  • A green EULAR 2017 takes over IFEMA
    It is one of the continent's XXL congresses, an essential moment in the healthcare world, which gathered 14,300 professionals. The EULAR congress brought together doctors, scientists, health professionals and representatives from the pharmaceutical industry around the world, from 14th to 17th of June. Quite an organisation challenge! We spoke with Antonio Guadagnoli of MCI Group, OPC who was in charge of organizing the congress and we review some of the highlights of the same.

    Exhibition area. Large stands and striking designs are key to draw the congressman’s attention to the stands. So the stands featured elements that transmitted the identity of the exhibitor through music, rest areas with wifi and connections to charge smartphones, working areas, coffee and drinks, virtual reality animations to fully understand the various products and their healing impact, etc. An example: Roche's booth was inspired by nature, with pink trees and country sounds. Pharmaceutical company Otezla imitated the European cafés including the typical terraces, with stone-style flooring and vintage walls, where congressmen could enjoy a coffee while keeping informed about the products. Innovation is galore in a large congress like this one.

  • Great technology and fluid formats: 7,000 air traffic control professionals gather at IFEMA
    From 7th to 9th of March 2017, the World ATM congress was held in IFEMA, organized as in its previous editions by Conference Studio. A 5th edition which stands out for its technical improvements as well as a constant mix of training, exhibition and networking, a key combination to maximise engagement. The result: a resounding success and an obvious satisfaction of the association, which has decided to extend its contract in Madrid and with Conference Studio until 2022.

    Figures looking up. There is no doubt about the health of a congress that arrived in Madrid with the ambition of having 3,000 attendees: this edition reached 7,000 attendees, a considerable increase compared to 5,000 last year. According to Smara Iglesia, head of Conference Studio, "when you know a congress from birth, you are much better able to improve in each edition.
  • Close to 8,000 nephrologists gather in IFEMA for the ERA-EDTA
    Great moment for the “kidney community” which came to Madrid to celebrate the ERA-EDTA Congress (European Renal Association-European Dialysis and Transplant Association). A congress which has a clinical approach that is much appreciated by the participants, but also a careful eye towars basic science, and consequently gathers a very large attendance.

    Change and innovation have been on the agenda of ERA-EDTA for years already. If inovation includes technology, then the association fares well. It launched an app years ago and constantly improve it. Last year ERA-EDTA also launched an e-learning platform that makes the congress content availabe for the whole year. To get everyone aboard the social train is also very active on social media. All of this enable an interesting interactive.
