Satellite symposia are an integral part of modern medical conferences, providing healthcare professionals with vital opportunities to take part in small group discussions specifically designed to meet their continuing medical education needs. They are a chance for physicians to meet and hear from other professionals in their therapy area including, if they are lucky, a renowned national or international KOL in the field.

Attending medical conferences is a great way for healthcare professionals to learn about the latest advances in therapies and treatments for diseases in their chosen area. Not only can Specialists listen to lectures delivered by world-renowned Key Opinion Leaders, with whom they may not normally come into contact, but they can speak directly to exhibitors, listen to abstracts, read posters, attend workshops… the benefits go on. However, attendance at these events comes at a price, both literally and figuratively.

As highlighted in our previous blog post from the European CME Conference, virtual meetings are here to stay. Although there has been some talk of ‘zoom fatigue’ in the past few weeks, recent surveys of healthcare professionals (HCPs) has highlighted a continued enthusiasm for online meetings if done right. Further evidence is rolling in from successful virtual medical congresses held throughout 2020, reinforcing the benefits of well-planned digital events.

Most people would argue that there’s no substitute to meeting face to face, and for good reason. Communication is about more than words — tone and body language are key, and this can often get lost outside of face-to-face conversations. However, it’s not always possible or practical to be physically present for every discussion, whether due to restrictions on travel (thanks to Covid-19 or otherwise) or for reasons of cost or convenience.
