67th IGS Annual & Scientific Meeting 2019 - Sponsorship & Support

Why Participate?

This is the biggest and most important medical conference on ageing to take place in Ireland each year

With over 400 delegates expected to attend, it is renowned for its interdisciplinary nature and the inimitable platform that it presents for professional interchange.  Many high-level gerontology professionals and their teams attend this prestigious event.  The Irish Society of Physicians in Geriatric Medicine has confirmed once again that it will hold its annual national Autumn Meeting as a satellite event to our conference on Friday 28th September.

Sponsorship provides you with a valuable opportunity to have your brands noticed and your organisation remembered by opinion leaders and decision-makers.  It will also afford you the opportunity to showcase your activities and products and to be recognised and acknowledged for supporting this important initiative.

Free seating at our conference dinner - together with co-location of exhibition stands, refreshment pods and poster-boards – facilitates maximum contact with our delegates throughout the programme.  These arrangements ensure exceptional networking opportunities for your representatives and provide a perfect forum to foster new business relationships.
