Interested in Hosting an AIDS 2012 HUB? Help is Available.
The conference organizers are committed to making the information available to as many people as possible, and one way to access it is to host a conference hub. In our blog post a few months ago, we explained that hubs are locally organized meetings or mini-conferences where stakeholders come to view videotaped sessions from AIDS 2012, happening July 22-27 in Washington, DC. Applications to host a hub are available on the conference website, and are due September 15. The application will request basic information about your plans, including your target audience, date, time, and venue. If you are attending the conference, a hub is an excellent opportunity to bring the conference home and continue the conversation. If you are unable to attend, it is a great way to bring the conference to your local area.
The benefits of hosting a hub include:
- Engagement with local stakeholders
- Free access to key conference sessions
- Strengthening of local networks through the sharing of new information and lessons learned from AIDS 2012
This session is a follow-up to the March 7th webinar, “Exploring the Possibilities and Logistics: How to Host an AIDS 2012 Conference Hub.” If you were not able to participate in the earlier webinar, you can access an event recordingExit Disclaimer, PowerPoint presentationExit Disclaimer (PPT file), and Programme ExampleExit Disclaimer (Microsoft Word file).
