Promotion of the Area

CRF creates awareness and promotes the Learning Lab. However, the Learning Lab sponsor is strongly encouraged to create their own marketing campaign. CRF will provide the following promotional activities: 

  • Two e-mails to approximately 40,000 people promoting the area, via the TCT newsletter (other content will be included in the newsletter)
  • Listing in the Satellite Symposia Guide, which will include the complete Learning Lab schedule.
    • The Satellite Symposia Guide will be available at satellite symposia kiosks located throughout the convention center
  • Listing on the TCT conference Web site and official meeting app
  • Listing in the online TCT Exhibition Guide
  • Listing on housekeeping slides displayed in the program rooms 

Please note all of the above activities promote the Learning Lab as a whole. Participating companies are strongly encouraged to promote the area independently, as independent promotion has proven to be the most effective means of generating interest. Independent promotional pieces should not imply product endorsement by CRF. All promotional pieces must be approved by CRF prior to distribution.
