Industry sessions

The EADV Industry Partners organize several sessions as an adjunct to the EADV Scientific Sessions. The sessions are organized by the companies and feature presentations by experts in the field, panel discussions and other type of sessions.

The industry sessions are a valuable way to learn about new research, techniques or treatments in the field of dermatology and venereology. In addition, some sessions will focus on sharing information about new products, services and/or technologies available.

At the EADV Congress, 2 different types of industry sessions are organized:

Satellite Symposia

Satellite Symposia are organized in the main session rooms and take place during the morning, lunch breaks and after the last session of the day. These sessions last between 45, 60 and 90 minutes and offer a wider education on the presented topic to remain updated on any progression in the field.

Industry Expert Hubs

Industry Expert hubs are organized in Hall 4 and Hall 5 of the RAI Amsterdam. These sessions last 45 minutes and are focused on bringing together a smaller group of experts to discuss more in-depth or to focus on a specific topic.

The session programme will be published here on Monday 26 August.

The industry session organiser is solely responsible for keeping any of its industry sessions activities compliant with all relevant laws and regulations. EADV is not involved with in or have any control over the content, quality, organization, operation, scientific integrity of the activity and materials. EADV will not be involved in the selection of speakers, moderators and other faculty.
