The Exhibit Program supports National Cancer Institute mission by providing the means for the Institute to have a visible presence at a variety of professional meetings. NCI exhibits are designed to provide a cohesive forum for informing basic and clinical cancer researchers and health professionals about NCI programs, products and services as well as to receive feedback from our targeted groups.
NCI exhibits and provides staff at approximately 20 large professional meetings each year. These meetings, mostly national, are selected by their applicability to the overall NCI mission and program needs and applicability to any current Institute priorities. In general, large custom exhibit structures are sent to these meetings. These exhibits are designed to store and display large quantities of printed materials as well as demonstrate online products.
The Exhibit Program also offers logistical support to individual NCI programs that may want to exhibit at smaller, regional, or topic-specific meetings. This support may include the design of program-specific exhibit graphics; loans of portable exhibits; and some logistical support.
