NOW TWICE
PER YEAR!
The Cardiometabolic Risk Summit is dedicated to translating
late-breaking clinical research on cardiometabolic syndrome
risk reduction into practical and targeted education that
can easily be applied to real-world clinical scenarios in
the primary care setting. Primary care physicians (PCPs)
and allied health professionals are optimally positioned
to combat the increasing prevalence of cardiometabolic
syndrome by addressing prevention and risk reduction,
as well as treatment, monitoring, and essential patient
education and involvement.
Led by PCPs and other clinical experts, the Cardiometabolic
Risk Summit is designed to stimulate discussion and offer a
forum in which best practices in cardiometabolic syndrome
risk reduction and management can be shared among
primary care colleagues from across the United States. The
agenda for this fully accredited CME/CE conference features
large group sessions and highly focused, small group
workshops, each led by well-respected physicians and allied
health professionals with an expertise in cardiovascular
disease (CVD), diabetes, and obesity. Through cutting-edge
educational sessions enhanced with effective, applicable
best practice recommendations, PCPs will be provided the
vital tools necessary to turn the tide of the cardiometabolic
syndrome epidemic.
The Cardiometabolic Risk Summit will convene PCPs,
internists, general practitioners, nurses, nurse practitioners,
physician assistants, certified diabetes educators, dietitians,
and other related healthcare professionals involved in the
treatment of patients at risk for cardiometabolic syndrome.
ACCREDITATION
The Cardiometabolic Risk Summit will submit for accreditation
with and/or is accredited by the following associations:
 American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP)
 American Academy of Nurse Practitioners (AANP)
 North American Center for Continuing Medical Education (NACCME)

Facts about
Cardiometabolic
Syndrome
Cardiometabolic syndrome — a constellation of
risk factors including hypertension, dyslipidemia,
insulin resistance, and obesity that increase the
risk of CVD — is a nationwide epidemic, affecting
approximately 1 in 3 adults in the United States.¹
In fact, patients with cardiometabolic syndrome
are twice as likely to develop CVD within 5 to 10
years compared with individuals without these
risk factors.² The risk for type 2 diabetes is even
more alarming as cardiometabolic syndrome
increases the likelihood of developing this
condition fivefold.³

TERMS & CONDITIONS
This form indicates the policies and regulations set forth as part of the contract for
sponsorship with CRS. CRS reserves the sole right to render all interpretations, to amend and
enforce these policies and regulations, and to establish any and all further regulations not
specifically covered below to ensure the general success and well being of the conference.
CRS reserves the right to decline, prohibit, and/or deny any sponsorship that in its sole
judgment is contrary to the character, objectives, and best interests of the conference or
suitable for its attendee audience.
General Exhibit Information All exhibits must be set 3 hours prior to the opening of
the first day of show without exception. No exhibitors may dismantle exhibits until the
official closing time. CRS reserves the right to assign booth space. All booths must reflect
a uniform image. Each exhibitor will be permitted to display the following items only:
literature, logos, company signs, and samples.
Exhibitor Services The following services will be provided for exhibitors at no additional
charge: 7” × 44” identification sign, 8-foot-high back wall, and 3-foot side drape. The
official decorating and drayage company of CRS will provide and distribute an exhibitor kit
containing literature and rates for all services and equipment. All furnishings and special
requirements should be ordered through that decorating company.
Ceiling Height No hanging sign or booth display may exceed 8 feet in height with the
exception of island booths and perimeter booths. Companies in island or perimeter booths
must contact show management for booth displays exceeding 8 feet for restrictions.
Exhibit Coordinator The official decorating company will direct and manage all of the
following services and will have a service desk in operation at the time of installation and
dismantle:  Exhibitor service manual distribution  furnishings  labor  rent or exhibit
displays  signage  material handling services  transportation services.
Exhibitor’s Information Kit A complete Exhibitor’s Information Kit containing all the
necessary order forms for drayage, electrical service, furniture rental, carpeting, cleaning,
etc., will be emailed to each exhibitor 60 days prior to the show. The official decorating
company of CRS will also provide instructions within the kit so forms may be processed online.
Photography in the Exhibit Hall The use of cameras (including but not limited to
cellular phones, film, digital video taking, or image or sound capturing) or audio taping
equipment is prohibited anywhere during the conference without prior permission from
CRS and/or the presenting author.
Subletting of Space The exhibitor agrees that the display will be confined to the area of
space reserved and that subletting or showing products other than those manufactured
or represented by the exhibitor is strictly prohibited.
Policy for Assignment of Space All applications for space must be submitted on an
agreement form. Please keep a copy for your records. It is not always possible to assign
one of your preferred choices. However, the management company will try to assign a
space in your requested area. The primary consideration in the assignment of space to
exhibitors shall be in the best interest of CRS. CRS may, at its discretion, accept or reject any
application for space and reserves the right to relocate or reassign exhibit booths at any time.
Space assignments are contingent upon a timely receipt of application, the size of exhibit
requested, physical layout and characteristics of the exhibit hall, compatibility of exhibitors,
and other factors as determined by CRS, such as overall support of the meeting.
Terms of Payment/Cancellation Prices of exhibit booths are as indicated on the exhibitor
agreement. Applications for each exhibit space must be accompanied by a 50% deposit
in the form of a credit card payment, check, or money order made payable to naccme, LLC.
The balance of the payment shall be due no later than 6 months prior to show. Applications
submitted after 6 months must be accompanied by payment in full. Should any contingency
prevent CRS or exhibition from occurring, CRS shall not be held liable for any expenses
incurred by exhibitors. If CRS receives written notice of space cancellation prior to 6 months,
a 50% refund of the total booth fee will be made. Cancellations after this will result in
the forfeiture of the total booth fee. Notice of cancellations must be submitted in writing.

