It is an event for families, but also a event which brings generations together to dream of fairies or be surprised by daring acrobats.

Diversification of events. Once again, IFEMA is committed to hosting a variety of large events as a complement to its trade fair and congress activities, a path it recently embarked on, with initiatives to also become a benchmark in the cultural and leisure program of the city.

It is one of the continent's XXL congresses, an essential moment in the healthcare world, which gathered 14,300 professionals. The EULAR congress brought together doctors, scientists, health professionals and representatives from the pharmaceutical industry around the world, from 14th to 17th of June. Quite an organisation challenge! We spoke with Antonio Guadagnoli of MCI Group, OPC who was in charge of organizing the congress and we review some of the highlights of the same.

Exhibition area. Large stands and striking designs are key to draw the congressman’s attention to the stands. So the stands featured elements that transmitted the identity of the exhibitor through music, rest areas with wifi and connections to charge smartphones, working areas, coffee and drinks, virtual reality animations to fully understand the various products and their healing impact, etc. An example: Roche's booth was inspired by nature, with pink trees and country sounds. Pharmaceutical company Otezla imitated the European cafés including the typical terraces, with stone-style flooring and vintage walls, where congressmen could enjoy a coffee while keeping informed about the products. Innovation is galore in a large congress like this one.

Connectivity: an essential element in congresses

Foto Connectivity: an essential element in congresses

Congresses connect large communities of professionals who, for a few days, exhibit, connect, communicate their ideas and innovations to their industry. And as you may have noticed, communication has changed and always involves the vital wifi networks: presentations, registration, presentations, stands... and more generally, communication between attendees and their access to documents. This represents a new challenge for large venues, in the implementation, management and administration of the wifi service since demand for bandwidth increases every year and gets more complex. Our appetite for data never decreases. IFEMA has dedicated the highest attention to issue and innovated in its services. Carlos Lamers, director of IT services of IFEMA, tells us how the service has evolved in its facilities and how IFEMA has managed to offer improvements and innovation in this respect.
