Exhibition Sponsorship

The SOE2017 will be a hallmark event in ophthalmology worldwide. It offers a unique platform for you to interact with an international group of ophthalmologists, surgeons, and researchers as well as keep them informed of the latest product advancements and industry trends. Together with an outstanding scientific programme, world-class venue and facilities, Barcelona is the ideal destination for the Congress.

Congress Venue

The SOE2017 Congress will take place at the CCIB from 10 – 13 June 2017. The CCIB has excellent facilities with plenty of space for both scientific meetings and a large commercial exhibition. The exhibition area will draw in all congress delegates and visitors, and will include exhibits, internet area and catering. Electronic posters areas and the main session halls are located close to the exhibition area, allowing exhibitors to enjoy maximum attendance on their stands.

Profile of Attendance

The Congress will have an exciting four-day programme and an extensive trade exhibition. The Congress historically draws over 4 000+ of the world’s leading researchers and providers of services, equipment, products and aids for people within the diverse spheres of ophthalmology and related sectors. These participants are not only from Europe but also from the USA and the Middle East and at SOE2015 in Vienna delegates came from 100 different countries. The activities and events associated with the Congress 2017 offer a unique opportunity for companies to reach this highly influential international audience through exhibition and sponsorship participation.



Scientific Programme

The scientific programme arrangements are well under way and will include an outstanding array of European and overseas invited speakers. Importantly, the scientific programme will span the latest developments and best practice in ophthalmology. The Programme will cover the full curriculum of Ophthalmology, with ample choice for participants from any background and with all interests. As at the SOE2015 Congress there will be symposia organised by all the major European Subspecialty Societies and Supranational Organisations.
