Sponsorship Opportunities

Sponsoring ERS features and services is a great way to partner.

To raise corporate visibility at the ERS International Congress. Priority on sponsorship of the items listed below will be granted to the sponsor that supported the same item during the previous Congress.

ERS Congress App

The ERS Congress App is a significant feature of the Congress and is no longer just an electronic version of the Congress Guide - it is a Congress console which has proven to be an essential part of the delegate experience.

The ERS Congress App allows delegates to:

  • Navigate the programme and plan their time during Congress
  • View sessions they have missed
  • Watch the Live@ERS broadcast
  • See which sessions are most popular
  • Contact other delegates, send messages and exchange business cards
  • View posters and search abstracts
  • Access floor plans and exhibition plans
  • Request follow up on Industry sessions
  • Access preparatory content for sessions and courses

Over 80 % of Congress delegates use the App with their smartphone, tablet or website version on their computer. In London delegates viewed sessions from the programme over 500,000 times. There are many ways to achieve visibility for your participation in our Congress by investing in the sponsorship of the Congress App.


There are a number of sponsorship opportunities available to help raise your visibility at Congress including advertising on the carousel for the mainsponsor and targeted packages.

  • ERS APP E-INSERTS (only for Industry Symposia promotion)
