The deadline to submit a Notice of Intent to Support/Exhibit Application is September 1, 2021.
Dear Supporters and Friends:
We invite you to participate in the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium December 7-10, 2021 at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas. This international scientific symposium is the premier event for researchers, health professionals, and those with a special interest in breast cancer. The symposium, which will be held December 7-10, 2021, offers attendees the unique opportunity to participate in person in San Antonio, Texas, or virtually.
The Symposium has worked to provide state-of-the-art information on developments in breast cancer, aiming to achieve a balance among clinical, translational, and basic research for forty-four years. Patient benefit is the ultimate outcome and through SABCS and its post-symposium resources, such as the SABCS Sessions On Demand, your support has helped professionals from all over the world come together for an important exchange of information. Your support has also enabled us to disseminate that information worldwide. Those of you who have worked with us through the years are a positive force in the progress of breast cancer research and treatment. For all of this we are deeply and sincerely grateful.
The SABCS hybrid meeting will allow onsite exhibit booths and a virtual exhibit hall experience. This new meeting model will cater to both onsite and virtual meeting attendees and allow the SABCS to switch very quickly to a 100% virtual meeting, if necessary.
For the safety of our participants, we have decided to host a hybrid 2021 San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium. For those attending in-person, SABCS is committed to attendees' safety and will adhere to CDC's safety guidelines and protocols. Mandatory masks and COVID rapid check verifications may be required prior to joining the conference. For attendees who are not able to travel, a virtual option with live web streaming is available.
IMPORTANT: As the pandemic continues to evolve, if we are not able to conduct this conference in-person, we will convert the entire conference to a virtual/we stream conference.
The Symposium provides a forum for interaction, communication, and education. SABCS attracts thought-leaders, academic and private physicians and researchers, as well as other health care professionals focused on curing breast cancer. SABCS facilitates discussion and education about new and late-breaking research including experimental biology, etiology, prevention, diagnosis, and therapy of breast cancer and pre-malignant breast disease, as well as new findings from clinical trials. The Symposium also attracts young investigators by providing superior education and training opportunities for the next generation of breast cancer researchers.
This prospectus provides a snapshot of what the Symposium has to offer and highlights important information related to your exhibit experience.
Sponsorships have been changed in order to provide a broad range of opportunities. We hope that, whether you are a past supporter or new to SABCS, you will find a level of participation that is comfortable for you and of mutual benefit to us all. If you are considering supporting SABCS, then we hope that you will find that the options offered in this prospectus meet your needs.
You are invited to contact the symposium office at

We look forward to
hearing from you very soon.
