Learning Lab space can be booked in the Exhibition Hall for companies who wish to offer onsite training activities during the Annual Meeting.  The space should be used for training purposes only – ie, hands-on workshops including wet/dry/simulation labs or other practical sessions.  These sessions will not form part of the official scientific programme of the Annual Meeting and should be scheduled at pre-defined times on an invitation only basis.  We recommend that you restrict trainings to 10-15 pax per session.

Learning lab space will be offered at a discounted rate for those companies who also book booth space in the Exhibition Hall.

Benefits include:

  • Ability to provide one-to-one training within your own branded area within the Exhibition Hall (NB space only – does not include structure/build costs)
  • control and management of the list of invitees, organisation, on-site management and scheduling of sessions
  • flexibility to promote your company through branding/presentation materials within your area
  • Learning Labs will be specially branded within the Exhibition Hall and advertised in the Annual Meeting App and on the EACTS website.
  • flexibility to promote your company through branding/presentation materials within the room

For further information regarding fees and a plan of the available sites, please contact the EACTS Executive Secretariat Office.
