Exhibits and Marketing

Get global visibility!

Research conducted using C. elegans helps discovery in genetics, neuroscience, behavior, development and more. The 24th International C. elegans Conference is your opportunity to help advance this important research by participating as an exhibitor, through a marketing event, or as a sponsor. Attendees gather from around the world and range in career stage from undergraduates to Principal Investigators. We are excited to be reuniting in-person for the first time since 2019 at the Scottish Event Campus in Glasgow, Scotland. For 2023 we anticipate ~1,000 in-person attendees. Use your marketing dollars wisely by bringing the decision makers to you rather than  having to visit individual labs and institutions.

Attendees are looking for products and services that help every facet of their research. If your company offers items needed for the running of a successful lab, then you should definitely be a part of this conference. Please contact Anne Marie Mahoney at mahoney@genetics-gsa.org with any questions. We look forward to seeing you in Glasgow!
