Industry sessions

Organising an industry session at the European Respiratory Society’s (ERS) 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 hybrid editions, the ERS Congress 2024 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:

  • Seven 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, 2024
  • A full F2F or a full virtual live-streamed symposium

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.
