#Dros21 is going virtual and bringing the latest to Drosophila researchers around the world! In the past, attendance has been limited by travel, time, and financial constraints, but in 2021 the meeting’s reach will expand globally. Your participation will give you an opportunity to connect with scientists everywhere.
When The Allied Genetics Conference (TAGC), which included the 61st Annual Drosophila Conference, went virtual in April 2020, we saw Drosophila community attendance rise from approximately 1,000 people to over 4,500. Those partners who still participated found the virtual conference to be very rewarding and “found more qualified leads than in the past.”
To help create a productive and engaging environment where your reps can get the leads they need, the opportunities being offered have been expanded for our 2021 conferences.
All of the opportunities below include: company logos being displayed on session slides, in the online planner, and in the PDF of the program book, as well as one meeting registration. All companies sponsoring at a level of $2,500 or more will also be included on the dedicated Sponsor web page with their logo, link and a 50-word description and receive 2 meeting registrations. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or to discuss special package rates.
The Annual Drosophila Research Conference is the largest conference of Drosophila researchers, and attendance has remained consistent since 2015.

Remo will be used for exhibits, posters, and general networking. At your table you can meet with attendees in real time using audio and video capabilities. You can also display a poster, advertisement, or video, or share your screen.
Exhibits and posters are set up like a conference center with multiple buildings, floors, and a variety of seating options. When attendees enter the platform, they are randomly assigned to a table. They then move freely around the floors and buildings as space is available. Each table is able to accommodate eight people. This image shows the basic setup.
Exhibit tables are available during the Poster Sessions. All times listed are US Eastern Daylight Time.

Meet New Prospects: Moving from an in-person meeting to a virtual experience allows more people to attend the meeting. All they need is an internet connection—no travel or hotel. More people means more potential leads.
Showcase New Products and Services: Ability to show demo videos and answer questions from the community.
Gain an International Presence: In 2020, for TAGC, there were participants from 79 countries!
Save Money: Hotel, airfare, per-diem, shipping, and other travel costs are eliminated in a virtual meeting, so you can participate at a fraction of the cost of an in-person meeting.
Connect with Your Existing Customers: The conference’s interactive platforms will let you renew your connection with your existing customers.
