2014 Sports Medicine Symposium
Sponsors and Exhibitors
Thank you for your interest in supporting the 2014 USA Rugby Medical Symposium.
We are expecting over 100 of the most influential health care professionals in the sport
of rugby to be in attendance at this one-of-a-kind event. Last year’s event had 120
participants from 14 different countries. Roughly 1/3 of the attendees were physicians,
1/3 were athletic trainers/physical therapists and the remaining 1/3 were comprised of
PhDs, chiropractors, massage therapists and other health care professionals.
The purpose of this conference is to share best practices in medical rugby programs
around the world. Yes the world, as this conference takes place during the USA 7’s
International Tournament in Las Vegas – the largest international rugby event in North
America. Televised live on NBC, this event is watched by hundreds of thousands. The
medical conference provides state-of-the-art education to help physicians,
chiropractors, physical therapists, athletic trainers, massage therapist, and strength
coaches continue to provide medical care for those that participate in the game of
rugby. You can help make this happen through your contribution as a sponsor,
exhibitor, and/or advertiser.
At the only conference exclusive to international healthcare providers for the rugby
game, your company will reach key decision-makers for youth and high school teams
and organizations around the country. This is the perfect opportunity to showcase your
products and services. From Orthopedic Surgeons providing state of the art surgical
techniques to Athletic Trainers on the sidelines – this conference integrates all
healthcare professionals in the sport of rugby.
We anticipate spacing and opportunities to go fast, so act now!!! We look forward to
seeing you in Las Vegas!
