In 2020, the semi-annual Swiss Oncology and Hematology Congress took place between 18 and 21 November. Although originally the event was to be held in Zurich, pandemic-related restrictions meant that SOHC had to be reworked into an all-digital framework.
This congress is a relatively new event that was in its 3rd edition in 2020. On this occasion, our client was the prestigious Swiss Society of Hematology, which is committed to research, innovation, training, and quality assurance in oncology and hematology. The society’s work is an international point of reference for scientific progress in these medical specialities. The Swiss Society of Hematology was supported by other renowned organisations, such as SAKK, Swiss Cancer Research, and the Swiss Society of Radio-Oncology.
The scientific programme consisted of presentations, e-poster submissions, and award sessions. Programme highlights covered cutting edge research in subjects like hemostasis, clinical hemato- oncology, solid tumour oncology, and experimental hematology. The information presented at the event appeared later on in the well-respected journal Swiss Medical Weekly.
Congrex had the pleasure to assist the organiser in the design and organisation of this online event, which was attended by 1,370 participants. In addition, our team provided all the necessary technical support for a simultaneous virtual exhibition, in which 35 exhibitors interacted with attendees in a virtual environment.
