Industry sessions

Organising an industry session at the European Respiratory Society’s (ERS) International Congress is an effective way to reach a large audience and offer cutting-edge science, reveal clinical data, or examine case studies in a highly relevant environment.

Face-to-Face opportunities

Following the success of our first hybrid edition, the ERS International Congress 2023 will continue with a hybrid format, allowing the industry to target both the delegates attending the congress on-site and our online audience. The following options are available to book:

  • Six rooms fully equipped with AV and cameras that will allow live broadcasting on the virtual platform
  • Webcasts in almost every room that enable industry sessions to be replayed on the virtual platform until the end December, 2023
  • A full F2F or a full virtual live-streamed symposium

VERY IMPORTANT – AIFA regulations – This year, the Congress being in Milan means that companies need to follow the strict regulations of AIFA (further information on AIFA starts on page 67 of this document).

Important deadlines:

  • 18 March, 2023  – deadline for Pharma Companies without AIFA SIS code to start the procedure
  • 16 June, 2023 – deadline for the Italian Official Agency to receive the documents required for AIFA submission from the organising secretariat
  • 1 July, 2023 – deadline for the Italian Official Agency to upload the application (pre-request) on AIFA website
  • 11 July, 2023 – last deadline for Pharma Companies to complete and validate the application on AIFA website

GENDER AND DIVERSITY – It is the European Respiratory Society’s policy to ensure diversity and equal opportunity when selecting faculty for all ERS scientific and educational events, sessions, and activities. We take this opportunity to advise you that we are keen to see the end of all-male faculty sessions, and although we don’t wish to strictly regulate industry choice of faculty, we do hope to see a change in the approach to faculty selection.
