The International Symposium on Intensive Care and Emergency Medicine (ISICEM) is held every year in March at Square Brussels. Since 1980, it has become one of the largest events in its field and now attracts over 6 000 participants from all over the world.
ESN, together with its sister company Poplar Events, has been in charge of organising the ISICEM event since 2013.
Our role is mainly one of logistics: preparation, organisation and follow-up. A permanent team of 10 people manages the project and 60 to 70 external staff take care of the installation and dismantling of the stands, registration area, conference room and decoration.
As part of our tasks, we also develop a touch-screen application and a mini website which displays scientific posters based on a search by category, author’s name, or keyword. The application is updated every year and IT support is provided during the event. ESN also creates a specific website for each event, which all the general information for the public.
