Satellite symposia are promotional or scientific sessions organized by individual sponsors. These meetings allow for in-depth multidisciplinary presentations and discussions on specific research or educational topics.

Satellite symposia are offered at the Platinum (two symposia) and Gold (one symposium) sponsorship levels. Each symposium is is 90-minute long and may involve one or more speakers and cover one or more topics. If the session is of educational nature, satellite symposia must offer objectivity in the presentation. Please note there should be no indication or implication that the WFH is in any way involved.

The Congress logo can be used and must be reviewed by the WFH when placed on promotional materials.

Conducting a satellite symposium offers you the opportunity to:

  • Highlight topics important to your company’s business strategy
  • Gain access to more industry professionals
  • Increase your visibility among industry professionals and key decision-makers

The following benefits are provided for each symposium:

  • A link on the Congress website to the company hosting the symposium, where delegates can obtain more information on the session
  • One email blast containing symposium session information to be sent to all registered delegates
  • Standard audio-visual equipment. Supplementary equipment and services can be ordered directly from the vendor for an additional fee. Cost sharing will be offered to help reduce upgrade costs.
  • Symposium listing in the Congress at a Glance and Congress app

Boxed lunches are offered Monday to Wednesday to registered attendees and will be served in the Exhibit Hall.

A 45-minute break is allotted to allow attendees to eat before attending lunchtime industry symposia.

Session outlines must be provided to the WFH 2020 World Congress Program Committee by March 20, 2020, for review and to ensure topics do not directly compete with Congress sessions.
