Additional Information

Catering

Lunch is provided for all fully-registered delegates during the main days of the congress. Lunch boxes will be served at the entrance of all session rooms 15-minutes prior to the start of the session. In an effort to reduce waste and ensure various dietary needs are considered, the ISN will manage catering at lunch and this is reflected in the symposium package fees. Breakfast and evening symposia slots are not catered for by the organizer. Companies hosting an industry symposium during a breakfast or evening slot may organize their own catering at an additional cost. Please get in touch with Romane Blondel at rblondel@theisn.org for more information.

Program and faculty

Industry content must be reviewed and approved by the WCN Congress Organizing Committee (COC) who will ascertain the scientific value of the program. Companies will be notified of any need for revisions, which must be taken into consideration. All modifications must be approved by the COC. The symposium program will only be added to the WCN’24 website once the COC has approved and full payment has been received.

Program/speaker management by ISN is offered for a limited number of industry sessions. Please get in touch with Charleigh Claire at cclaire@theisn.org for more information.

The travel, accommodation or registration of the faculty participating in industry symposia faculty and/or spotlight stages are not included in the fees.

Rehearsal slots

It is possible to organize a rehearsal slot for industry symposia. The fee is $1,000 USD. Limited slots are available.
