To perform a demonstration on a live patient, three conditions must be met (practitioner, product, venue):
CONDITION 1. the PRACTITIONER performing the medical act should:
Regarding international speakers arriving to each congress from all over the world, they are certainly an asset for international conferences like IMCAS. IMCAS has a long tradition of welcoming them and continues to accept them readily. Should your company wish to invite international speakers who are not locally board certified, please follow the steps below:
CONDITION 2. the PRODUCT or device used should be registered or legally authorized by the local authorities within the country.
NOTA: Live demonstrations of procedures/products/devices dealing with PRP or vulvovaginal treatments are strictly forbidden and can't be performed during IMCAS congresses.
CONDITION 3. the VENUE where the live demo is performed follows the following rules:
for BOOTH space:Live treatments are not permitted on booths. A demonstration on a booth is permitted only if there is no penetration of the product and/or no action of the device used. Therefore, only light cosmetic treatments dedicated to the surface of the skin are allowed, after prior approval of the Scientific Committee.
for SYMPOSIA or LIVE DEMONSTRATIONS:Live treatments are to be performed
for TRAINING LAB:Under all circumstances there can be a maximum of 10-15 people in the Training Lab at all times.
Please note that for any live demonstration, the company is entirely responsible from A to Z of its performance. IMCAS is not to be held responsible for any step of the procedure.
We remind you that IMCAS holds the copyright to all educational materials presented or derived from its meetings, such as: video recordings of live demonstrations / symposia / handouts / posters / abstracts / presentation synopses.
The information presented during IMCAS congresses may not be published or broadcasted in any media in its original format (except for news releases).
Consequently, all sponsored sessions such as live demos, symposia, and guest lectures are derivative products of IMCAS and the property of IMCAS.
Bringing in any cameras or devices from an external supplier is required to obtain an approval from IMCAS secretariat and they should only be used for immediate purpose - no recording for future use is authorized.
a. Patient recruitment
Here are the three vital points when recruiting patients for your demonstration:
Therefore, it is best that the supporting company is in charge of hiring the patient(s) for their sponsored activities.b. Patient logistics
How time-slots are assigned and scheduled:
Depending on the corresponding legal environment of the congress location, our Scientific Committee may require that live demonstrations during a symposium be performed in a medicalized establishment, either a third entity (e.g. a clinic, hospital room) or a cabinet, treatment room at the congress venue and broadcasted from it to the conference room where the audience are seated.
Should the company choose to perform their live demo in the treatment room at the congress venue provided by IMCAS complimentary, a 30-min time-slot of the treatment room is assigned for each symposium.
As an example, for a 2 consecutive hours symposium, a total 1 hour treatment room time slot is assigned within the symposia.
To see how to handle patient logistics and utilize the patient preparation area, refer to here.
All products which require an assigned time slot or location are treated on a “first come, first served” basis. As with all other IMCAS services, our team does the best to fulfill your requirements and ensure a great service!
All assignments and schedules are completely transparent and you can view our calendars and maps online at any time:
Presentation(s) are to be uploaded at the Club Lounge/Preview room. You can find its location on the congress exhibition map.
Important points to take into consideration:
Decoration and promotional material can be set up at the beginning of your symposium. If your symposium is right after a lunch or a coffee break you may use that time to set up.
> Distribution of products to attendees:
Surveys, questionnaires, goodies, flyers, etc. can be given to attendees as they enter the room or during the symposium. Previous scientific sessions may not be interrupted for this purpose. You may place the objects on the seats in the room only if your symposium is after a coffee or lunch break.
IMCAS conferences welcome two categories of sessions:
Great news! Your sponsored activity can easily be published on IMCAS Academy and reach over 15,000 registered members (and growing).
Keep in mind that for a lecture to be placed in the IMCAS Academy library the speaker (and patient) must sign a consent form agreeing to its publication.
Educational grant sessions are eligible for medical continuous education credits. Therefore, they differ from a sponsored session as they have to comply with the rules of accrediting organizations. This is why it is the IMCAS Scientific Board that makes the final decision regarding content and lecturers for these sessions.
An Educational Grant is a form of unconditioned financial support. The funds are allocated to cover specific costs of the activity that are related to the provision of a balanced, accurate and scientifically independent activity.
Grants are the way for the industry to support unbiased evidence-based medicine, since the scientific content is entirely developed and chosen by the Scientific Committee. In turn, due to their objective and protected status, these sessions are eligible for CME Accreditation.

When registering, the complete contact details of the attendee are requested. Badges are nominative, therefore, once the registration has been treated and validated, it cannot be modified.
IMCAS automatically provides this badge to the company's selected speaker. These badges are nominative and MUST be used by the speaker of the sponsored activity whether he/she will present during their symposium, live demonstration, guest lecture or tech lecture. These badges cannot be transferred or shared to another person and gives the speaker access to their own lecture(s), sponsored sessions, and the exhibition area only.
If you would like to provide your speaker with a Physician badge, so that he can access all of the scientific sessions, you can order one-by-one (or in a group to get a discounted rate) through your company account here.
Badges are nominative, therefore each attendee must retrieve their badge individually at the dedicated welcome desk. To retrieve your badge, please present:
Check out our key moments online to find out the opening hours of the welcome desk.
Exhibitor badges have access to the exhibition space and sponsored sessions.
Access to scientific sessions is granted to attendees with «delegate» type badges only. Should you wish to attend these sessions, your exhibitor badge needs to be upgraded for an additional fee, payable either at the welcome desk of the conference or by sending us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The number of included badges is determined by your sponsorship level, regardless if the company has exceptionally booked two booths.
The amount of badges per sponsorship level can be verified on the exhibitor guide here.
- Exhibitor badge is only valid for industry representative
- Physician badge is only valid for physician
Badges that are registered for the incorrect specialty (e.g. exhibitor badge register for physician / physician badge register for industry representative) will be automatically forfeited once the submitted info is validated. No modification is allowed and/or no refund.
Starting at 15 badges you can take advantage of great savings on badge registrations!

In order for IMCAS to provide both attendees and exhibitors with the highest quality, the organization and logistics of all services used for events and/or activities during an IMCAS Congress must be arranged directly through the IMCAS secretariat.
Therefore, for the use of ANY external service providers, previous approval from IMCAS Secretariat must be received.

This policy guarantees the mastering of all the services taking place during the events from A to Z.
You will be asked, at the end of each conference, to submit your evaluation form in which you will be able to
give some feedback on the congress.
We also welcome feedback from our exhibitors year round. Please send your comments and suggestions to email@example.com.

The insurance must cover any and all third party claims and damages resulting from or arising from any negligence, acts or omissions, or willful misconduct of the Exhibitor, its directors, officers, employees, representatives, contractors, invitees or guests.
For example: If an accident of any kind were to occur during a demonstration or lecture, caused by a company representative or speaker invited by the company, which happened to damage the venue or any of it's properly, the company and the speaker are to be held responsible and their insurance should cover the incident, providing answer to the claim.
It is the exhibitors responsibility to obtain the corresponding marketing and commercialization licenses of the products that are displayed, promoted or utilized during the event.
The product or device has to be legally authorized by the local authorities within the country where the event is held. Products without a license are not permitted to be promoted.
Please note that some countries may provide a ‘Temporary Licence.’
