Thank you for your interest in being a Sponsor of the International Congress on Manual Therapies Inaugural Conference! This packet includes information on the conference goals and purposes, schedule, speakers, and sponsorship benefits.
There are two important parts to our vision that you need to know about as you consider co-sponsoring this endeavor. An interprofessional/interdisciplinary conference in manual therapies is not a unique idea, nor is having a conference that presents the latest evidence within the field. What is unique is that this conference has been set up to launch an interprofessional international community within manual therapies of clinicians and basic scientists who are dedicated to improving patient care through the scientific advancement of this field. This community, the International Congress in Manual Therapies (ICMT), will work to break down the silos and historic barriers that have hampered the advancement of manual therapies. ICMT will hold regular scientific conferences that will bring members together in a respectful and congenial atmosphere to promote understanding and collaboration.
The second part of this unique vision is that the preparation and design of the inaugural conference demonstrates the collaborative nature of the ICMT. International and interprofessional working groups are already preparing novel, interactive small group sessions for the conference that will set precedence for the type and style of work that will be performed by the Congress in the future. By becoming a sponsor for this conference, you will be able to show your support to this vision, and to share details of your work to a worldwide audience of leaders and pioneers in manual therapies.
The conference’s audience is expected to include practitioners of manual therapy such as athletic trainers, chiropractors,osteopathic physicians, physical therapists, massage therapists, osteopaths, and so forth, as well as researchers in the fields of anatomy, biomechanics, kinesiology, neurophysiology, pain, pathophysiology, etc. Three hundred clinicians and basic scientists will participate live in this conference and hundreds are expected to join online. You will be able to educate all of them of your work by being a conference sponsor. If you are interested in reserving a spot or have questions about the conference, please contact Jessica Corrick at 660.626.2102.
