Sponsorship and Exhibition
One of the key aspects of the ESB Conferences is that experts in basic biomaterials science, biomaterials development and processing, and clinicians are brought together to discuss the most up-to-date developments in this field and promote the translation of biomaterials from bench to the bedside.
Consequently, the Industrial Exhibition has been a cornerstone of our Conferences, as attendees and Biomedical Companies are brought together in one place. We are especially interested in hosting:
- Biomaterials suppliers
- Newest instruments for all kinds of (bio)material characterisation and processing
- Biomedical companies that bring to the market biomaterial-based products
- Research Instutes
- Biomaterials journals
Therefore, it is our aim to offer you the best conditions to present your products and services, and to communicate with the attendees of the Conference.
We imagine that many of you have been wondering about the ESB 2021 Conference in this time of COVID. The good news is that we will host the 2021 Conference this year from 5th to 9th September, as a face-to-face event!!
The pandemic situation in Portugal has eased. The national 7-day incidence of 30 (as of May 26; Johns Hopkins University) is currently below the critical threshold of 50 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants. Portugal is not considered a risk area. Despite some restrictions to assure safety, cafes, restaurants and shopping centres have reopened. In addition, vaccination against Coronavirus is progressing in Europe at good pace.
We hope that many of participants and company staff will be able and willing to travel to Portugal in September. That is why we have decided to have a semi-hybrid Conference. This means that we are preparing a face-to-face Conference in Porto with as many live lectures and discussions as possible. Plenary, Invited and Keynote speakers that cannot attend will be live streamed into the room. And, of course, needless is to say that we plan to have an industrial exhibition as well!
For those who cannot attend on site, there will be a platform where the presentations and poster will be available on-demand. And of course, in that case, we will assure a virtual exhibition booth too.
We kindly ask you to register by June 15, 2021. Registration for a booth at the Alfandega Congress Center also includes a virtual booth on the virtual platform. If a different health situation should emerge at any time after the early registration deadline, we will change to a completely virtual conference. Also, if it becomes apparent that the majority of attendees and authors have chosen to register for virtual participation only, we will have to switch to a completely virtual conference to assure the quality of the event. In any case, we would switch also your booth for the virtual platform and refund the difference.
We emphatically encourage you to support us and join ESB2021 in September!
