Sponsorship & Registration Eligibility and Confirmation Procedure
Through consistent feedback from both our Industry Delegates and Information Provider Delegates, it is clear that everyone strongly emphasises the all
important need for an appropriate balance between numbers of information users and information providers attending the conference. Therefore, the
conference registration policies are in place to accommodate this principle and ensure a highly professional and focused conference, training and exposition
programme, and strategic discourse, as well as a balanced and enriching networking experience.
Attendance and sponsorship is by invitation. Interested individuals or organizations that have not received an invitation and are interested in participating,
should contact the Pharma-Bio-Med Organisers (email@example.com).
Industry Delegate means an individual who is a direct employee of an industrial organisation that produces and sells products (other than any
information related products) such as a chemical, pharmaceutical, electronics or engineering company.
Information Vendor/Producer Delegate means an individual or a representative of an organisation that produces information products or provides
services/consultancy that could be used or bought by Industry Delegates.
Information Vendor/Producer organizations will be invited to participate at the conference through the conference sponsorship programme. A minimum
sponsorship is required to participate. The minimum sponsorship is for an organization with a single brand/product line. Companies with multiple
brand/product lines, or products combined through merger of previous industry players will need to sponsor at an additional level irrespective of whether the
organisation intends to showcase single or multiple product lines. In summary, sponsorship/exhibiting is strictly based on per organisation (entity) basis, as
well as per product/brand line per individual organisation.
A joint venture or joint product between two or more organisations can be represented through a single sponsorship as long as only one of the organisations’
names is displayed, and representatives from only that one organisation staff the exhibit stand. For the other partner company(ies) to be listed (through
signage or any other means), their representatives/employees to be present at the stand, their products (other than the joint product) to be discussed, or to
participate in the conference in any manner, the correct sponsorship level needs to be held by each of the partner organisations. The single brand/product
rule applies in such cases, same as above.
Others: a limited number of lower level sponsorships may be available for some smaller, diverse and start-up Information Vendor/Producer organizations. This
is to facilitate, e.g. innovative tools start-ups the opportunity to have an exhibit stand and demonstrate their products in the exhibits hall.
Registration – Eligibility and Confirmation Procedures:
To maintain the vision for the conference, as well as taking into account the consistent feedback from both our Industry Delegates and Information Provider
Delegates, the conference will be structured to reach an appropriate balance between numbers of information users and information providers attending the
conference. Therefore, the conference registration policies are in place to accommodate this principle.
Priority will be given to Industry Delegates and employees of sponsoring organisations. Consideration will be given to others based on availability and overall
attendance balance, as well as value to the delegates.
Please note that each registration application for attending the conference is subject to final confirmation by the Pharma-Bio-Med organisers via email and
that we do not accept walk-ins. You may wish to wait for this final confirmation prior to booking your flight and hotel.
