WAEH meeting 2019 – London

The WAEH is the global association of standalone eye hospitals and aims to continuously improve the experience, care and outcomes of patients with eye disorders. There are currently 46 member-hospitals, the newest member being the Kisii Eye Hospital in southwestern Kenya which means there are now WAEH members on every continent.  More information about WAEH is available at https://www.waeh.org/en/.

Each year the WAEH holds a conference hosted by a member hospital.  Recent meetings have been held at the Singapore National Eye Centre (2015), the Rotterdam Eye Hospital (2016), Tianjin Medical University Eye Hospital (2017) and at the University of Michigan’s Kellogg Eye Center (2018).

The 13th annual meeting of the World Association of Eye Hospitals will take place from Wednesday 5th June until Saturday 8th June in London, UK. During this meeting, organised in close cooperation with Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, cutting-edge knowledge and experience from Eye Hospitals from all over the globe will be presented. We expect approximately 125 people from the global network of 46 eye hospitals and eye clinics from all over the world: ranging from medical personnel, allied health staff, fundraisers, ophthalmologists, to CEO’s.

At WAEH 2019 you can present your brand and latest products to the global WAEH network. Being an active part of the WAEH 2019 will strengthen your position in the eye hospital market, expand your global eye network, and increase your valuable goodwill with eye hospitals from all over the world.  

Sponsoring thought leadership and raising visibility

We are delighted to invite sponsors and exhibitors to commit their support towards this upcoming 13th annual meeting of the WAEH. By partnering, sponsoring or exhibiting at the annual meeting of the WAEH, your organisation is supporting and participating in the creation and exchange of knowledge between the world’s leading researchers, practitioners and policy-makers working with, or within, eye hospitals worldwide.

A knowledge-led approach to sponsorship creates opportunities to align your brand to a range of content-focused opportunities, including themed sessions and posters, workshops, colloquiums or networking sessions such as the welcome reception, opening dinner, and lunch sessions. These opportunities can be combined with other more traditional branding opportunities to raise the visibility of your organisation, such as an exhibition stand, conference bag, name badge sponsorship and advertising online or in the printed final programme.

As part of the conference we are also arranging a number of site visits on the afternoon of Wednesday 5 June. Our event website will be ready to view as soon as possible via www.waeh.org

With very best wishes
