The AATS Daily News is the official daily newspaper of the annual meeting of The American Association for Thoracic Surgery. A new issue of the newspaper is published every day of the meeting for a total of three onsite issues distributed at the meeting and a series of five e-newsletters delivered to 10,000 cardio-thoracic professionals.

Exceptional editorial design and production quality make The AATS Daily News an essential marketing tool for delivering your message to this key audience. All issues of this publication are also available online at, so you can reach all of the attendees as well as those who couldn’t make it to the meeting. There is no better way to reach attendees and prospective attendees before, during, and after the 2019 Annual Meeting than by advertising in The AATS Daily News.

Cover tips, and other marketing opportunities, are available for sponsorship.
