The American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) is the first and largest cancer research organisation dedicated to accelerating the conquest of cancer. Through its programmes and services, the AACR fosters research in cancer and related biomedical science; accelerates the dissemination of new research findings among scientists and others dedicated to the conquest of cancer; promotes science education and training; and advances the understanding of cancer etiology, prevention, diagnosis, and treatment throughout the world.


The American Association for Cancer Research prevents and cures cancer through research, education, communication, collaboration, funding, and advocacy. For this reason, The American Association for Cancer Research required an efficient and easy-to-use event management system. Advanced Communities provided its AC Events component for organising and managing meetings and conferences conducted by The American Association for Cancer Research.


AC Events by Advanced Communities was chosen as the most advanced system and has a number of features, such as: support for free and paid events, secure credit and debit card payments, community and guest users’ registrations, customisable dietary and event preferences form, Outlook, Mac and Google Calendars support, Google maps integration, flexible pricing, early bird and premium tickets, email reminders and much more.

Benefits and Result
