Sponsorship Opportunities

BGS events

Overview

The British Geriatrics Society is committed to fostering research and providing continuing professional development (CPD).

Read more about the BGS here

The aims of our meetings are to:

  • highlight current good clinical practice;
  • provide a platform to present current research outcomes
  • showcase successful service delivery.

Exhibitions at events are an integral part of our meetings

We accept abstracts from researchers around the world and welcome multi-disciplinary audiences, with the work showcased in the exhibition area.

Each meeting focuses on key themes in the healthcare of older people and is built around our central CPD programme to address knowledge gaps, explore solutions to critical issues and to address the changing needs of today’s ageing population.

The conferences feature plenary sessions with internationally renowned invited speakers, as well as parallel sessions devoted to special interest areas and clinical developments, workshops and symposia.

2020 Sponsorship

To adapt to the current world, BGS meetings to the end of 2020 will be delivered virtually. We will use Swapcard as our event platform.

Participants and sponsors can expect the same high-quality educational content as in a face-to-face meeting, and there will be opportunities for virtual delegates to network and visit exhibitors before, during and after each meeting. Participants joining live will be able to engage with each other, presenters and sponsors through interactive activities during the session, as well as through 1-to-1 and group calls and chats. Recordings of the presentations, including sponsored symposia will be accessible post-event.

Why sponsor?

What are the sponsorship options?

 #Symposia 

For our Spring and Autumn Conferences there are five packages with symposia slots. Successful sponsors will be able to present an educational programme relevant to the themes of the meeting, subject to review and discussion from the BGS Meetings Committee. Partnership packages can be tailored to your company’s own needs. All delegates attending will be encouraged to attend the symposia and visit the exhibition stands. 

Our Special Interest Group meetings also support symposia. Sponsors will be able to present a 30 minute session relevant to the special interest area,  subject to review and discussion from the SIG.

Please see the downloadable pdf for more details

#Livestreaming and post-event resources

With pressures on study leave and study budgets, online access to continuing professional development (CPD) and BGS services becomes more and more important. Via introducing family-friendly events, Livestreaming content and publishing post-event resources the challenges facing HCPs can be addressed. Sponsors can support the live streaming of content, and the provision of the recordings via the BGS website with our Educational support options.
