CALL FOR SOCIAL EVENTS & BUSINESS MEETINGS
In addition to the scientific programme prepared by FENS, the FENS Forum also provides opportunities to host various neuroscience activities. FENS invites other parties to organize several types of special meeting either before, during or after the FENS Forum 2012 in Barcelona. Organizations, institutions, agencies and companies can apply for one of these activities.
Organizations, societies, institutions, patient groups, project groups, companies, etc. are invited to organize a get-together during the FENS Forum, either in the Convention Centre or anywhere else in the city of Barcelona. Such meetings can be announced in the programme only when taking place after the last plenary lecture of each day of the Forum and announcement is subject to approval by FENS.
If socials are to be organized in the Convention Centre, either small rooms or restricted corridor areas, allowing gatherings of up to 100 persons, are available. A fee of € 500 is required for the space (for companies € 1,000 but exclusive of space rental), all other needs (audio- and audiovisual equipment, reception tables, chairs, food and beverage services) should be applied for and will be charged. Socials in the Convention Centre have to end before 10.00 p.m.
If socials are to be organized outside the Convention Centre, the Forum management (Kenes International) can advice on and/or can mediate the organization of the social at any place in Barcelona. A fee of € 200 is required for announcement in the programme.
