Wide-ranging expertise in congress organisation
The diversity and range of expertise at AMP sets us apart from conventional congress management companies. We understand that holding a congress is about more than just logistics, it is about exchanging ideas, inspiring the next generation of medical professionals and enhancing the reputation of an association internationally.
While we are able to think big, however, we are also able to focus minds on the finer details. Our services include:
- sourcing of venue, booking of accommodation and travel
- contract negotiation with third-party suppliers
- logistical management
- financial management
- regulatory compliance and ethics
- abstract submission and review
- coordination of the scientific programme including liaison with speakers
- website design and maintenance, design of all printed materials
- promotion and media liaison
- fundraising and sponsorship
The partners at AMP have experience of organising international scientific congresses with up to 7,500 participants. Managing congresses of this scale involve the engagement of multiple stakeholders in a myriad of tasks which are often ethically complex and require specialist knowledge. For this reason, AMP has a dedicated scientific secretariat to coordinate the scientific programme with the association’s faculty and speakers.
Ethical compliance is crucial to the reputation and financial security of any professional medical association. We ensure that events are fully compliant with all relevant codes of ethical conduct in the pharmaceutical, medical technology (MedTech) and medical manufacturing industries. This includes the preparation of an application to the European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations (EFPIA) for an ethical evaluation of the event. In addition, AMP is experienced in gaining accreditation from the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS), so that delegates or participants will receive continuing medical education (CME) credits for their attendance.
Finally, AMP seeks to constantly innovate to deliver world-class conferences. By measuring success using satisfaction surveys, we strive to ensure continual improvement in the quality of the delegate experience every year.
