Sponsorship & Donation Options

Sponsorship and Donation Options

Supporting regional delegates is a concept central to the ethos of DevelopingEM. It’s an idea that we applied to our previous conferences in Havana and in Salvador. In total we have fully sponsored the attendance of over 200 regional delegates in the last three years. This sponsorship has included support for attendance at the plenary sessions, optional workshops and social functions.

How it works

DevelopingEM has as its sole revenue source the contributions of its delegates.

We use both your registration fees and your donations to fund the attendance of regional colleagues.

This generally takes the form of complimentary registration for the conference but also has been applied to cover transport and accommodation expenses for those delegates travelling from particularly remote locations.

This year our local organizing committee has requested a local delegate fee structure and this approximates 10% of the international fees for all elements of the conference.

During the registration process, delegates have the opportunity to contribute directly to assisting delegate sponsorship.

With strict management of our finances, each 2 full paying delegates allows us to fully assist and support a regional delegate to attend.


DevelopingEM’s conferences act as crucial mechanisms for the two-way exchange of information on topics of interest between critical care practitioners from around the globe.

Without our sponsorship program many regional delegates would miss out on the experience of the conference as well as the opportunity to interact with and learn from colleagues from a range of critical care systems.

It remains one of DevelopingEM’s priorities to promote these types of

global interactions and we hope our sponsorship process is one way to expand this collaboration.
