Sponsoring & Exhibition

Ladies and Gentlemen

Thank you for your interest in the Joint Annual Meeting 2021 of the Swiss Society for Infectious Diseases (SSI), the Swiss Society for Hospital Hygiene (SSHH), the Swiss Society of Tropical Medicine and Parasitology (SSTMP) and the Swiss Society of Tropical and Travel Medicine FMH.

For this Joint Annual Meeting in Lugano, Switzerland, we expect about 450-500 participants coming from the fields of Infectious Diseases, Hospital Hygiene and Tropical and Travel Medicine. Therefore, this meeting is a unique chance for medical and pharmaceutical companies as well as other related organisations, giving the opportunity to 

  • showcase and market the broad range of products and services to a specialised target group
  • get in contact with several decision makers of the involved associations
  • raise the awareness for your company and products through the acknowledgement as Partner and/or Exhibitor in the program and on the congress website

The goal of the scientific program is to bring the disciplines together and to combine the interests from the members of the involved societies into different parallel sessions with relevant topics for clinical sciences. Especially now with the corona pandemic, the Joint Annual Meeting is more important than ever and the exchange between colleagues as well as between the societies and the industry is more interesting and more necessary than ever.

The main topics of the Joint Annual Meeting 2021 revolve around:

  • Novel antibiotics strategies / resistance
  • Investigations from the Swiss HIV and Transplant Cohort Studies (SHCS and STCS)
  • COVID-19
  • Vaccines
  • Fungal infections – clinical & basis research (Fungal Infection Network of Switzerland, FUNGINOS)
  • Infection control and hospital epidemiology

The lectures and presentations will be complemented by free communications, poster flashes, workshops, two award ceremonies and general assemblies of the societies. Further, there will be an industry exhibition and complementary satellite symposia, where you as sponsors can contribute to the presentation of the congress.

Your presence is highly valuable! Please do not hesitate to contact us to get detailed information about the sponsoring possibilities for this congress.

We would be very pleased to welcome you at the Joint Annual Meeting 2021 and thank you in advance for your appreciated support.
