Sponsorship & Exhibition

Dear Prospective Sponsor,

On behalf of the ESP Executive Committee and the Congress Organizing Committee, we cordially invite you to participate as a sponsor or an exhibitor at our 15th Congress of the European Society for Photobiology, which will be held in Liège (Belgium), from September 2 to September 6, 2013.

ESP Congresses constitute an important forum for the dissemination of advanced knowledge and technological development in most photobiological fields of research, for scientific discussions and exchange of new ideas and for establishing new collaborations for future research. Helped by the exciting proposals by the ESP Scientific Advisory Board, we put together a scientific program of sessions on a wide range of topics which cover major streams of photobiological sciences. This includes highly relevant, timely, cutting edge symposia. Beside plenary lectures and symposia, we have introduced keynote lectures on emerging topics. We have also aimed to favour active contribution of young scientists in the program. Therefore, it is an ideal place to present your company that works in this field to renowned researchers in photobiology and photochemistry as well as to prospective researchers in this field. Besides traditional ways of promoting your society, the ESP offers your company to actively participate at symposia with your target audience through the sponsoring of specific speakers or presentations.

Please download the Sponsor’s prospectus where all the various opportunities for sponsors and exhibitors are fully described.

In addition to providing an exciting venue for scientific exchange and social interaction with colleague photobiologists, Liège is a historical European city (roman vestiges) and a great place to visit. It is centrally located in Europe and easily reached by plane, trains (TGV) and by car. Liège offers an excellent venue for the ESP Congress, at the Palais des Congrès situated along the river “La Meuse”. Lively surrounding districts, cultural and architectural heritage, and wooded hills make Liège a very charming city.

You should not miss this one-of-a-kind opportunity to communicate your company’s message directly to your targeted audiences. We have developed a comprehensive website to keep you and the conference’s attendees informed of the many facets of this exciting event. Last year, our website received over 250,000 hits in anticipation of the conference’s opening, a fantastic way for our sponsors to be visible among our scientific community.

Your qualified and stimulating participation is crucial and we are looking forward to welcoming you in Liège.

Sincerely yours
