15th Annual NCS Meeting - Neurocritical Care Society


Event Overview:

In 1999, seven neurointensivists decided to create an independent, international, multidisciplinary organization  with the mission to improve outcomes for patients with life-threatening neurological illnesses. From this grassroots beginning, the Neurocritical Care Society has grown to over 1,400 members from across the globe. NCS's Annual Meeting has also grown steadily, attracting over 1,000 attendees in 2014 and 2015. Our organization is a  leader in the Neurocritical Care field and a trusted resource for information on quality patient care, professional collaboration, research, advocacy and training and education.

This year's meeting will integrate cutting edge scientific sessions with a casual resort atmosphere.

Exhibitor Information:

We invite you and your organization to partner with us in this good work and we continue to improve outcomes for patients with life threatening neurological illnesses.

Exhibitors at the Neurocritical Care Society’s Annual Meeting will enjoy unparalleled access to over 1,000 members of the neurocritical care field. In addition to a booth, exhibitors will enjoy acknowledgement in our program and acknowledgement on the Annual Meeting webpage.

About NCS:

With a worldwide membership of multi-professional health care providers, the Neurocritical Care Society is dedicated to improve the health care and outcomes of patients with life-threatening neurological illnesses by promoting quality patient care, professional collaboration, research, training and advocacy.
