Sponsorship & Supporter Opportunities

The Chandler Project’s 3rd annual Achondroplasia Research Conference continues to provide education and resources on the latest research and development in pharmaceutical advancements and surgical treatments for patients with the most common form of dwarfism, achondroplasia.

Based on the attendance numbers from our 2019 and 2020 conferences, we’re anticipating a total of 175+ attendees (achondroplasia AND hypochondroplasia patients, families, and caregivers) from across the U.S. to attend [in-person & virtually] our 2021 hybrid conference. This event will be available for those outside the U.S.

NEW THIS YEAR – While new therapeutic developments for achondroplasia are underway, patients with hypochondroplasia will soon have this benefit as well. This year, we are excited to have Dr. Andrew Dauber, Chief of Endocrinology at Children’s National, presenting on his current research study – the use of Vosoritide in patients with hypochondroplasia. In addition, we have had patients with other forms of dwarfism & skeletal dysplasia express interest in hearing about limb lengthening treatment.

As a sponsor, exhibitor, or supporter of this highly anticipated event, you will have the opportunity to connect with patients & their families, caregivers, lead experts in achondroplasia & hypochondroplasia research, and healthcare professionals who share the same values as you and most importantly, connect directly with the patients.

COVID-19 NOTICE – The health and safety of patients and conference attendees are our top priority. Due to COVID-19, this will be a hybrid event, thus offering attendees the option to attend in person or online. By doing this, there will be a limited number of how many can attend in person. This conference will follow Maryland State and Baltimore City guidelines.

AUDIENCE – The success of our past two conferences confirms that this event fills a void in the achondroplasia (ACH) community. No other event in North America brings together pharmaceutical companies, researchers, and world-renowned orthopedists specialized in limb lengthening for ACH. Patients, caregivers, researchers, and physicians see the value in this event and understand its importance.

WHO WILL ATTEND THIS YEAR:

  • Achondroplasia & Hypochondroplasia patients
  • Caregivers (Parents, family members of patients, etc.)
  • Researchers
  • Physicians (Endocrinologists, Geneticists, Orthopedists, etc.)
  • and more…

WHY THEY WILL ATTEND
Content: This is the only event that provides patients with information directly from the sources themselves.

Crucial: With the hope that a drug for ACH will be on the market later this year, this audience is desperate. Patients who don’t qualify for the potential new treatment(s) or enrollment in studies and trials are eager to know what other options are available – i.e., limb lengthening.

Ease: This event serves as a “one-stop-shop” for this audience. Pharmaceutical treatments and limb lengthening are the only options available for ACH patients. No other event brings these companies and physicians together to speak directly to patients and caregivers.
