Case Study:

Conference Management from A to Z

Annual Diabetes Congress

K.I.T. Group possess deep experience and knowledge about the planning, organization and management of conferences garnered through three decades of working for some of the most prestigious institutions and associations in the world.

For more than 18 years, K.I.T. Group has organized the “Diabetes Congress” on behalf of the Deutsche Diabetes Gesellschaft (DDG). The Diabetes Congress is an annual scientific conference with about 6,000 delegates per year.

In May 2016 we have organized the 51st annual Diabetes Congress. About 5,939 conference attendees were offered a platform to scientifically educate themselves through more than 200 symposia, workshops, poster sessions, free lectures and working groups. Thus, this gathering did allow participants the ability to network with colleagues from research, science and practices, health policy makers, and representatives from the pharma industry.

In addition to the scientific program of the Diabetes Congress, we have also organized a Diabetes Forum as well as a trade-show exhibition with 73 exhibitors. This was the ideal possibility to obtain information through the forum where boards, committees, working groups as well as non-profit institutions met to present their findings and discuss issues. In addition, the accompanying trade-show exhibition offered a wide range of the latest products and services on the market.

In connection with the organization of theconference, K.I.T. Group was responsible for the overall project management including budget planning and financial control. Furthermore, K.I.T. Group oversaw the abstract and speaker management, sponsor acquisition, registration and housing services, exhibition management, communications and marketing. Thus, all relevant aspects related to the logistical and technical infrastructure of the conference were handled by K.I.T. Group to deliver a flawless conference and to create the perfect forum for education and networking to all delegates.
