting and robust changes to help drive additional activity in the exhibit hall. Instead of hosting the Total Shoulder and Fracture Fixation Workshop on Wednesday Evening, we are opening up product demonstration opportunities for all booths during the Wednesday Evening Chairmen’s reception. All vendors will have the opportunity to host key faculty at their booths and perform technical demonstrations during our well-attended event.

In an effort to be cost conservative, SDSI has not raised exhibit fees in years in spite of our escalating costs. Although we operate as a 501 (c) 3 not for profit organization, we are forced to raise exhibit registration charges nominally this year to help defray our expenses. We hope you understand and encourage you to submit your booth requests early to enable us to accommodate you.

As in years past, we will provide additional advertising and marketing opportunities. Please refer to the attached sponsorship document for details.

We sincerely hope to see you in June. You won’t want to miss this valuable opportunity!
