Celebrating Over 80 Years Of Service!

The American Academy of Otolaryngic Allergy (AAOA) represents over 2,700 Board-certified otolaryngologists and health care providers. Otolaryngology, frequently referred to as Ear, Nose, and Throat (ENT), uniquely combines medical and surgical expertise to care for patients with a variety of conditions affecting the ears, nose, and throat, as well as commonly related conditions. AAOA members devote part of their practice to the diagnosis and treatment of allergic disease. The AAOA actively supports its membership through education, research, and advocacy in the care of allergic patients.

2023 Exhibit and Sponsorship Opportunities

Advance the comprehensive management of allergy and inflammatory disease in
Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery through training, education, and advocacy.


Who We Are

The AAOA is one of the largest national otolaryngology specialty societies, representing approximately one-third of the practicing otolaryngologists. Our members represent the core of the private practice general otolaryngologists, who are the decision makers in their groups as well as key leaders in academic otolaryngology. Our members include the broader management of allergy and related inflammatory diseases of the respiratory tract within their daily ENT practice, blending surgical and medical management, in addition to general ENT, rhinology, and pediatric ENT. Our 2,000+ physician members have a real impact on today’s ENT practice and patient care. While many of our members consider themselves general ENTs, we have many who focus on rhinology, pediatrics, geriatrics, sleep medicine, and asthma.

Our member-based demographic includes physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and allied health professionals who work alongside the physician in day-to-day patient care. This increases our educational outreach to a total member base of more than 2,500 active members. 2023 AAOA Exhibitor Prospectus

What to Expect

To help navigate today’s challenges, AAOA is thinking beyond the “typical” CME event to embrace new ways to give you access to our members — your targeted demographic. All of the 2023 educational meetings are hybrid.

While we continue to find engagement opportunities during the in-person and live-stream components of our educational meetings, we are also offering opportunities for participation beyond our in-person or live-stream efforts to help give you year-round visibility and access.  We continue to offer:

  • Corporate Advisory ThinkTank
  • Web-based Resource Center – Free listing until 12/31/2023 for all 2023 Corporate Sponsors and Exhibitors
  • Satellite Programming from product theaters to demo labs
  • Practice Resource programs
  • and more

Our education programs feature national and international leaders in otolaryngology, who led discussions on cutting-edge clinical care issues that affect all practicing general otolaryngologists. Topics range from focused discussions on allergy, asthma, rhinology, sinus surgery, laryngology, cough, otology, pediatrics, sleep, and general ENT to cutting-edge advances in the medical and surgical management of ENT patients. 2023 will continue to shed light on the emerging role of biologics in ENT and inflammatory disease management, as well as other new pharmacotherapy and office-based interventions.

Why Participate

The vision within the AAOA’s mission is:

Otolaryngology–Head and Neck Surgery practitioners integrate the comprehensive management of allergy and inflammatory disease into daily patient care.

To support this vision, we have targeted the following goals:

  • Train Otolaryngology—Head and Neck Surgeons and practices in the diagnosis, testing, and treatment of allergy and inflammatory disease.
  • Lead professional societies in the innovative delivery of educational content.
  • Advocate for the business and practice of managing allergy and inflammatory disease in Otolaryngology–Head and Neck Surgery

As a corporate partner, we invite you to share in our mission. Much of what AAOA is striving for aligns with your corporate and product goals.  Working together we can help AAOA members and program participants expand their clinical knowledge and skills to treat their patients more effectively.  Beyond that, we can partner on innovative ways to bring educational content to practicing otolaryngologists.

In the realm of partnership, we invite you to take advantage of our 2023 corporate opportunities to focus on a well-defined, motivated, target demographic for new client development, as well as a chance to connect with existing clients.
