Each session type can be selected for access for in-person participants only or access for both in-person and online participants:

These one-hour sessions are designed to provide industry the opportunity to interact with participants on a specific topic. To this end, the maximum number of participants that can be in the room at the same time is set at 100 and no seating is included in the fee as it should be a different session compared to the standard session layout of Industry Satellite Symposium.

Within the constraints set by the basic configuration of the room, organisers are free to shape this interactive session at the venue as they wish, but plans need the approval of ECNP and should fit into the time available for these sessions, including set-up and dismantling. An Industry Science Exchange at the venue can only be life-streamed onto the online platform if the format the company decides upon for this session can be filmed and live streamed with set-up as available. This option needs to be put for approval to ECNP before it can be selected.

The Industry Science Exchange sessions are open to all registered in-person congress participants on a first-come-first-served basis due to the maximum capacity set.

Organisers of an Industry Science Exchange session for in-person participants only will be charged a fixed fee of EUR 10,400 (excl. VAT). Organisers of an Industry Science Exchange at the venue and life-streamed for online participants will be charged a fixed fee of EUR 16,000 (excl. VAT). 

Industry Product Theatre (IPT)
Industry Product Theatre sessions (30 minutes) provide a podium for industry to share with participants on a broad range of issues, including new treatment approaches, the uses of specific medications, clinical insights, innovative services and product demonstrations. Industry Product Theatre sessions may be organised in connection with the 34th ECNP Congress during the time slots mentioned below. Industry Product Theatre sessions are organised in parallel with the official ECNP scientific programme and the programmes will be reviewed for balance and rigour by the Scientific Programme Committee.
