BARCELONA, SPAIN, 2017-08-26 (5 DAYS)
For the 19th time now, mediAVentures is a key supplier at the ESC Congress. The ESC Congress, with more than 30.000 cardiologists from all over the world, takes place in Barcelona again this year. It is the biggest medical congress in Europe and the biggest cardiology congress in the world.
Just like during the previous editions, mediAVentures provides full meeting support for a large part of the event, this includes the design, construction, audio-visual and technical management of several important parts of the congress.
With an attractive set-up and meeting concepts we stimulate learning, networking and community building.
First of all, there is the Spotlight Stage (the “Forum” of last year), a high-end open room with a capacity of about 800 persons where we provide all technical and audiovisual support. The use of HiRes LED, introduced in 2017, stays and we combine it again with a widescreen set-up and 4K/UltraHD projection. It’s also there that we will show the 6 Live-on-Disk videos which have been produced specifically for presentation @ this ESC Barcelona edition. Using different formats we strive for the best education!
There are no outside meetings rooms this year like we had in Rome last year. Although this is a stimulating concept, since there are sufficient halls available and for rational use of resources, everything will be organised inside. The two Agora’s, very open "speakers' corner style" meeting rooms, are there also this year!
Then the Poster area… !!NEW!! this year are our proprietary standing paper poster boards which are completed with the digital/moderated eMP Islands and Best Poster stations. These electronic Moderated Poster islands are clusters of 7 plasma displays, each mounted on a special mediAVentures’ style construction with lots of glass, in combination with a rear projection screen. The software allows going through the scientific content in a user-friendly way. The whole idea is to create an more attractive and pleasant place where doctors love to stay longer and that stimulates interaction.
Next, we again construct 5 "Hubs", gold standard open, circular, central staged meeting rooms based on our I/O Forum© set-up. Hanging from rigging points in the ceiling structure of the exhibition hall, several concentric truss rings (hexagonal & circular) fly from perimeter to centre for different types of curtains (black-out, voile, acoustic, Molton), a big projection cube, special audio speakers, LED-lights & acoustic baffles for insulating the stage from reflected sounds. This all creates an optimal (audiovisual) experience and helps the congress grow.
The scientific area will be separated from the commercial exhibition area by our 3.5m high and more than 150m long #GreatGlassWall. We combine this wall with more than a 1.200 sound baffles to streamline visitor flows and improve acoustics in a decorative way.
