The San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium® offers one of the best experiences for networking every year, with opportunities to meet and engage with breast oncologists, scientists, exhibitors, and advocates.

“It’s an incredibly good networking opportunity,” said Charles M. Perou, PhD, member of the SABCS® Program Planning Committee. “It’s unique to be able to see all these different disciplines at once.”

Virtual networking available

In-person and virtual attendees who have chosen to use the networking feature by opting in can message each other within the virtual platform. They can browse the full list of registered attendees and contact them via email or the chat feature by clicking on their name.

The virtual platform will go live just before the Symposium starts and will be available through March 2024. It is a great resource, not just for connecting with others but for planning time at the Symposium and livestreaming the sessions.

Visit the Exhibit Hall to explore the latest industry advancements in breast cancer prevention and care. This year’s Exhibit Hall has tripled in size over the past few years, with more space for connecting with colleagues and discussing the latest treatments and technologies in breast cancer with industry representatives. The Exhibit Hall will be open 12:00–7:00 p.m. CT on Wednesday and Thursday and 12:00-4:00 p.m. on Friday during the meeting in Halls 2-3 of the convention center.
