Conferences can create large amounts of waste however by offering water stations instead of plastic bottled water we can reduce landfill waste, save energy, and enjoy the most sustainable option for our environment. We encourage all delegates to bring their own water bottles to use throughout the meeting.


The committee invites you to use social media to promote the ASM and have dialogue with fellow colleagues in the industry. If you haven’t already, follow us on Twitter at @DermatologyACD and use the hashtag #ACDASM2024 for all ASM-related tweets.


The ASM would not be possible without the support and investment of the sponsors and exhibitors. Please take the time to visit the industry exhibitors who will showcase their goods and services in the exhibition hall from Saturday – Monday.
