Kidneys for Life Organization (https://kidneysforlife.org/) is Registered UK Charitable Organization (Manchester, UK).  The Fabry Disease Update Series is sponsored by KFL and is governed by its bylaws.  KFL provides direct financial management and support for the Update series.

COVID: The 2022 Update on Fabry Disease will be organized as a hybrid meeting with approximately 80 Face to Face (FTF) participants and a larger number of virtual participants. In addition to maintaining the secured “bubble”, current vaccination status, and possibly on-site daily PCR-based rapid testing may be required at the time of the meeting. The COVID-related expenses will be “reconciled” after the event. The excess will be returned to the sponsors on a pro-rata basis if the COVID allocation exceeds the COVID-related expenses. Similarly, if the COVID-related expenses exceed the COVID overhead, the sponsors will be invoiced for the deficit on a pro-rata basis.  

 

Sponsors will be allocated a defined number of FTF participants, as indicated in the table.  In addition, any employee of the sponsor who presents a poster at the meeting will be allocated a FTF registration separate from the sponsors FTF participants shown in the table.  These poster presenters will be assessed a registration fee and will not be eligible for a travel bursary.

 

There will not be any opportunities for the sponsors to engage in commercial or marketing activities at the venue (e.g., booths, brochures, exhibits). In lieu of onsite marketing activity, sponsors are encouraged to develop a video-taped presentation (30 minutes) that will be made available on-demand during the 3-day course of the meeting (“Sponsor’s Showcase”) to all registered FTF and Virtual participants. The Sponsor will be responsible for all production costs for their presentations and will retain ownership of the presentation. The presentations will be removed from the website following the conclusion if the meetin

A sponsor may choose to have more than 1 presentation, with a charge of $5,000 for each additional presentation.  Supporting organizations may submit a Showcase item, which will incur a presentation fee of $5,000.

 

Sponsor Showcase presentations may be accompanied by CME accreditation, but that is optional and the sole responsibility of the sponsor.
