Sponsor and Exhibitor Information

More information about opportunities to sponsor and exhibit at NCS 2022 Annual Meeting to come.

The NCS Virtual Annual Meeting allows our partners to reach leaders in the neurocritical care field, including physicians, pharmacists, nurses, and other healthcare professionals. Since meeting attendees are key decision makers on products and spending at their home institutions, our partners were able to maximize their sales potential, expand product awareness and gain insight into the needs of their clients.
