“When we made the decision to outsource our exhibition sales and management, Corcoran was the first partner that came to mind,” said Greg Dummer, Chief Executive Officer, American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine. “Having worked with them previously with excellent results, I know that Corcoran will seamlessly integrate into our overall team and manage our exhibition with expertise and superior customer care. We look forward to a great partnership and the continued growth and development of the AOSSM Annual Meeting.”

The Experimental Biology conference and expo is hosted by five scientific societies and Corcoran will be responsible for the event’s exhibit sales program, exhibitor showcase and sponsorship program starting with the 2018 show taking place in San Diego, California.

“Corcoran has seen success in growing exhibit programs in both the Scientific and Medical Sectors. Last month we completed the onsite renewal program for Experimental Biology, resulting in a solid foundation for us to grow the program in the coming year,” said Noreen Burke, Director of Business Development at Corcoran Expositions. “We will be introducing our onsite renewal program to AOSSM exhibitors this summer. Our goal for EB and AOSSM is to familiarize a new group of prospects that we have identified as having strong exhibit potential with these viable market opportunities.”
