Sponsorship Overview – 2024

The Title Sponsor will choose both an event and a swag item?

Yes. The Title Sponsor will receive both an event of their choice and either a lanyard or a hotel key card with their logo.

For example, the Title Sponsor could choose to sponsor Friday night’s U.S.S. Lexington and a lanyard. (See below for list of available events.)

Due to continuing medical education (CME) rules, the lanyard sponsor may not be the logo of a CME ineligible company (any product that “touches” a patient).

The Circle of Champions will receive either an event to sponsor, the opportunity to provide equipment for the APP course or a swag item?

The Circle of Champions sponsors will choose one of the three items. Contact Bobby@txneurosurgeons.org for more details and availability.

Which sponsors are invited to Thursday night’s Black Tie Dinner?

Title and Circle of Champion sponsors are invited to Thursday night’s Black Tie Dinner, which consists of TANS past presidents, board members and some conference attendees.

Each Title and Circle of Champion sponsor will be provided two complimentary tickets.

Which sponsors are invited to the Friday and Saturday networking events?

All three levels – Title, Circle of Champion and TANS Partners – are invited to the networking events on Friday and Saturday: all meals, the Friday afternoon wine tasting reception and Friday night’s dinner at the U.S.S. Lexington.

What do the exhibits consist of?

Each sponsor, no matter the level, will be provided one standard table (6′ x 30″) and two chairs. Due to limited space, your backdrop must fit within the space of your table (a backdrop cannot be longer than six feet).

The basic exhibitor level is the TANS sponsor level.

What about attendee lists?

Due to continuing medical education (CME) rules, TANS may only share the list of attendees who chose to opt in to have their name shared.

It is TANS’s policy to never share e-mail addresses; TANS is able to share mailing addresses, and you are welcome to send promotional items in the mail.

What events are available to sponsor?

The title sponsor is eligible to both choose and event to sponsor and a swag item.

Circle of Champion sponsors are eligible for either an event sponsorship or a swag item.

The events from which to choose include:

  • Thursday’s Black Tie Dinner
  • Friday Afternoon Welcome Reception
  • Saturday Afternoon’s Wine Tasting Reception
  • Friday Night’s U.S.S. Lexington Dinner
  • Breakfasts on the Morning of Friday and Saturday (No Speaking Opportunities for Sponsors)

The events are first come, first serve.

What swag items are available?

Lanyards and hotel key card are available. If the swag items are taken, and a Circle of Champion would like to sponsor a swag item instead of an event, TANS will work to identify a swag item, such as a wine tumbler with the sponsor’s logo on it.

What are the preliminary set up and take down details?

Set up will be late afternoon/evening of Thursday, February 1.

Take down will begin at the conclusion of Saturday afternoon’s wine tasting reception in the exhibit hall.