services kit containing literature and rates for all labor, services, electrical connections,
furniture, and miscellaneous equipment to exhibitors 60 days prior to show. Please

Arrangement of Exhibits The exhibitor agrees to manage its exhibits so as not to obstruct
or interfere in any way with the general view, the view of the exhibits of other exhibitors, or
the free passage of spectators. The decision of CRS as to what constitutes such obstruction
or interferences will be final.
Care of Space The exhibitor agrees not to deface, injure, or mar the exhibition hall, any of
the furniture or fixtures contained therein, and/or any of the property of whatever nature
placed therein. All materials used by exhibitors must conform to the requirements of the
Fire Department. X-ray equipment is to be disconnected.
Security CRS will provide around-the-clock security to control access to the exhibit hall
and this will continue during exhibit hall hours. CRS and the conference center are not
responsible for loss of or damage to exhibitor property. Exhibitors will be required to
display proper credentials to gain access to the floor.
Liability CRS will not be liable for any damages in the event that performance of this
contract is rendered impossible for any of the following causes: destruction of the exhibit
hall or any substantial portion thereof by fire, earthquake, the elements, a public enemy,
strikes or other public disorder, impossibility of performance created by lay or any public
authority, and/or for any cause beyond its control or the control of the conference center.
Children Under no circumstances will children under the age of 18 be allowed in the exhibit
hall during installation or dismantle. For reasons of insurance, children are not permitted
on the show floor. Due to limited seating capacity and the highly technical nature of the
programs, children are not invited to attend presentations.
Shipping Instructions Please ship early and prepay all transportation charges. Collect
shipments will not be accepted and all shipments should be labeled with a return
address. Additional shipping instructions and labels will be provided in the decorating
kit. All shipments should be packed securely and fully prepaid. Bills of lading should be
forwarded to the drayage agent when shipment is made. Each exhibitor agrees to ship
his/her materials at the company’s own risk and expense.
Conduct of Exhibits All booths must be uniform. Interviews, demonstrations, and
distribution of literature or samples must be made within the booth area assigned to the
exhibitor. Canvassing or distributing of promotional materials outside the exhibitor’s own
booth will not be permitted. Any and all educational activities conducted at the booth must
be delivered via headsets — no exceptions. CRS reserves the right to monitor and reduce
the sound of any system so that it does not interfere with the show and/or other exhibitors.
Exhibitors may not serve or dispense food or beverages of any type from their booths or
in the exhibit area without the consent of CRS. No part of the display, including products,
is permitted outside the exhibit space. Products and furnishings should be arranged with
the safety of the exhibitors and attendees in mind. Each exhibitor must make provisions
for the safeguarding of his goods, materials, equipment, and display at all times. The
exhibit hall will be secure during closed hours, but neither CRS nor the conference center
will be held liable for personal injuries or for damage to property owned or controlled
by the exhibitor in the rented exhibition space. All of the exhibitor’s property should be
deemed to remain under the exhibitor’s custody and control in storage, in transit to or
from, or within the confines of CRS or its service contractor. Each exhibiting company should
acknowledge that it is responsible for obtaining insurance coverage in such amounts as
it deems appropriate to comply with its obligations hereunder and for its own protection.
Each exhibiting company that wishes to insure its exhibit and display materials against
loss of any kind must do so at its own expense.
Electrical Power and Utilities Rates and data on electrical power, telephone connections,
etc., will be provided in the Exhibitor Service Manual from the decorator.
Telecommunication Services Rates and data will be provided in the Exhibitor Service
Manual from the decorator.
