About the Meeting
The American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (ACAAI) is pleased to welcome the media to our Annual Scientific Meeting, “Practice Empowerment: Patients. Community. Partners.” The meeting will take place on November 15-19, 2018 at the Washington State Convention Center in Seattle, WA. Our annual meeting is a recognized forum for peer-reviewed presentations of new research by allergists and allied scientists from around the world. It provides plenty of news opportunities for press registrants, including:
- Scientific presentations
- Oral and poster abstract presentations
- Technical exhibits
- Medically challenging cases
Journalists are invited to report on the latest developments in the treatment of allergies, asthma and immunologic disorders — conditions that affect an estimated 50 million Americans.
Abstracts: Abstracts will be published in a supplement to the November issue of Annals of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology, ACAAI’s scientific journal. Journalists covering the meeting can obtain advance copies of selected abstracts by contacting the ACAAI Media Relations staff at firstname.lastname@example.org. The ACAAI embargo will lift on all oral and poster presentations at 12:01 a.m. EST on Friday, November 16, 2018, unless otherwise noted.
Press kit: A press kit containing embargoed news releases will be distributed to media outlets via email, prior to the meeting, on Thursday, November 9, 2018. All embargo dates must be adhered to.
