Sponsor Testimonials

"The Raspberry Council has been an active participant at SCAN Symposiums over the last several years.  For the first time this past year we sponsored a cooking demonstration during lunch on the versatility and nutrition of frozen raspberries.  Many attendees came by our booth afterwards to talk about raspberries -- what a wonderful way to connect with health care professionals and build relationships!"   - The National Processed Raspberry Council, June 2014

“CanolaInfo prioritizes sponsoring SCAN’s annual meeting because it is well attended and well run. It features top shelf speakers and cutting edge researchers, some of whom we have the opportunity to sponsor. SCAN organizers always ensure that sponsorships are a win-win for their members and sponsors in terms of relevancy and uniqueness. Their professionalism and responsiveness are second to none. We would absolutely recommend SCAN to other potential sponsors.”  - CanolaInfo, November 2012
