ISA2015 – digital Meeting Ground & exchange

ISA2015 embraces the advantages of new technology and will offer industry partners new ways to interact with the international audience of cardiovascular specialists:

I-Poster area The poster areas will be fully digital. The Electronic Poster Boards offer the poster presenters convenience and opportunities in presenting their abstracts in a more dynamic and compelling way. The I-Poster Area also brings new opportunities for sponsors to adopt the I-Poster Area, I-Poster Boards or I-Poster Sessions.

ISA2015 tablets Congress attendees will no longer receive heavy abstract books, but receive a tablet upon registration. With the tablet, they will be able to download the ISA2015 congress app, to view presentations in different languages, view abstracts, the final program, speaker biographies and more. The ISA2015 tablets offer new opportunities for our industry partners for advertising or sharing information and documentation.

ISA2015 – Meet, Exhibit & Exchange

ISA2015 acknowledges the value of face-to-face interaction between innovative industry and clinicians. As rooted in the ancient Dutch culture with Amsterdam as a market place for international traders, the exhibit area will be a central part of the conference, and will be your spot for exhibition and exchange. The ISA2015 organization will make every effort to stimulate activity in the exhibition area. The exhibition will be located in a central part of the convention and will function as a connection between scientific sessions, Rapid Fire Arena, the Food Court, and the I-Poster Area. Furthermore, an Innovation Theatre will be located centrally at the exhibit floor offering our industry partners a podium to share and discuss novel clinical developments.

ISA Sponsored Educational Sessions

Industry partners are invited to secure a time slot for industry-sponsored educational sessions (satellite symposia). The sessions are an opportunity to present new clinical developments and discuss new perspectives on particular topics of interest.
