Symposium Guidelines

  • No competing events are held during Satellite Symposia, with the exception of the Monday and Tuesday breakfast slots when a limited audience community meeting may be offered.
  • All events, with the exception of the Monday mid-afternoon slot, must provide an appropriate meal.
  • CPNP will assign one dedicated meeting room to Symposia. This room will be set banquet style (rounds) for approximately 450 attendees.
  • With the use of one dedicated meeting room for all Symposia and a tight schedule, a standard room set and basic audiovisual package are required and are included in the fee.
  • Symposia providers must use CPNP's preferred audiovisual provider for additional equipment and services.
  • Once CPNP confirms your meeting room, time slot, and topic, all arrangements and expenses for catering (not applicable for Monday mid-afternoon slot) and other meeting services will be the responsibility of the supporting organization or their assigned contractor.
  • A speaker ready room is provided.
  • In-person attendance must be open to all CPNP Annual Meeting attendees and is only available to individuals registered for the CPNP Annual Meeting. Attendance can be capped with permission from CPNP.
  • Live streaming of the event (audio and event screen/presentation) will be provided by CPNP. Virtual attendance at industry events is open to anyone, including those not registered for CPNP 2022, but it does require creation of a free account to access the stream real-time on cpnp.org.
  • If Audience Response System (ARS) usage is included in the event, the cost and coordination is the responsibility of the supporting organization/coordinator. With live streaming to virtual learners, use of an online ARS platform is encouraged with usage instructions detailed in the presentation. The ARS will not be embedded in cpnp.org.

  • All fees are due within 30 days of slot assignment. 
  • Multiple uses of the same speakers between events is discouraged. CPNP must approve speakers as a result.

CPNP intends to be live in San Antonio but the ever-evolving COVID pandemic will be closely monitored and, if absolutely necessary, all attendees, product theaters, and symposia will be converted to a virtual offering. Other sponsorships would be refunded in full or transferred to CPNP 2023 in Atlanta.
