Meeting Preview

Limited opportunity – only cover ads are accepted

Mailed to approximately 30,000 physicians, administrators, clinicians, and technicians globally, the Meeting Preview serves as the ASCRS invitation to attend the 2017 Symposium & Congress.

In 2017, ASCRS will only be accepting ads for the cover positions. No interior ads will be permitted (with the exception of ISI statements). The limited number of ads increases the value and number of impressions the ads will receive. These cover positions will also be exclusively included in the online version of the publication.

Discontinuation of the black and white rate card

In 2016, ASCRSMedia discontinued the black and white rate card. As printing  technology has evolved and advertisers have focused on the advantages of using color, there has been rapidly declining demand for black and white ads.

However, ASCRSMedia also recognizes the requirement for pharmaceutical and medical device companies to publish ISI statements adjacent to their display ads. These federally mandated requirements do not add to the brand promotion of a product and can be prohibitively expensive. For this reason, we have created an ISI rate card for firms placing ads that require an ISI statement alongside their ad. This rate card may only be used for ISI statements. These ads are not restricted to black and white; spot color may be included in these ads.

Please contact your salesperson for additional information or any questions you may have on this program.
