Hands-On Demonstrations

The IMAST meeting is known for cutting edge science, paired with sessions that facilitate personal contact between delegates and innovators of the latest advances, including an opportunity to experience those products in an interactive environment.

In continuing that tradition of collaborative education, the Instructional Course Lectures (ICLs) will provide CME-accredited, balanced, and didactic education. Each ICL will then be followed by a 45-minute Hands-On Demonstration (HOD), where multiple Corporate Partner companies will showcase, discuss, and demonstrate products and techniques relevant to the techniques discussed in the corresponding ICL.

The format of the HODs is intended to be a free-flowing discussion between delegates and company instructors, guided by the specific topic of the session. Delegates are encouraged to visit all the companies present in an HOD, in an effort to gain a balanced view of the treatment options available. Refreshments will be available during the morning HODs and lunch will be served during the afternoon demonstrations.
