We are excited to invite your company to partner with us at our 37th Annual Meeting which will be held at the Hyatt Coconut Point from March 6 - 9, 2025 in Bonita Springs, Florida.

THIS IS NOT YOUR TYPICAL SPONSOR/EXHIBITOR EXPERIENCE! GTSC prides itself on the integral relationship we build with our global sponsors during our meeting.  We learn together, dine together and create shared memories without the typical barriers that separate you from the direct one-on-one networking that occurs at other traditional conferences.  GTSC has developed a straight forward beneficial package that allows sponsors and exhibitors full access to all GTSC scientific programming and social events; providing one-on-one networking opportunities with key decision makers within the general thoracic surgical field!

For over 30 years, GTSC has been the “Who’s Who” of surgeons committed to the practice of general thoracic surgery. This meeting is an invaluable opportunity for you to reach THE key decision makers nationwide on products and spending used for general thoracic patient surgery and care. Increase your sales, increase product awareness and gain insight into the needs of your target audience by connecting with these influential surgeons.

Join Us for our Exhibitor Wine Walk!
GTSC will hold its Exhibitor Wine Walk, after the Thursday educational program from 5:15pm - 6:15pm. Attendees will gather in the exhibit hall where they will be divided among the exhibit tables, and enjoy a sample of the provided wine, while they listen to your 2–3 minute 'elevator pitch'. After three minutes, attendees move onto the next table. Those who visit each booth by the end of Saturday's educational session will be entered into our grand prize drawing! The drawing will take place during the evening Gala Dinner. Attendees who can’t attend the wine walk will still be able to visit booths throughout the conference and be entered in for the grand prize drawing. Participation in the Wine Walk is included with your exhibit booth purchase!
