Satellite Symposia

Satellite Symposia

The World Transplant Congress (WTC) is pleased to offer two types of opportunities for Industry-sponsored Satellite Symposia: Luncheon or Evening. Time and available space may limit the number of applications accepted. There is no guarantee any company will be given a luncheon or evening slot. Every effort will be made to accommodate on a first request basis. 


Confirmed Industry Sponsored Satellite Symposia

There are a number of symposia taking place during the WTC.  These are open to all attendees of the Congress.  Although not directly affiliated with the WTC, we urge you to attend these additional educational opportunities.
