ISPOR 2023 is the leading global conference for Health Economics and Outcomes Research (HEOR), for discussion and dissemination of the latest trends in healthcare. ISPOR 2023 presents a prime opportunity for affiliates of ISPOR – exhibitors, sponsors, supporters, partners, and ISPOR members to hold Affiliate Events in conjunction with ISPOR’s Annual Meeting. All Affiliate Events held in conjunction with ISPOR 2023 are required to adhere to the following process and established criteria for Affiliate Events.

Any Affiliate Event that includes attendance by ISPOR conference delegates regardless of the hosting organization status (exhibitor, sponsor, member, partner, etc), is considered an Affiliate Event and is required to complete a Submission Form for review and approval by the ISPOR Global Events Team.

The designated Venue for ISPOR 2023 is the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center - Please do not attempt to make reservations directly with the BCEC or any ISPOR program hotels before approval. This will forfeit your request for space.

Requests for Affiliate Events held during ISPOR 2023 must be submitted for approval to the ISPOR Global Events Team via this submission form (per event). If you have any questions prior to submitting your Affiliate Event request, please email All required fields must be completed for a submission form to be considered final and for submission to proceed to the review and approval process.

The ISPOR Global Events Team will review submission requests to determine whether the proposed Affiliate Event meets ISPOR criteria. The contact liaison provided with the submission form will be notified by email within ten (10) business days of receipt of the request if the Affiliate Event has been approved.

Upon authorization, the Global Events Team will inform the Venue of the approval and will provide the contact liaison’s name and email.  From that point forward, the approved organization will work directly with the Venue to plan and contract the event.

Once your Affiliate Event has been approved no changes (day, date, time, size, event type) of any kind are allowed without a secondary review of the proposed changes. Should your approved Affiliate Event need to be modified please email for a secondary review and approval. Affiliate Events with modifications that are not approved are subject to cancellation.
