Membership is renewed on an annual basis and in common with ordinary membership, Corporate and Associate membership runs from April to March.

One meeting sponsor is invited per meeting. Meeting sponsorship cost differs depending on the exact format of the meeting (i.e. including/excluding workshop), and typically includes a 30 minute presentation slot at the start of the scientific session. Sponsors are kindly requested to provide a speaker and presentation in keeping with the theme of the meeting. Commercial presentations are strongly discouraged.

Due to space restrictions up to 3 table top exhibitions (including meeting sponsor) are possible per meeting. These are charged from £200 a time depending on the format of the meeting.

Calls for meeting sponsors and exhibitors are made after each meeting for the subsequent meeting.

The LTG relies heavily on the support of its sponsors, corporate and associate members, without whom the Group would cease to exist.
