ESN, together with its sister company Poplar Events, has been in charge of organising the International Symposium on Intensive Care and Emergency Medicine (ISICEM) since 2013. In 2020, due to COVID-19 restrictions, ESN helped to move the event online.
The virtual symposium was held in September. ESN used digital platforms and innovative solutions to meet the expectations of event participants and our clients, the Departments of Intensive Care and Emergency Medicine of Erasme University Hospital and Université Libre de Bruxelles.
More than 5 300 people from 114 countries participated in the symposium over three days. There were 400 presentations covering the typical formats you would expect to find at a traditional conference, ranging from debates to round-table discussions to expert talks.
The new e- ISICEM platform also included an online exhibition area, enabling sponsors to showcase their new products and services, as well as an e-Posters digital application which presented all the selected medical abstracts.
The event was a huge success. You can find out more about our other ISICEM events here.
