Virtual Event – 14th May
Opportunity for involvement!
Would you like to be involved in Genomic Partnership Wales’ biggest event of 2021? The Genomics Showcase will take place virtually on 14th May 2021 and we want to offer your organisation the chance to be part of it.
What is the Genomics Showcase?
The Genomics Showcase is an event designed to showcase the field of genomics, and its potential to improve healthcare to the people of Wales. There will be something for everyone with events for the public, patients, schools, colleges, health professionals and researchers. Attendees will have the opportunity to attend talks from experts, take part in interactive activities that explore the world of genomics, view stands from exhibitors and participate in many more activities.
How can you be involved?
Although the event is online, we want to recreate the feel of an in-person event as much as possible. There will be virtual exhibition halls and organisations will be able to man a stand and communicate their work with attendees. You will be able to choose between the Public Exhibition Hall and the Professionals Exhibition Hall, which will be limited to health professionals and researchers.
As an exhibitor, you will be able to upload resources in the form of documents and videos that showcase your work. You can make the stand your own and customise the information and titles you want to include. One of the most useful aspects of an in-person event is networking with people who visit your stand. We want to mirror this at the showcase and, as attendees visit your organisation’s exhibition, you will be able to chat with them through the chat box or video call features.
There is no charge to take part in the event, but spaces are limited so if you are interested in having a stand get in touch at the email address below. Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
Throughout the day, we will be hosting talks from a wide range of speakers. There will be general genomics talks, sessions dedicated to specific areas such as diagnostics and treatments and disease specific talks. If you have a topic that you’d like to present, get in touch. We can discuss the subject you have in mind and whether it can be accommodated.
Do you have an idea for the Showcase that isn’t mentioned here? If so, we’d be pleased to hear from you so get in touch.
Going forward, the GPW Genomics Showcase will be an annual event and a highlight of the year. Don’t miss the opportunity to be part of the first one!
