We can do the classics and standards but also want to implement forward-thinking and innovative formats, address the latest developments in the congress industry as well as current topics and requirements, and from time to time we offer something a little special. Watch this space for more and more stories that move us.
Innovative presentation formats – Classroom-style scientific lectures are a key part of traditional congress formats. But innovative and interactive presentation styles can help make a whole event more attractive. E-poster islands, Pecha Kucha, live surgery and pro & con debates with e-voting are just some of the lecture elements that can help convey contents in a more interactive, exciting and hands-on manner.
Young talents/membership growth – Today, medical associations are often faced by the challenge of how to gain young practitioners and scientists as new active members. Together, we will develop attractive and innovative offers for young talents. A congress should serve as a platform to effectively communicate the activities and services of an association.
The congress as a brand – Overwhelmed by the huge number of training options, it is becoming increasingly difficult for your target group to make the right choice. wikonect will give your congress a face, by establishing high quality standards and accurately evaluating and developing your brand image. An event will always benefit from a corporate design that makes it stand out from the crowd.
Industry partner – Due to growing cost pressures, shrinking marketing budgets and divergent compliance and transparency standards it is becoming ever harder to finance and find sponsors for scientific congresses. Together with the industry and our clients we meet the challenge of creating new meeting and participation concepts that address these developments.
Compliance and codes – Of course, we take account of sensitive compliance requirements and industry-specific codes. A transparent cooperation is our top priority. We act according to the regulations of the professional associations such as the FSA Transparency Code (Freiwillige Selbstkontrolle für die Arzneimittelindustrie e.V.), which is recognised by the EFPIA (European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations). In addition, we observe the individual country-specific codes of the pharmaceutical industry, such as the Medtech Kompass of BVMed (Bundesverband Medizintechnologie e.V.) and the Eucomed Guidelines.
Transparency – For us transparency is a key factor of our cooperation. We will give you a completely transparent break-down of our agency fees – commissions or kick-backs of other service providers are passed on one-to-one and credited to the congress budget. We will provide you with regular reports on your budget, for example, so that you are always up-to-date.
