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 charitable organisations 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 in the field; take part in interactive activities that explore the world of genomics; view stands from exhibitors at the day; 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 a virtual exhibition hall and organisations will be able to man a stand and communicate their work with attendees. As an exhibitor, you will be able to upload resources in the form of documents and videos that showcase the work you do. You can make the stand your own and customise the information and titles you want to include. We’ll be there to help you come up with ideas to draw traffic to you. One of the most useful aspects of an in-person event is networking with people who visit your stand. We really wanted to mirror this at our event and, as attendees visit your organisation’s exhibition, you will be able to chat with them through the chat box or video call features.

A space at the event is free for charities and 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 topics like diagnostics and treatments; and disease specific talks. If you have a topic that you’d like to present, get in touch. We can discuss what topic you have in mind and see if it is possible for us to accommodate.

Got an idea for the Showcase that isn’t discussed here? We’d love to hear from you so get in touch!

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 ever!
