Invitation to Participate

We invite you to participate as an exhibitor or sponsor in the first Virtual COA, CORS and CORA Annual Meeting from June 19-20.  Due to COVID-19, we’ve changed our plans are instead going from coast to computer for the first Virtual Annual Meeting.

The event offers COA members free access to live sessions with expert faculty on enticing and timely educational content, webinars from our industry partners, scheduled times for e-poster viewing, virtual exhibits, and a unique networking and engagement experience via our interactive online platform.   After the live event, we are offering free access to recordings of the live sessions, as well as access to the eposters, virtual exhibits and recordings of industry-led webinars until September.

By participating as an exhibitor or sponsor of the virtual event, you are maintaining that important engagement and interaction with the COA membership.  We may not be able to meet in person, but we can share best practices, learn from each other and keep our community together through events like the Virtual COA, CORS and CORA Annual Meeting.

Contact CEO, Cynthia Vezina: cynthia@canorth.org, to discuss the various sponsorship benefits and inclusions.

Thank you so much for your ongoing support of the COA, our members, our educational programs, and our orthopaedic community.

How To Build Your Virtual Booth

Virtual exhibit booths are interactive and very easy to build and manage.  See step by step instructions below.

Exhibitor FAQ

How do exhibitors ‘staff’ the booth and interact live?

Your exhibit can be accessed 24/7 but should be staffed during breaks on June 19-20 to engage in the live chat and video features and maximize networking.  Refer to the program tab for full details.

How is the virtual event platform used to build the booth and maximize engagement around it? 

Tutorials and other support will be available to help exhibitors build their booths and maximize participation. 

How many participants will be attending?

Because the conference is a first of its kind for the COA, attendance numbers are difficult to predict. Registration will open shortly and we expect participation and interest to grow as the program gains momentum. Throughout the summer, the COA will issue various campaigns to promote the exhibit hall access to members after the conference dates and will notify exhibitors prior to the distribution of any related marketing. 

How will the COA drive traffic to the exhibit hall?

Access to the hall will be prominently displayed on the main tool bar of the virtual meeting platform. Announcements and digital promotion will remind participants to explore the hall and to engage with exhibitors.

How do I get my booth traffic analytics?

After the Virtual Meeting the COA will e-mail you a report of participants who visited your booth including their name, city and province.
