Premium Ancillary Educational Event Package
The Premium Ancillary Educational Event Marketing Package is an opportunity for organizers of CE accredited events to feature their event in ASCO-produced meeting materials and products, in addition to other benefits that serve to increase the visibility of their event to potential attendees.
Detailed information about hosting an event is available on each meeting website:
Information for the 2022 Gastrointestinal Cancers Symposium and 2022 Genitourinary Cancers Symposium will be available Fall 2021.

Each year, hundreds of ancillary events are held adjacent to ASCO meetings and symposia. Ancillary events include, but are not limited to:
- Advisory Board Meetings
- Educational Events
- Focus Groups
- Hospitality Suites (in a meeting room)
- Hospitality Desks
- Internal Corporate Business Meetings
- Investigator Meetings
- Investor Meetings
- Social Events
ASCO aims to provide superior customer service to members, volunteers, and meeting attendees. To achieve this aim, ASCO leadership requires all organizations (commercial and non-profit) that wish to hold functions during any ASCO meeting or symposium to complete an Ancillary Event Request. This applies to functions of any size or nature, and in any location. A completed Ancillary Event Request provides ASCO with the necessary information to assist members, volunteers, and meeting attendees with any questions that may arise.
Guidelines and Policies
Organizations submitting an ancillary event request should review the Ancillary Event Guidelines for additional information including:
- Approved activities within ancillary space
- Mailing lists
- Marketing guidelines
- Procedures for activities and events held within and outside of Symposia and Meeting space
In addition to the Guidelines above, ancillary event hosts must comply with the same policies as exhibiting companies.
