Great Opportunity for AUTM Members Attending AdvaMed & LES Meetings

Attention, AUTM® members! You have a chance to have a prime spot for networking with organizations from every major technology-oriented industry, including medical technologies. That spot: The AUTM booth at AdvaMed 2011 and LES 2011 this fall.

As you might remember from my earlier posts about the 2012 plans for Strategic Alliances for AUTM®, one thing we’re doing this year is attending other association meetings as a way to help connect AUTM members with industries. The first two meetings where we’ll be doing this is AdvaMed 2011 in D.C. in late September and the 2011 meeting of the Licensing Executives Society (LES) in San Diego in mid-October.

AUTM will have a booth in the exhibit hall, and AUTM members are eligible to staff the booth, gaining key access to conference attendees. You can bring materials about your university to distribute while you’re there, providing you with an additional high-exposure marketing opportunity. And don’t forget about those business cards you can collect for follow-up after the meeting.

To sign-up for a 1-hour (or more!) slot at the AUTM booth at AdvaMed 2011 or LES 2011 (or both!), e-mail Jodi Talley at jtalley at

Hope to see you there!
