Statistics gathered from previous in-person ONS Congress Event Opportunities. 

NCPD Symposia

Host a breakfast, lunch, or dinner event to educate nurses on the topic of your choice and offer additional contact hours of continuing nursing education.

Non-NCPD Symposia

These informational presentations give you a chance to share valuable knowledge with attendees, while providing them with the opportunity to network with other nurses over breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

Theater Presentations

Take advantage of this opportunity to offer non-NCPD presentations to attendees during learning hall time.

Ancillary Events

Any event wherein you are inviting more than ten (10) ONS Congress attendees, onsite or offsite. All Ancillary Events require ONS approval and incur the Ancillary Event fee. Onsite space will be accommodated firstcome, first-served.

Meeting Space

Set aside space for internal staff meetings or speaker ready rooms (no ONS attendees). The rooms assigned for these events hold a maximum of 10–15 people.

Included with your Symposia or Product Theater Presentation Packages:

  • Standard room set up (as determined by ONS, diagrams available on Event Resources page)

  • Standard A/V set-up. Detailed equipment provided upon request and available on the Event Resources page.

  • (1) Wireless lead retrieval scanner

  • On-site signage with a schedule of events

  • Listing in the conference guide

  • Learning Hall Theater Presentations: three exhibit hall badges are included with your event. Additional badges may be purchased for $50. All staff must have a badge to enter the Hall.

  • Information and session description (and link to registration site if provided by sponsor) in the conference scheduling app and website. Must meet provided deadlines in order to guarantee inclusion signage, in the conference guide, in the app and the website. If not received by the indicated deadline, ONS will use the information provided on the event application.

  • Food and beverage is not included and is the responsibility of the sponsor.


Requests for non-CNE symposia, theater presentations, ancillary event space, and meeting space must be in writing and must come directly from the sponsoring company or institution. Third-party requests will only be accepted for CNE symposia. Earliest dated request will have preference if companies reach equal point totals. If requests arrive on the exact same date, ONS reserves the right to assign space based on a company’s previous support of ONS.

NCPD and Non-NCPD Symposia Availability

ONS limits the number of events taking place at any given time to maximize attendance and provide an increased demand. Spaces fill up quickly, so book your program soon and be sure to indicate your first, second, and third choice on your symposia application. You will receive your space assignment in December 2018.

Room Sets and Audio/Visual

Symposia rooms will be set in rounds. Because of the number of events and associated time constraints, you must use the
provided set and we reserve the right to refuse requested changes. Details of the room set and what is included will be
sent with your confirmation letter. All industry-sponsored events are required to use Shepard AV. Details will be included
with your meeting space confirmation.
