Industry program

The sponsored activities planned during the 17th Lymphoma Congress were received with enormous interest and almost all have already been booked. We are proud to share with the most relevant companies in the field of lymphomas these opportunities for networking, growth and professional training, which are possible both in person in Lugano as well as remotely.

The Industry program will be open to all participants registered to the Conference, but attendance to each symposium may be restricted by the organising Company's own policies.

Independent satellite symposia

Independent satellite symposia will take place on Tuesday, June 13 and in the late afternoon of Wednesday 14, Thursday 15 and Friday 16: out of 23 slots available, 19 have been booked and will provide companies with the possibility to present important innovations and cutting-edge researches to our participants!

The symposia will be performed in-person and streamed live via the 17-ICML Virtual Platform.
