CREF Exhibits and Industry Opportunities

Since 1980, active industry participation has proven vital to the overall CREF experience. Attendees view CREF exhibits to learn about state-of-the-art devices, services, and pharmaceutical advances that enable them to provide optimal patient care. Industry leaders enjoy opportunities for meaningful face-to-face interaction, sharing new products and meeting new clients, ensuring a high return on investment.


Each year, CREF exhibits attract attendees from across the globe at the Cardiothoracic Surgery Symposium. For thirty-six years, CREF has been meeting the specific educational needs of perfusionists, cardiothoracic surgeons, cardiac physician assistants, cardiac nurses, and other healthcare professionals interested in the science and techniques of perfusion and cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB). This annual CME and CEU symposium offers a perfect opportunity for industry to exhibit cardiovascular products featuring the latest technologies.

Product Theaters

CREF 2019 also offers companies numerous opportunities in addition to exhibiting: industry-sponsored Product Theaters (PTs) give vendors a unique opportunity to reach CREF attendees in new and creative ways by presenting specific information about their products or services. Companies interested in hosting Product Theaters are not required to exhibit at the CREF meeting in order to sponsor a Product Theater. However, exhibitors enjoy first preference on PT time slots. Contact CREF to receive the 2019 Exhibitor & Sponsorship Prospectus, which contains complete details about the opportunities described above.

CREF 2019 provides an environment for biomedical professionals, research and development specialists, and healthcare providers to share and focus their vision for the future of cardiac care. We encourage industry to send management and other high-level representatives; they are included in all educational and recreational activities.

The exhibit fee includes conference registration and invitations to social events for all exhibit reps.
